Silver Palm Nature Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"In the Keys sandy beaches are as rare as winning lottery tickets, but 524-acre Bahia Honda State Park enjoys what is considered to be one of the finest beaches in the nation. Bahia Honda, Florida’s southernmost state park, contains a natural environment found nowhere else in the continental United States.

This 0.5-mile, twenty-minute loop walk leads into a mangrove area, over a dune, and down onto the beach. It’s mostly open, so wear a hat and sunglasses. In more than a dozen places, the trail is marked with numbered posts explaining the landscape; be sure to obtain the trail guide available at the entrance station."

"In the Keys, sandy beaches are as rare as winning lottery tickets but Bahia Honda State Park enjoys what is considered to be one of the finest beaches in the nation. Bahia Honda (Spanish for “Deep Bay”) is the state’s southernmost park and as such it contains a natural environment found nowhere else in the continental US Mangrove forest, beach dune, tropical hardwood hammock, and coastal berm communities all are found here. Many of the resident animals and plants have a Caribbean origin, which makes this a truly unusual ecosystem.

Furthermore, the bird life is quite varied: roseate spoonbills, great white herons, white-crowned pigeons, reddish egrets, and least terns are frequently sighted. Special Attractions: Rental kayaks, snorkeling, swimming, and fishing, in addition to the two beaches. This park is very crowded on weekends and people are often turned away after 10 A.M. on weekends."
