  • Excellent Park for the Entire family. Two sides of a beach, nice calm marked off area for kids on one side with a smaller beach area and then on the other side you have a wide open beach option. Check the park website ahead of time to check the entrance fees. The park offers bathrooms with outside showers along with a store where you can find everything from made to order food, to drinks, to trinkets. Definitely worth taking a day to visit! Don’t forget them fishing rods because there’s plenty of places to throw a line in away from the beach goer’s.
  • Great location! You must go to the top of the Old Bahia Honda Bridge for sunrise! Gorgeous views! Nice beach area. There can be a good amount of seaweed because the beaches are not disturbed as it is a state park, so be prepared. Beautiful wildlife all around. Tuna sandwich was excellent!
