The restroooms are always... More

We stayed on Anna Maria in August and enjoyed every minute of it. By far our favorite beach was Coquina. Gentle, lapping water, large beach with many shells. Went here every day going past many other beaches on the way.

This is a great place for runners. There are shaded areas, cleared paths, and water fountains, but most importantly a beautiful view. I felt a lot safer running in the park than I did along the roadways as many drivers appear to be distracted.

Coquina Beach is as equally as breath-taking as its neighbor to the north, Cortez Beach. I spent more time on latter, so will speak directly to it. However, Coquina Beach is very comparable. Cortez Beach is a VERY clean, family-oriented beach. Decent sized, in-tact conch shells can be found buried in the pale sands beneath the gentle chartreuse waves of... More
