We thoroughly enjoyed the gorgeous beach, the old bridge, most if all highly recommend the Snorkling at Bahia Honda. The crew was excellent and very experienced. The gift shop has reasonable prices and a great selection for suveniers.

Love, love, love this State Park. Beautiful and clean facilities. Bath house, beaches, roads/trails are all well-maintained. We got sandwiches at their cafe and they were delicious. The snorkeling concession was outstanding. Professionally staffed, safe and FUN! We liked it so much that we went back the day after our snorkeling trip and spent 1/2 the day on their "long"...

Spent the day and had a wonderful time relaxing and playing in the crystal blue water. I can see why it was voted one of the top 10 beaches in the US.

Be forewarned, the beaches in the Keys are not the beautiful white sand beaches with big waves like you usually think of in Florida, But, this is the best beach in the Keys. It is mostly sandy and there are a few interesting fish. There are really no waves, so it's good for swimming.

At high tide there seems to be only a narrow band of beach to park a much needed umbrella. On the other hand if you like floating around with exotic and curious sea creatures high tide is the time to visit. A school of small fish joined me apon entering the water and stayed with me for about an hour.... More

The clarity of water here varies just like in any coastal waters,but is for sure the most clear water you will find in the united states.The water is of coarse expected to be salty (this is ocean water obviously) so i cant understand why some people would complain.The beach is small and not alot of it,but that is quite fine...

Staying in Miami last Christmas we decided to take a visit. If you are travelling to Key West it makes an ideal stop off point. The beaches are lovely and peaceful and there is a lot of wildlife to be seen. The park rangers do a lovely job in preserving the place and are very knowledgeable about the fauna of... More

We visited here on our way down to Key West. It really was gorgeous, but the bayside beach was super small, and crowded even in May. However, the water was lovely, an easy place to walk around and explore a little, easy place to take gorgeous pics. Not really an awesome snorkeling place, like many reviews say. The water was...
