2020.12.27 The Florida Keys

    The Florida Keys consists of 44 Islands and 42 Bridges. The Seven Mile Bridge (actually 6.79 miles long) is one of the longest segmental bridges in the world. The Keys are divided into five regions: Key Largo, Islamorada, Marathon, Big Pine/Lower Keys, and Key West. We have visited the Bahia Honda State Park, an island in the lower Florida Keys. The park occupies most of the island, is virtually uninhabited and has the best beaches in the Keys. In 2017, Hurricane Irma wiped out the Sandspur Beach and destroyed the Sandspur campground which is still closed today. There are two pretty nice beaches left: Calusa Beach and Loggerhead Beach. This Park is very popular place for snorkeling and kayaking.
