Nice flat walk that is good for all types of walkers. Wide path so that dogs can pass each other with out a fuss. Water views are beautiful. Do be sure to take water as this is not available anywhere except and the very beginning.

Great place for a lovely walk with a dog and a teenager. Wide accommodating paths that went farther than we expected with multiple trail head accesses. Great views of the lagoon with tons of donated benches to easily grab a seat and soak in nature.

We had a nice hike in Batiquitos Lagoon in December. I would like to mention that the bathroom is available in the visitor center during their open hours. It was quiet and peaceful.

The lagoon borders the golf course and has a nice dirt trail that is easy to walk on, even for those who use a cane or walking sticks. Plenty of well-behaved dogs add to the experience.

The walking paths, that hug the shore of the lagoon, are about a couple of miles to the end and back. Waterfowl can be seen, and there are interesting plants. Locals come here often to walk, jog, etc. A great way to spend a couple...More
