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. ,Loggerhead Beach is now open on the Atlantic side with access available from both parking lots. 

Thank you,

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 https://smile.amazon.com/ 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! Make sure you download and use the Amazon Smile app to make future purchases.

Good News

During morning patrol Rangers witnessed what appeared to be courtship feeding among a flock of least terns at Sandspur day-use. While that doesn't guarantee they will nest there, it's a pretty good indicator. With that in mind, the tram tours will be modified immediately. Until we know for sure whether there is nesting activity at the day-use area, tram tours will stop at the Sandspur Campground exit, and visitors who disembark the tram will be allowed to walk to the right only and not in in the direction of the day-use area. It’s still a great tour!
Thanks for understanding.
