Good beach for kayaking to see critters! Bad for swimming, fresh water showers, half the price of kayaking at JPennekamp and wayyyy more fun because no motorized boats makes it more relaxing and the clear water let us see all sorts of animals. Well worth it. We got salads to go from Spanish gardens on the way back to our... More

We loved everything about this place. Very clean and spacious campground. Hosts and staff are constantly taking care of this place. The bath house is large and offers a dish washing area. Sites are very large too. The beach is smaller, and works if you don't want to travel to go to a better one. The kayaking is fun and... More

A nice beach to go sit in the sun or walk you dog, but typical keys with lots of sea grass and rocky shallows.

Unfortunately the hiking trail was on the other side of the highway and we never made the trek, but toured the beach and campground areas. It is dog friendly but not on the beach or water. The bathrooms were spotless. There were ample covered picnic areas, kayak and SUP rentals available, and the campground was immaculate and not full (although... More

We rented kayaks and paddle boards here. There is a loop to kayak around the island but be warned - it is not passable at low tide. There was a large sandbar that is an easy paddle. We saw stingrays and lots of starfish out there. You are charged an entry fee plus rental fees for a 2 hour rental.... More

We visited the park for a relaxing afternoon. We took a kayak trip around the island and ended up in a beautiful bay. It was great to see the large jellyfish, sea turtles and other wildlife in the area. Trip takes about 2 hours. The park was clean but did not check out anything else. It is a little expensive...

We visited the park one afternoon. Not much to see on the trails and two of the structures were not allowing visitors. We found the park expensive for the few experiences available.

We stayed there for a week and it was amazing. The beach is small but perfect. The kayaking was great and the people that take care of the place are very nice and attentive.

I spent a few days working my way down the Keys, and Curry Hammock was the best tent camping experience i had. I didn't get into everywhere mind you, (especially since Bahia Honda fills months in advance) but it was the best of the three locations i spent a night in. Not many spaces and lots of seclusion from the... More

Cool park - we were able to kayak through a neat mangrove tunnel and under a small bridge. (Beware, there is a section which can only be kayaked through during high tide.) We saw many critters, birds, and a huge turtle! There is also a sandbar you can kayak to, which in low tide, is incredible. There is also a... More
