We have visited Anna Maria Island and the surrounding areas countless number of times and yet somehow we had missed this almost hidden quiet little spot. The Coquina Bay Walk at Leffis Key is a small preservation area but it has very nice walking trails, boardwalks, it is quiet, relaxing, and has great views of the bay! We really enjoyed... More

We did the Baywalk in the morning and there were just a few other people there. The walking trails are nice and easy and there are several points to see beautiful bay views. We saw birds in trees and enjoyed the quiet, peaceful aspect of the trails. Spent almost an hour there and then went to the Joan Durante Park... More

Coquina beach is a beautiful beach where the free shuttle took us to. The beach was very clean and a restaurant was on the beach where you could eat and not worry about being in your beach wear.

Stoped by while in casa del mar our usual resistance when we visit the area for photography safari. Realy enjoyable place to walk. Many pleasant suprises await your visit here.Birds and wildlife in their natural surroundings, you will find as you stroll the winding board walk. Keep a close eye for many surprises.

This is a very peaceful walk and while signs posted give you information re wildlife and the mangroves, if you get there early enough you may see wildlife for yourself. It is a very easy walk for all ages and if you go on the weekend the Coquina market is right across the street.

Maps are confusing on how to get here. This is at the southern end of the island on the east side on Leffis Key. Just park and follow the trails thru lush vegetation onto board walks and up to a hill top view.

What is there to not like with free? It is a small park that can be easily walked. I loved all of the board walks and the mangroves. My husband and I took it at a nice slow pace. It is easy walking on board walks and sand / dirt trails.

What a beautiful place to watch the sunrise among native grasses and a beautiful waterfront. Early in e day parking is plentiful and it is an easy drive from the north end of the island or use the free island trolley later in the day. The island is very narrow at this point so you can easily walk across the... More

Very few things beat the beauty of nature. I'm glad Florida has done a good job preserving parts of its beautiful coastline.
