Bahia Honda has beaches, campgrounds on the beach, RV sites, kayak rentals and dive trips. The place is pretty cool. Not a lot of marine life if you are snorkeling from the beach. The beach on the east side was real narrow and a bit nasty with the seaweed. The beach on the west side was great. The park rangers... More

No trip to the Keys would be complete without a trip to this amazing park! Reasonable admission prices and lots to do. We swam in the sea for about 30 minutes and got to see a sea turtle nest at the bottom of the stairs to one of the beaches. Then, we headed up to the gift shop and rented... More

I had heard that sandspur beach was beautiful. Well Mother Nature ruined it with seaweed. It smelled horrible, was infested with sand fleas and it was everywhere. Try the other side of the park. It looked to have less seaweed. Would only go back if the seaweed problem went away.

Best beach in the area, with all of the rentals and showers. Amazing and beautiful! They also have snorkeling tours for an extra fee. Plus they have a snack shack.

The water is so beautiful and clear. When the tide is out, you can just sit on the sandbar and enjoy the water. Great area for snorkeling. The trails are beautiful, especially around sunset. There is a great view of the bridge; great picture-taking spot.

Nice. Clean beach. Water was wonderful. The sand fleas/flies were horrible. Sat down towels went in water for about 20 min. Came back to a swarm on our towels. Had this issue not occurred would have spent longer. Bridge side beach did not have this issue fortunately. It is a great place for families. Truly a beautiful area! Will try... More

We went all up and down the keys and liked this beach the best. The beaches in the keys are not the nice sandy beaches, but this one is as good as it gets. VERY good snorkeling and the kids liked it. We drove an hour each way during our vacation to come since it was so much better than... More

This place was amazing, best experience ever! We all had a blast snorkeling, time flew while we were here. Wish we could have been here earlier. The shore line was a little rocky but no big deal! As soon as you get into the water and feel the sand in between your toes, it's surreal! The views are incredible. Definitely... More

This was nice beach area. If we had more time, we would have gone to another area of the park that we noticed on our way out. If you go for snorkeling on the bridge side of the park, take your fins. There is bit of a current that makes it difficult to make it very far.
