  • This beach is very clean, and not overcrowded at all. It is a state park, so you just pay a fee for the car to enter. There are tons of iguanas creeping around, which is always cool to see (at least f...  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.
  • 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.
