    Blue Skies and Beaches

    by Agnessa Written Jul 26, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Bahia Honda State Park is located on Bahia Honda Key between Mile Marker 36 and 37.
    BH is unique among other islands in the Keys because it has extensive sandy beaches and deep waters close enough offshore to provide exceptional swimming and snorkeling.

    The Butterfly Garden

    2 Zebras

    Favorite thing: Bahia Honda is a pretty park for a break from the hectic traffic driving down to Key West too, perfect for a picnic, or just to stretch your legs. Take the time to stroll through the Butterfly Garden, and see some lovely flowers along with the colorful butterflies. I was delighted to catch these two Zebras touching wingtips while I was walking through the garden last winter (for any of you who've seen my Grand Cayman page, you know I do love to click on these bugs!)

    Walking around the park

    Lovers On The Bridge

    Favorite thing: There are 2 bridges, the new one on which everyone now drives, and the old Seven Mile Bridge, which has been cut off but left in various places for park use. Don't think this bridge will lead you anywhere very far...

    Bahia Honda Sailboat

    Favorite thing: Bahia Honda also has a deep water channel between the bridges, deep enough for fairly large sailboats to navigate. If you are looking for a marina to dock overnight, this link may help you find what you need: http://www.cruisingguide.com/flkmarinas.html

    Kayak, swim, or just walk around...

    Rent a kayak to explore

    Favorite thing: There's not much in the way of snorkeling at the park itself. However, it does boast one of the best swimming beaches in the Keys, and you can also rent kayaks in the park to go exploring the little mangrove islets that abound throughout the Keys. There are clean restroom facilities, and showers for swimmers.

    Snorkeling

    Favorite thing: This is one of the jumping off spots for a tour to take you snorkeling at Looe Key Reef, 12 miles offshore in the Florida National Marine Sanctuary. Here's a link for more information about the Marine Sanctuary: http://www.fknms.nos.noaa.gov/visitor_information/welcome.html

    Take mucho film!!

    Favorite thing: There were Manates swimming with us, and I really would like to camp here sometime. You can camp right on the island. The views are wonderful and so peaceful here.
