  • We waited and drove around for an hour before giving up and going home. The road in is backed up for miles and there is no parking spaces.

  • Amazing beach and facilities but our family was coughing from the red tide. It started when we crossed onto the island. We didn't know why we were coughing at first but then a local told us.

  • A favorite beach! Less crowded, and we often see dolphins there. They seen to enjoy swimming in the inlet and under the bridge way down at the end of the beach by the jetty, which is our favorite part of this beach. The shelling isn't great, but we occasionally find some nice ones. (It's the same for the other Anna Maria Island beaches too - these aren't shelling beaches.) The Coquina Beach Market is currently from 10-4 on Sundays and Wednesdays, but the days change depending on the time of year. It's very nice with a variety of vendors. We enjoy it! The main part of Coquina Beach has a Cafe, and at times you can enjoy some live entertainment. There is a Little Free Library, and there are also changing rooms, showers and restrooms. Sunsets are gorgeous!
  • Stunning area! The area near the bridge is Just to Beautiful relaxing spot to relax and watch for dolphins, the beach near the bridge has a no swimming sign, the main beach is absolutely beautiful. Great are with Picnic tables,walking paths, bathrooms, RV parking.
  • A really great white sand beach with sand as fine as powder. The water here is also very clear and it goes slowly and shallowly into the sea. During the week there is almost nothing going on here, there are a lot of free parking spaces (many of them even in the shade). In addition, there is a public toilet, changing rooms and the beach section is guarded by lifeguards.
  • We live in the area and Coquina Beach is by far our favorite. They have awesome trees that you can enjoy the much needed shade. Plus it has such a lovely nature aspect to the beach you can't get on the other beaches. We filmed an episode of our show there last year. It was during the winter so the beach was pretty empty. Take a peek... and enjoy our pictures. Visit this beach ASAP you won't be disappointed.
  • Best beach in area. Shady. Lonesome. And very nice views. Free parking and nice walks. We will really miss it. Have been here Every day.
