My family and I enjoyed the Coquina Baywalk very much. The trail, boardwalks and the lookouts were all very well done. The wildlife is everywhere. The parking was free and available. The walk starts within steps of the parking lot.

This was a great nature walk, the fish hatchery, the baby crabs, the blue heron nesting in the foliage was fabulous. The salt flat was very interesting too. We really enjoyed this area - the pine trees by the beach were so breathtaking.

Very reaxing stroll. Lots of shady areas. Great view of bays, and birds, and jumping fish. Dont step on the little crabs. All the sites of the mangrove kayak without all the work!

My husband and I wanted to get out for a quick walk while dinner was cooking... we decided to give Leffis Key a whirl and we were both pleasantly surprised! Nice boardwalks and lookout docks/points. Mangroves full of neat little creatures. Very relaxing!

Just when I thought this was going to be a short little walk it turned out to be a really cool, well-maintained area with a lot of walkways built throughout the area that took you to different overlooks of the bay. There are benches to sit on along the way. You're very much out in nature, though, so take note... More

Hill in the inner part of the park is a good place for watching the sunset. Pathways take you to great views of Sarasota bay. Take some bug spray with you cause they are bad at times.

I have spent many hours walking the beaches of Anna Maria Island, but until recently, I was unaware of this delightful walking area along the bay. How heartening to know that this island has made this wonderful walking trail!

Great place to take a nature walk. Free parking and free entrance. It is all natural with various areas. A must see on Anna Maria Island. Then go across the street and enjoy Coquina Beach - one of the top 10 beaches in the world.
