Bahia Honda State Park
Marathon, Florida, United States of America
Although not known for having beaches, the Florida Keys have one hidden little gem. Set at mile marker 37, about 15 minutes from Marathon, is Bahia Honda State Park, an award winning beach and one of the few natural beaches in the Keys.
Pack a picnic and head down there for the day. Enjoy paddling in the waters of the Atlantic ocean and Florida gulf. Hire a kayak and paddle the turquoise waters, go on a snorkelling tour to the fabulous Looe Key Marine Sanctuary or beachcombing along the sands.
The beach offers a cafe and concession stands and is open to all and can be busy at weekends in particular.
