Key West isn't the only place you can see the "Green Flash". Be sure to watch the sunset and with some patience and if the conditions are right you will see the green flash at Coquina. The beach is clean, safe and big. Nice restrooms.

At least they have the shooting under control... depends on what part of the beach you go to and when. WE avoid this place like the crazy. Nice long beach - but after visitors come and leave all of their trash behind... what a mess. IF you don't live here you may just love to get in the water - locals avoid this place the best we can....

Although a bit hard to find, if you're not familiar with the area, this is a true gem. Coming from the north, it is immediately past the Bradenton Beach markers.
There are numerous picnic tables and pavilions with many grills nearby and a shower/restroom station near the entrance. No plastic bags are allowed, nor any alcoholic beverages or glass. Police patrol the area and it is a quiet spot to enjoy: the water is beautiful and nice breezes keep you cool. A true hidden gem!

Beaches I've visited all across America are great, some better than others. This beach was very nice, why?
1. the beach was close to parking
2. lots of trees in and near the parking area
3. picnic tables in the trees (shaded) but within feet of the beach
4. enough parking
5. it wasn't too crowded just a few days before the 4th of July
6. noticed some provided charcoal grills but we used our own portable grill

Sure I'll go back there. It's a nice place.
