Bahia Honda State Park (Calusa beach and Bahia Honda Rail Bridge), Big Pine Key, Florida (USA)
Bahia Honda is one of the many islands of the Florida Keys archipelago, a chain of coral islands and reefs in the southeastern United States.
U.S. 1 (the Overseas Highway) crosses the key at approximately mile markers 36-38.5, between Ohio Key and Spanish Harbor Key 12 miles (19 km) west of Marathon, close to the west end of the Seven Mile Bridge.
The island is virtually uninhabited, being home to the 524-acre (2.12 km2) Bahia Honda State Park. Founded in 1961, the park occupies most of the island. The channel at the island's west end is one of the deepest natural channels in the Florida Keys.
The park is 212 hectares and offers 4 km of beautiful sandy beaches, including Calusa Beach on the Gulf of Mexico and Sandspur Beach on the Atlantic Ocean. With these two beaches, Bahia Honda State Park offers the most beautiful beaches in the entire Florida Keys.
The beach or rather the view here is actually the highlight of the Bahia Honda State Park. In the shade of the large palm trees you enjoy the view of the beautiful white sand beach, the old railway bridge of the Flagler Oversea Railroad, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Bahia Honda Bridge of the Oversea Highway.
The Overseas Railroad (also known as Florida Overseas Railroad, the Overseas Extension, and Flagler's Folly) was an extension of the Florida East Coast Railway to Key West, a city located 128 miles (204.8 km) beyond the end of the Florida peninsula. Work on the line started in 1905 and it operated from 1912 to 1935, when it was partially destroyed by the Labor Day Hurricane.
In Bahia Honda State Park there are also changing facilities and sanitary facilities at Calusa Beach. The usual barbecue facilities for the USA are available as well.

The BPKFL has several lodging options to choose from including motel rooms, rustic campsites, electric/water RV sites and even waterfront sites. With a boat ramp and canals, you can put your boat in the water (and leave it in the water) during your stay. This idea of “boat-side” camping gives you the freedom to jump in your boat and go when the mood strikes.
Our 2000 square foot camp store is stocked with everything you need to be comfortable at camp and out on the water. This includes food, beverages and snacks plus fishing and marine supplies like marine gas, bait and basic water sports equipment. We are one of the few campgrounds in the area where you can come with an empty cooler and get everything you need right on property.
Recreation is a big part of life in the Florida Keys and at the BPKFL we have the facilities to help you make the most of your vacation. Play ping-pong, take a long walk on the beach or just relax under a palm tree; do as much or as little as you care to do. From our 25,000 gallon roof top pool to our calendar of parties and planned activities, BPKFL has something for visitors of all ages.
If you need anything at all, please call our office at 305-872-2351 or complete our contact form and a member of the Big Pine Key Fishing Lodge will return your call within 24 hours. Whether this is your first visit to BPKFL or your fiftieth, we look forward to sharing out little slice of paradise with you.

Some sizable sharks under the bridge, Bahia Honda State Park, Big Pine Key, FL
I think they're lemons, blacktips or bulls but I'm not sure. I'm not a biologist. They look much smaller than they were, the bridge is high. I'd say some of these sharks were around 8-10 feet long. I was snorkeling just yards from them and didn't realize it until we went onto the bridge and looked down. SORRY ABOUT MY FINGER ruining the view.

Florida Keys - Drive through Big Pine Key, Bahia Honda and Marathon HD (2016)
The Florida Keys are a coral cay archipelago located off the southern coast of Florida, forming the southernmost portion of the continental United States. They begin at the southeastern coast of the Florida peninsula, about 15 miles (24 km) south of Miami, and extend in a gentle arc south-southwest and then westward to Key West, the westernmost of the inhabited islands, and on to the uninhabited Dry Tortugas. The islands lie along the Florida Straits, dividing the Atlantic Ocean to the east from the Gulf of Mexico to the northwest, and defining one edge of Florida Bay. At the nearest point, the southern part of Key West is just 90 miles (140 km) from Cuba. The Florida Keys are between about 23.5 and 25.5 degrees North latitude.
The climate of the Keys is defined as tropical savanna according to Köppen climate classification. More than 95 percent of the land area lies in Monroe County, but a small portion extends northeast into Miami-Dade County, such as Totten Key. The total land area is 137.3 square miles (356 km2). As of the 2010 census the population was 73,090 with an average density of 532.34 per square mile (205.54/km2), although much of the population is concentrated in a few areas of much higher density, such as the city of Key West, which has 32% of the entire population of the Keys. The US Census population estimate for 2014 is 77,136.
The city of Key West is the county seat of Monroe County. The county consists of a section on the mainland which is almost entirely in Everglades National Park, and the Keys islands from Key Largo to the Dry Tortugas.
FIESTA KEY RV PARK AND RESORT: THE PERFECT TROPICAL CAMPGROUND FOR MOTORCYCLES
We stayed on the Island of Fiesta Key which worked out great being about half of the way down to Key West. Not as far to pull a camper and a good distance to ride the Motorcycle the rest of the way.
Located North of Seven Mile Bridge, it is the perfect place to unload your toy hauler and ride to Key West!
