Bahia Honda

Inspiring, rejuvenating, breathless beauty, those are the words that come to mind when I think about Bahia Honda State Park in the Florida Keys. This time last week my toes were buried in the white sands of this park, a needed pit stop on the way to Key West. I’d been driving by this island park for years and never stopped before, I now realize that I’d been making a big mistake.

This episode of Island Lime Videos takes us to the shores of Bahia Honda, where the water is crystal clear, the coconut palms dancing gently in the sea breeze, and time slows to a conches pace. Enjoy the video and watch as the island slowly unfolds before your eyes.

About Bahia Honda State Park

Bahia Honda State Park was part of Henry Flagler’s East Coast Railway holdings. The railroad remains were converted into what is known today as U.S. Highway 1. Presently, the Old Bahia Honda Bridge serves as a reminder of Flagler’s dream. A section of the old bridge offers visitors a panoramic view of the island and surrounding waters. Since the initial acquisition of the first 13 acres of the park in 1961, Bahia Honda has become well-known as a recreational treasure.

Living History

Thousands of men worked on the railroad that was built above the water and islands from Miami to Key West. (Info from
