Bahia Honda State Park
Welcome to Bahia Honda State Park
Bahia Honda is still recovering from Hurricane Irma and some amenities are not available yet. We are working daily to restore this beautiful island. Please click on the activity or amenity to view details. Thank you for your support and patience.
Henry Flagler's railroad to Key West turned the remote island of Bahia Honda Key into a tropical destination. Today, the island is home to one of Florida's southernmost state parks, known for beautiful beaches, magnificent sunsets and excellent snorkeling. Visitors can picnic on the beach, take a swim, or relax and enjoy the balmy sea breezes that caress the shores year-round. Anglers can fish from shore or bring a boat and launch at the boat ramp. Kayaks, and snorkeling gear can be rented and boat trips to the reef for a snorkeling excursion are available. Bahia Honda is an excellent place to see wading birds and shorebirds, while the Sand and Sea Nature Center introduces nature lovers to the island's plants and animals.
