What to do in Bahia Honda State Park
Snorkeling, swimming, fishing, camping (80 sites), bayside cabins (6) and access to two boat ramps make Bahia Honda an outstanding recreational opportunity. Snorkeling is a favorite and scuba diving is permitted but not recommended in the shallow waters. Wind surfing is popular as well. Special events include Earth Day (April), Hawk Watch (October), and year-round ranger-led tours. Location
