We enjoyed an afternoon here just relaxing in the water - we saw a lot of fish, including a sting ray that swam directly past us! Lots of fish jumping out of the water the entire time. It was great fun to watch the fish jump, although we had to watch out for the jelly fish. Very beautiful beach.

Stopped on the way down to Key West, I didn't stay long because I planned on stopping on the way back. The weather didn't permit that so I was grateful to have checked it out earlier. Next time I'll make sure to spend more time, it's gorgeous!

Bahia Honda State Park is a pristine little tropical oasis 37 miles north of Key West. The campsites were nice, most of them with shaded areas. The beach is one of the finest in the US.

Beautiful place to walk and relax near the beach. We also loves the old railroad bridgehead and the view from up there.

Bahia Honda is easily the best and most diverse beach in the Keys. The park offers great camping, swimming and fishing opportunities. There is a great sandy beach as well as plenty of coral filled sots that are perfect for snorkeling. There is also excellent kayaking and fishing. The park has clean restrooms and a nice marina and store. Bahia... More

This beach had a lot more room to move around than the other state park beaches (state parks do charge a nominal fee for entry). There was a nice picnic area also and a path to walk. Like other Keys beaches, lots of sea grass. This might be a nice quiet spot with smaller children and did see several families... More

While staying and Key West and wanting to find a nice beach, we came across Bahia Honda on TripAdvisor. It was a ways away but decided to go anyways... Glad we did. It was by far the most peaceful and relaxing beach we found that wasnt overcrowded. We did come in the off season and on a weekday but they... More

My son enjoyed their beaches because he could snorkel off the shore and they had clear areas free from grass and seaweed. You can also take a walk on the old bridge which had a great view. They also had a nature center which we didn't have a chance to visit.

...we loved it! The staff really takes pride in making sure you are informed and safe. Make a reservation and get there early. If you need a place to stay check out my review on Seascape Motel...right on the ocean. During the snorkeling part we really didn't want to get out of the water! So much to see,
