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.

Great little nature walk...well-maintained boardwalk, informative bulletin boards to help you identify flora and fauna, really peaceful overlooks of the bay...the only problem we had was finding the place. From the official address (and google maps) it looked like it was yards away from our condo rental, the Coquina Moorings building, but it really wasn't. It was a quite a... More

Beautiful walk through mangroves with great views of the area. My two kids loved looking for wildlife which on our visit included a heron and a bunch of little crabs in the sand. Free activity and a nice way to spend an hour or so. A map of the trail would be nice as I wasn't sure how far in... More

This is a short but nice walk, that can be done by bike if wished. Tons of life everywhere. Birds, craps, stingrays and you have it. If you are into fishing there are good opportunities here. A few signs here and there would help, it is a little confusing finding your way on the trails.

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!
