A little too much seaweed on the bridge side of the state park. Walk across the parking lot toward the rest rooms and you have a beautiful view and more swimming room. Great fishing near the bridge.

We snorkeled Looes reef which has many different coral, reef fish and a shark or 2. The group excursion on a comfortable multi hull boat took 40 minutes out to the reef, then we snorkeled 1.5 hours. Water temperature being 79 degrees made it worthwhile to rent the shortie wetsuit for$6. Having snorkeled several places before, we were surprised at... More

My husband and I have been going to the keys for nine years now. We stumbled on bahia honda during our first trip and have returned every single trip since. I don't have the words to describe the rugged natural beauty you will see there. The thing that always strikes us is the complete difference between the Atlantic side of... More

This is excellent wild beach. It is narrow, but quite long with beautiful views. You have a choice of going on the ocean side or bay side of the island. There are trails. There is also really old bridge. The trail leads almost to it, and the view from the top is spectacular.

The sand is white, the water is soo clear. There are walking trails and the beach has nice shower/restroom facilities. They have restrictions on pets... not allowing any dogs on the beach, and several other places which is mildly disappointing considering my small dog acts better than any toddler that was there. However it was nice, I think there is... More

New to Florida and visiting the Keys, we decided to check out state parks. We went here twice, once for the trails and beach and once for the sunset on the bridge. The state park was kept up and clean. We encourage everyone to go here. Make sure you look for the lighthouse, there is a small sign mentioning to... More

Easy to spend all day here. The beaches are amazing to snorkel. I've seen so many different fishes each time I go out. Old Rail bridge is postcard material. Camping is right next to the beach.....why wouldn't you?

We were hoping to go snorkelling, but due to the weather and sea conditions the visibility was horrendous, could not see the end of my nose, this is a seasonal place

We are not really camping people, so we stayed in the cabins (gulf side). I was pleasantly surprised. Fully equipped kitchen! Nice and clean. Very basic. No TV, much to my daughter's horror! The beds are full-sized, so sleeping six (two bedrooms, one sleeper sofa) would be a stretch. There were three of us and we all took separate beds.... More

We came to the park to check it out since it was so recommended. Talk about WOW views. You can see so far on a clear day. Beautiful beaches lots to do, you can rent kayaks. We did see a few people fishing. My favorite was walking up by the old train tracks that use to connect all the keys... More
