this is a nice little walk through the mangroves. We went on a sunny day but windy would be nice to go when the weather was a little warmer and take a lunch.

This is a great spot with lots of beach to walk, a little restaurant, bathrooms, and plenty of parking. The boardwalk is well-maintained and offers some lovely views along the way.

I discovered this beach at the southern part of Anna Maria Island and it's nice and secluded, yet very open. Great stretch of sand and the great powdery kind. Nice walking/biking path and nice stand of pines to block the beach from the road. Plenty of parking right off the road. I will definitely return there as much as I... More

We visited on December 27 2014 and it was a beautiful day. The wildlife was amazing and we saw swarms of fiddler crabs, black crabs in the trees, racoon prints, 20 or so buzzards and osprey catching fish. Keep left and make sure you go down each boardwalk to the water and you will end up at the hill. Go... More

We had an hour or so before meeting friends at Mote Marine so we stopped here to stretch our legs. There was a ton of local wildlife (crabs, fish, birds, weird spiders, etc.) and a very serene setting. Well maintained trails, though signage indicating trails and length would be nice. I really enjoyed our time here and it was totally... More

coquina beech is my favorite place to hang. Lovely beech and not over commercialized. On the east side of the park is the bay walk which is nice but not very long. Its fine for a little distraction or something other than walking the beech, but it is a little short. Nothing wrong with the walk though.

We had read several reviews of the Baywalk and it sounded like a good place to see wildlife. We walked the wooden planks and stopped at many of the overlooks and never saw anything but some fish. It probably depends on the time of day/time of the year etc. but we got bored pretty quickly. However it was a nice... More

This was a nice surprise. We wanted a short outing and this nature walk was perfect. There are boardwalks through the mangroves that lead to piers that let you look out over Sarasota Bay. We were able to watch a group of dolphins for quite a while from one of the piers.
