Changing Rooms June 2021

Loggerhead Bathhouse Changing Rooms

Why This Project?

The older temporary changing rooms were worn and not in proximity to the new bathhouse. A long term solution needed to be addressed to better facilitate park visitors.

Changing Rooms Cost

Labor & material to build 3, 4 x 5 outdoor changing rooms with tongue & groove boards and outswing doors. $4850

Project Completion and Details

 Thanks to your memberships, and donations made to the Friends of Bahia Honda State Park, we were able to contract with a local construction company to have new changing rooms built. Having these changing rooms just outside of the newly constructed Loggerhead Bathhouse, will assist in eliminating longer waits for restrooms during busy times which helps to meet the parks visitor service criteria. Thanks also to the Park Staff and Resident Volunteers who handled the installation of these units. 

Welcome to Bahia Honda State Park

On the way to Key West, Bahia Honda offers the awestruck traveler the chance to ask “do I need to travel any further?”

Quick History

Henry Flagler’s bold effort to build a railroad to Key West in the early 1900s turned the remote island of Bahia Honda Key into a tropical destination.

Known for its iconic Florida scenery—palm-lined beaches, gin-clear waters and magnificent sunsets—visitors to the park enjoy balmy sea breezes that caress the shores year-round. Kayaks and snorkeling gear can be rented and boat trips to the reef for snorkeling excursions are available.

The park is also an excellent place to observe wading birds and shorebirds, while the Sand and Sea Nature Center introduces nature lovers to the island’s plants and animals.

The concession service provider offers a complete gift shop, snack bar, kayak rentals and daily snorkeling tours to the fabulous Looe Key National Marine Sanctuary. The concessions are operated by the Coral Reef Park Co.
