Located across Gulf Drive (bayside as in the name) from the main entrance to Coquina Beach with its own entrance and parking. This is a pleasant walk with several short trails and attractive boardwalks through some mangroves and along the bay with some enjoyable views of the bay and intracoastal waterway. We enjoy a morning walk here to start our... More

We biked down the island till we got here, then got on the sidewalk at this beach which went on for a long way. We could see the beach but pedaled in the shade of evergreen trees. We got to below the Longboat Key bridge where we could see people fishing, then continued on our way up the other side... More

Makes a great walk on a cloudy, cooler day - and for birders, well, expect to find some birds. An easy walk with a lot of boardwalks.

This boardwalk is a terrific way to spend a relaxing half hour or so on Anna Maria Island. You'll see birds (not that many), crabs and possibly dolphins out in the ICW waters. It's easy to find (east side of the island opposite Coquina Beach Cafe), there's free parking, no entry fee and wonderful views.

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
