Welcome to Bahia Honda State Park
On the way to Key West, Bahia Honda offers the awestruck traveler the chance to ask “do I need to travel any farther?”
Henry Flagler’s bold effort to build a railroad to Key West in the early 1900s turned the remote island of Bahia Honda Key into a tropical destination.
Along with its iconic Florida scenery — palm-lined beaches, gin-clear waters and magnificent sunsets — the park is known for balmy sea breezes that caress the shores year-round. Kayaks and snorkeling gear can be rented, and boat trips to the reef for snorkeling excursions are available.
The park is an excellent place to observe wading birds and shorebirds, and introduces nature lovers to the island’s plants and animals.
