We stopped in on a Sunday afternoon. We paid the $9 fee for 2 people and chose the beach to the left of the gate. It wasn't really busy which was good because there is very little space to put a towel - especially with all the seaweed. We were in the water just a few minutes and saw a... More

My boyfriend and I decided to drive from Miami to the keys..I wasn't sure which part along the keys would be the prettiest so I google mapped the keys and found Bahia Honda state park - the brightest spot on the map!!!! I wasn't disappointed when we arrived!!! It was about a 3 hour drive from Miami. 45 minutes further... More

An inexpensive gem to snorkel. Walk out as far as you like and have a look around. We saw all sizes and colors of fish. A nice little beach for some privacy for a romantic walk.

Enjoying this state park depends highly on the weather. That being said, we were still happy to visit to check it out and did go in the water and use the shower, changing room facilities. My daughter had been before on a sunny day and could not wait to return with us, but without the blue sky and water, it... More

My husband and I decided to stay in one of the cabins this year (2 yrs ago we camped). From the moment we entered the park, we were greeted by wonderful rangers. Our cabin was super clean and everything we needed was there; all we had to do is get groceries. I so enjoyed the views from your cabin deck... More

This spot had some great snorkeling. We saw 3 or 4 different types of fish (no clue what kind). We walked out on the abandoned bridge and saw 2 manta rays and a 4 to 5 foot long shark. Great time and only $10 for a car of 4.

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.

The Keys are not known for their beaches but this is a beach you would expect to find from pictures. White sandy beach to lay out on and miles of clear water to wade in. Sandbars to walk across and majority of the seaweed grass is further out in the ocean. Great place for photos and to spend a day... More

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.
