This is such a great park and beach that we would like to keep it to ourselves. Long sweeps of sand. Shallow, clear water. Excellent gift shop. Snack bar is just fine.

Bahia Honda State Park is home to a wonderful beach. This is not the kind of beach like you would experience in Miami; rather it is a beach for those who appreciate nature. It is a place to walk and wade, to bird watch, to butterfly watch. It is a place you can swim, though to me that is not... More

We have been to this State Park before and loved it the first time. We wanted to come back to enjoy again. Very sad and disappointed to see all the ugly brown sea grass on both the Atlantic beach and the Gulf side beach. We saw signs posted that it is for the Wild birds that the sea grass is... More

It was almost deserted when we went In January ( we were also there on a weekday). The weather was perfect and... More

This park is spectacular! We love to kayak or just enjoy the beach and water. There are RV spots. They also have a snack bar and gift shop. If you don't have your own kayak, you can rent one here. LOVE this place!

Knew going into the keys that there aren't many beaches, but saw this was consistently rated the best in the keys so made plans to stop on a day we didn't have much going on. Park and beaches were smaller than expected. Although in a great setting, both beaches on the bay and Atlantic side are covered in sea grass... More
