This is a relaxing stroll through a tropical setting. You may even see fish, birds, and manatee. My kids loved the scenery.

Go during cooler part of the day! I spotted a blue crab in the water. We saw many Mangrove Crabs which are creepy but cool to see!

This is a beautiful short nature walk on the southwest side of the island. The walk begins on a shell path and then becomes boardwalk. Part of the walk is in thick mangroves. We were not lucky with our wildlife search. At one point on the path you are high enough to see the bay on one side and the... More

I am an area native that moved away many years ago because of work. My family still has a small place on Anna Maria that we visit each summer, but we've never visited the boardwalk area because it's usually too hot and buggy. This year with our kids off to college, we came a month early and brought our 2-man... More

We enjoyed our walk through the mangrove tunnels. It was a quiet and relaxing time. We saw different species of Herons and other birds. The boardwalk was well designed and maintained. The educational signage was informative and highlighted the importance of mangroves for birds and fish.

No charge for parking and the trolley stops right at the entrance. Squirrels will chase you for food but don't come too close. Must visit while on the island.

This is a lovely walk. It is very easy yet very scenic. It is quiet and a nice escape from the beach.

Short and easy nature walk along boardwalk with bay, bridge and Cortez views. Some wild and sea life and quiet setting for a nice 1 hour diversion. Across the street from Coquina Beach with plenty of parking.

I've always preferred a great beach with some palms close enough to provide some shade when needed. This venue has both features plus picnic tables, and a great little café with gorgeous views of the gulf and reasonably priced food - outdoor seating only. On weekends they have a flea market and entertainment. Enough space on the beach for couples... More
