There are lots of beautiful places to snorkel in Florida, but Bahia Honda State Park has to be one of the best. Often described as an island paradise, the park, which encompasses over 500 acres and an offshore island, is home to one of the most stunning reefs in the state. Under the sea, you’ll also have encounters with the region’s tropical fish, plentiful Elkhorn and spectacular Star coral. If you’d rather stay above water, why not hire a kayak, join a fishing trip, or visit the on-site Sand and Sea Nature Center to admire the region’s plants and wildlife at your own pace.
When you’re not exploring the waters here, you’ll want to sit back and take in the simple pleasures of the beach. Ranked by many as one of the best in the world, it’s the main attraction to draw visitors here. The water is crystal clear and the clean white sands soft to touch. Picnic areas and amenities, such as showers and bathrooms, are also available on the beach, making it convenient for an all-day stay.
