Dear Friends, 

Hurricane Irma severely impacted our beloved Bahia Honda State Park. If you wish to help in the rebuilding, please consider a donation via the donate buttons on our various tabs. Calusa and Loggerhead Beaches are now OPEN with access available from both parking lots.  Come ride the 7 passenger Sandspur Trolley to the closed part of the park for a $5 donation to walk and wade at Sandspur Beach, leaving the Nature Center most days at 10A, 11A, 12:30P, 1:30P. Sign up in front of the Nature Center. See a review on Trip Advisor.

Thank You, See You at The Park!

Help with the Healing and Rebuilding

As many of us are pondering the future of Bahia Honda State Park, let us take this viewpoint into consideration. If we continue to view things as they used to be we will forever remain saddened that they are not the same. If we look at this as a new beginning we can all witness its regrowth and restoration and become a part of its future. Bahia Honda has endured hurricanes since its rise from the sea, it will recover and prosper, and so shall we.

We know many of you are wondering what is happening at Bahia Honda State Park. The Friends group wanted to share some insight to what has taken place at Bahia Honda and what’s to come. A lot of progress is already underway with groups of contractors and park staff working every day. There is a lot to do.

Since reopening last fall, we’ve made great strides to improve access to more areas and services in the park and its marina. Portions of the park will not be accessible to guests while clean-up and rebuilding continue. Calusa Beach, the Marina and Loggerhead Beach are all now open so we can enjoy the Atlantic side!

We also wanted to provide some photos so you can see what happened and continue to see the progress being made. Feel free to visit The Friends of Bahia Honda’s Facebook page to see the latest updates.

The Friends of Bahia Honda welcome your donations to help us rebuild. Every penny stays right here at the park and will be used for improvements and restoration. Please consider donating what you can. Every dollar will make a difference. Another easy way to support Bahia Honda is to go to Amazon Smile and select The Friends of Bahia Honda to be your charity. The link is Amazon Smile donates 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charity you select. This is a great start to helping the Friends help the park and costs nothing!
