I love Bahia Honda. It's beautiful. HOWEVER, the whole oceanside is completely closed off due to hurriance damage. Calusa Beach is open. It's a small beach with about 2 covered shelters and a few picnic tables. Bring a large umbrella and/or some sort of sunshelter...More

Calusa is an interior beach in Bahia Honda park so has much calmer water than the ocean side of the park. Right now, only Calusa is open in the park due to extensive storm damage from hurricane Irma. Limited camping. Beach has some build up...More

Lot's of people go to Bahia Honda and think this is the only beach available. While Calusa is very scenic, it is also very small and most times crowded. Plan to explore the park and check out Sandspur beach as well.

Most folks will not even know they're getting bite by the no-see-ums (until the next day). The park sells a spray which may help with the "no-see-ums" (think it's called "no-gnats"). Calusa Beach is a decent beach. It's not my favorite at Bahia Honda. Still...More

Not my favorite beach in Bahia Honda, but great on a windy day or with small children. Beautiful views of the bridge. Right next to the concession area.
