“Uncrowded Paradise”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

We spend each morning of our visit to the Sun Coast at Coquina Beach, setting up near the snack bar (we miss the old pink building) and enjoying coffee, reading, dolphin and people watching. This beautiful beach has plenty of nearby parking and wonderful facilities, including a new rest room with modern fixtures. The upgraded shop and snack bar are inviting and the prices quite reasonable. We love the spot and truly enjoy starting each day there.

“Great beach!”
Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

Been going here since I was a kid. They've upgraded a lot. It's clean and well maintained. One of the best kept secrets in Florida. Great public beach!

“Hours in the water here!”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

The beach was really nice, the water was amazing! We spent HOURS just floating, talking, watching the parasailers, found shells and sand dollars. i could have stayed there forever!!! There is no charge to park, very low key and quiet. Picnic tables under shade trees in the parking area. Public restrooms. NO lifeguard though, but when we were there the water was as smooth as glass and no under tow or currents. Very friendly people (the locals) willing to talk and tell you all about their amazing community.

“Best beach on the island”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Anna Maria island off the coast of Bradenton Florida is really a collection of several beach communities. Most tourist flock to Bradenton Beach and Holmes Beach. Holmes is usually crowed and Bradenton got beat up in the spring storm of 2013. Just drive about a mile south on the beach road and stop at Coquina Beach. Beautiful, white sand and plenty of it. Facilities are newly renovated. Very clean. Go to the extreme south end. You will find the dream beach you came there for.
