Tons of parking, beautiful white sand and a long stretch of beach make this beach an ideal spot when exploring the areas. What really put it over the top for me was the abundance of these "changing shacks" and a cool playground. So simple - why don't more beaches have these changing shacks? They're dotted along the parking lot, wooden... More

We really enjoy this beach in many ways. It has it all. They have public bathrooms and changing areas with a lot of amble FREE parking. They also have beach store and luncheonette on the back side of the beach. They also server liquor! There is a lifeguard stand for safety. They have many benches and grills for a full... More

Beautiful and tranquil beach. Free parking and free beach. They have a few changing booths and showers to rinse off the sand. We even saw a couple of dolphins. A nice place to relax and enjoy the beach.

This is a beautiful beach with great facilities especially the diner in the middle. The food is fantastic, the folks are welcoming and the prices are good. We loved the chilli cheese fries with bacon. Highly recommended.

While visiting Disney this year, we opted for a beach day and wanted something different. So we headed to the West coast and particularly, Coquina beach. We went on a Saturday, which I thought would be a disaster, because of huge crowds on a 95 degree day. It was just the opposite! First of all, we were greeted with FREE... More

Nice beach to just go and enjoy the ocean. The water is green blue, and the sand is white. Fun time for a Sunday trip with your kids

Wow this beach is beautiful. Would even make the 2hr 20 min drive from home to see it when it's sunny. Lifeguard towers are a comforting sight. Only negative - parking lots flooded on rainy days but I guess that's not a huge deal as no one was visiting anyway!

Love this beach - been to a number on both sides of Florida and this is my favourite. The beach is clean and tidy with the water being the same. Regularly see Dolphins and some times Manatees in the sea. Lifeguards on duty along the beach and the is a market on Sunday's. There is also a cafe in the... More

Visited this beach just to check it out. We ended up going parasailing and seeing several large manatees. Beach was gorgeous, water clean and clear, sand clean. Loved it!
