I visited Bahia Honda SP for the first time recently and was impressed by the beautiful white sand beaches, clear turquoise water, and exceedingly helpful staff. There are many possibilities for enjoying the out-of-doors (boating, swimming, fishing, camping, etc). Be aware however, the park is small and during the winter months you will likely share the park with many other... More

Too windy to do our original plan of kayaking around the island, but the walk was more than worth the park admission. Beautiful views all around and amazingly long beach to walk or just relax on. Surprisingly enough, we saw manatees in the harbor enjoying some of the sea grass near the main building.

Yet another Keys beach where you are sitting on top of a million other people. Stopped by for a quick dip, stepped on a bunch of spiky things in the sand trying to navigate around a catamaran on the beach, stepped on a bunch of spiky limestone trying to get into the water. Was a pretty walk from the parking... More

The park itself is wonderful, with walking paths, a lovely beach, a nature center, kayak rentals, etc., but what we really enjoyed the most was the snorkel trip. It is run by a private company within the park and the staff does a really nice job explaining everything in a clear and informative manner. The snorkeling equipment we rented was... More

We visited this park as we were specifically looking for a place which had many amenities and were looking for a snorkeling experience. Snorkeling for the first time, we were not sure what to expect, however the concessionier who provides the equipment rental and the excursion out to the reef has an informative, friendly staff able to answer questions and...

We stopped here and was pleasantly surprised. We like to snorkel and were not disappointed here. I would highly recommend this place. They do have camping, but it sounds nearly impossible to be able to get it, as you need to reserve way in advance. We found this place toward the end of our time in the keys but we... More

We stopped here on the way to key largo. Next time we may try Fort Zachary. The beach is narrow but clean with a few shells. It is very shallow so kids went out a little into water, played frisbee on the ocean side.
