Bahia Honda State Park


It was just another island until Henry Flagler’s railroad connected the mainland to Key West. Even though the railroad is gone, Bahia Honda became one of the southernmost state parks in America. If you stop before reaching Key West—a little more than a half hour away—you’ll find camping (full-facility campsites and vacation cabins), fishing, diving, snorkeling, hiking, kayaking, and one of the country’s top beaches.

Snap photos of Flagler’s historic railroad trestle, and enjoy the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico views. Relax on the beach; take a swim in the calm, clear water; explore the nature trail; or picnic in one of the pavilions. For a few hours or a few days, the park has year-round appeal.
