  • Would be a nice place but was probably still kinda devastated after the last hurricane season. Good stop for a bath on the way. Cost entry.

  • Stopped here on the way from Key Largo to Key West to give teenage girls something to do. It's a small beach by the main facilities, but water is very pretty & sand very white. Girls enjoyed some sunb...  more »
  • The entire ocean side was closed due to damage from hurricane Irma. The bridge was neat to walk up on & get some great pics. Beach side was very clean & family friendly. Hope to return one day & see t...  more »

  • Being a native Floridian, this is one of the best beaches I’ve been to here. I came before Hurricane Irma last summer so I was lucky to see it before any damage. We stayed in the water at least all day! It’s awesome because it does not get deep due to the sand bars. Just absolutely beautiful and peaceful. I will be back again someday! *no one pays me for reviews- all of my reviews are real and straight up*
  • Beautiful park. Great views from any point of the island. You can rent a lot and camp out or bring your RV. Nothing better then waking up, taking a few steps from the lot, and having your feet in the water. You can bring your own snorkel gear or rent gear to snorkel from the shop. Small Beach area to lay out if you wanted to. Over all great place to visit.
  • Most of the park is still closed after Irma. There is a tiny beach still open on the gulf side. No snorkeling trips right now because the boat is broke down, but you can snorkel from the beach. No kayak rental right now I'm not sure why. You can walk up on the old bridge to look off but not worth the $9 to get in right now. Once they get it all open again it will be worth it. It's beautiful!
  • This summer, June, will be our fourth year camping at Bahia Honda State Park. We camp on the side without electricity, but the bonus is that we are on the water and can stay up fishing and park our boat at the camp site. We bring bicycles to ride to the showers, and beach. The beaches at Bahia Honda are,by far, the best in the Florida Keys. As a bonus, Bahia Honda offers snorkeling tours at two popular reefs for less than $30 per person. We spend our week grilling out, fishing, swimming and snorkeling. There is no place I'd rather be!
  • Beach lovers paradise. Spectacular teal colored waters, tropical breezes. At least one beach and it's camping area have been restored post hurricane. Full service shop with snacks, rentals and marina are operational. Camp sites are nearly on the ocean.Clean restrooms and caring staff complete the experience. Come on down.
