I spent the afternoon there with my daughters ages 17 & 13 before going on a Dolphin Dip. This park is very clean and friendly to everyone. There is a fee to get in based on the number of people entering the park. I paid $9.50 for three of us. There is a concession stand/gift shop right across from the... More

...so treasure the beaches in this wonderful state park. Yes, like most beaches in the Keys, there are areas offshore where the bottom is all seagrass, and there are areas of the beach that are piled high with seaweed. But there are also wonderful areas to wade, swim and play with lovely sandy bottom, and you can walk offshore for... More

We didn't spend any time on the beach but we did the snorkeling. We snorkeled a lot in key west and then came up here due to reviews and locals suggestions. The Looe Key national park snorkeling is stunning! The reef is alive and well. There are tons of fish, a few small sharks, corals and we even saw a... More

Went tent camping in the middle of the record summer heat, which was my own dumb fault, otherwise an amazing trip. There are three public beachs to choose from (Calusa, Loggerhead, and Sandspur), easy walking trails, good fising, friendly staff, clean restrooms and showers. I couldn't have asked for a nicer place. It can be hard getting a longer reservation... More

OK, it's not as good as Hawaiian beaches, but it's still a very nice beach and probably the best in the Keys. We spent half a day at Bahia Honda and we all (wife and two kids) had a great time. The beach is sandy, and although there's plenty of seaweed when you wade out, you can find spots where... More

Loved it. Gulf side vastly exceeds the Atlantic side, a slice of heaven. Minimal waves, nice current but calm areas too, some tropical fish, great facilities for a public park (gift shop concessions, showers, changing area), nice people.

Went here twice during our stay in the Keys. The beach is kept very natural so if you're expecting an immaculate beach this is not for you. However, if you want to see Florida at its finest and have a good time in crystal clear water. ..GO HERE! Very family friendly in a beautiful state park setting. My husband and... More

We visited this beach on July 19, 2014 and we found it to be unimaginably atrocious. It smelled like a garbage can, and wasn't too pretty, either. Sea grass was piled at least 4 inches high on the entire beach, which is only about 6 feet wide before it immediately becomes shallow water with a rocky, shelly bottom. But the... More

The beaches were full of seagrass and we checked them all out. they have a couple of different beaches that you can try out. We took the snorkel tour to Loone Key and this was amazing. We got to see a HUGE Goliath Grouper, shark, reef fish and MANY MANY others. My son who is 11 rated this 5 stars... More

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
