Spent the day here. It started out quite rainy, but then it blossomed into a nice sunny day. Both sides of the park (Gulf / Atlantic) were good. I would have liked to have Kayaked around the park but didn't get the chance. I did some snorkeling and wading. At the far northern end of the Key is a place... More

I'm so glad I didn't listen to the reviewers whining about seaweed. Yes, there was a lot of seaweed on the Atlantic side. However, the gulf side had very little and even the Atlantic side was tolerable. We arrived about 10 am on a weekday. So glad we did because we were able to put our stuff under a palm... More

I love this beach! The blue water is mesmerizing! You can walk out so far and the water doesnt get very deep. Wonderful to snorkel here to see pretty fish, the water is so clear and got to love the white sand. Watch out for sharks, I saw quite a few here, but seems like they were used to the... More

My husband and I visited Bahia Honda based on reviews we read and are so glad we did. The beaches were nice, and the water was beautiful! Perfect area for families with small children because the water is clear and shallow. We booked a snorkeling tour and it was fabulous. Our crew was Captain PT and first mate Jody. They... More

This is a State Park that offers swimming, boating, and camping. The camping can be either by tent, trailer or cabin (I would not recommend tent camping in the summer months when it is extremely hot unless you are a true pioneer.) The boat ramps are the nicest I have seen in the Keys, The beaches in the Keys are... More

My friend and I went to this beach based on his past experience of beautiful wide white sandy beaches. This stretch of beach had seaweed one foot high. There were miles of seaweed on the ocean side and bay side as far as the eye can see. The seaweed smelled and made the water green not blue. If you want... More

Be sure you get a site with power. I booked 7 months ahead and did not know I was at a site with no power which means no fans at night. Lovely park but we went to a hotel. :(

We heard so much about this place, so we stopped there on our way back from the keys. The natural beach was a nice to see, but I would not swim there or stay over, however, it was nice to see it. The best part was to observe Henry Flagler's train bridge. Worthwhile to visit, but not as great as... More

I have been to key west many times, first trip up the keys. Well worth the drive. Park is amazing. YES there is a fee. Many parks have them, and not just in Florida. If you stop by the nature center, you will find why the sea weed is left on the beach. Yes it does smell when it decomposes,... More

So yea when we first stopped and seen the seaweed we freaked out and was disappointed, but when we heard that this was good compared to most we was happy. You can't control weather and things of that nature when you plan a vacation ahead of time. But the Florida keys aren't known for their beaches so this is paradise.... More
