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

First, I have a couple of complaints about other reviews then on to the park. One person complained about a "fee" and that they've never seen this at other State Parks. You must never go to State Parks in Florida! ALL of the State Parks in Florida have a Admission fee. Second. The sea weed is a pain. I agree,... More

Bahia Honda... What can I say... It's the one spot in all the Keys that DEMANDS to be seen. I challenge anyone to not stare as they drive past, both coming and going. Do yourself a favor, stop here! Pay the fee! It is MORE than worth it! This will be the highlight of your entire trip! I love all... More

This beach was a real disappointment. The sea grass on the beach covered more area than the beach itself. The smell of sulfa from the decaying seagrass turned my stomach and the stomach of everyone with us. They charge you $10 for four people to use the grounds, but because of the smell we drove through the park and left... More
