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.

One of the most beautiful beaches around but very crowded most of the time except at extreme times of the day!! I guess it is just popular!! Try a more secluded beach access if you need more peace and quiet!

Coquina beach is the perfect beach to visit when you are looking for a beautiful clean beach to relax! The sand is white and there are a lot of pine trees that offer shade. There are dressingrooms, toilets and showers. The parking is free and there are some shops nearby.
