Beautiful silky white sand beach. Very clean and relaxing day spent on the beach. Sunset is one of the most beuatiful I have seen on the west coast of Florida. Spectacular.

As an animal lover this was great. They all came down from their trees right up to me, so friendly and I hand fed them nuts. I had a hard time finding Unsalted Roasted nuts, but eventually found them at Win Dixie on Cortez Rd. The raw ones we got where not safe for them to eat without cooking first.

Both of my boys have had their first beach experiences here at Coquina Beach. The sand isn't as lovely as it is on some other parts of the island, but it is super silky by the dunes (great photo ops). There are picnicking areas, too, and some shady spots. There are places to change, a playset, and the nature preserve... More

A hidden gem nestled away on the south side of Anna Maria Island (and just north of Longboat Key). The weekends tend to get crowded, but on weekdays, the beach is practically private.

This is a really pretty beach with beautiful sand. it can get pretty busy on the weekends so head out early of the bridge backs up sometimes all the way to town. A lot of families come out here with their kids and picnic during the day. There is also a nice firework show on the 4th of July. Beautiful... More

Coquina Beach is a very beautiful beach. The turquoise water invites you to come swim and play with the fish, dolphins, and manatees, The only thing I don't like is the long walk in te sand to the water, which is tough on my bad back but it isn't too bad once you find a spot. The restroooms are always... More
