Everything about this beach is great. White sand that is perfectly manicured, easy and abundant parking, clean restrooms and a nice snack stand. Also, loads of grills and tables for picnicking. Finally, easy spot for surf fishing at the pass.

Went to Coquina Beach on Christmas Day with my wife and her brother and his wife. Had a nice stroll. Beach runs for several miles and is quite nice.

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.
