An interior beach in Bahia Honda Park, Calusa has placid waters ideal for swimming, snorkeling, and kayaking. Beyond the white sand bars snaking out into the blue waters, an impressive visual at this beach is the historic Bahia Honda Bridge that seems to pop out of a collection of palm trees and stretch out to sea. Because of the incredibly calm waters, and ample picnic tables, this is a great choice for families looking for a day trip in the Florida Keys.
Key West International Airport is 45-minutes from Calusa Beach, which is best accessed with a rental car. You can fly direct into Key West from Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, Tampa, New York City, and Miami.
