    Nice quiet beach. It's under redevelopment trees have been added throughout the parking lot. Food, washrooms, lifeguards, volleyball and more. Well worth visiting. Can't wait to see after the Reno.

    Stay away on the weekends. Too many out of towners and you may get stabbed, esp on Easter. Great beach during the week, very quiet! Dont plan on fishing in the surf anymore, the police will stop you.

    This is a very nice beach. There are lifeguards during the day time, a beachside Cafe, plenty of showers and restrooms, and a nice view of the sun setting over the Gulf of Mexico.

    Awesome beach! Free parking, extended walking path shaded by hundreds of Australian Pines. Picnic tables and lots of charcoal grills available for cookouts and family events!

    Cortez beach is the first area you'll come to when going to Coquina. Set up shop there as its less crowded and easier to get back and forth to the car if needed.

    Beautiful beach. Sand is clean. Water was clear and warm. Very large swim area and nice concession stand.

    Just relax and have fun! and watch out for manatees. Some will get close to humans, and even let you pet them!

    I love this beach. Weekends can be crowded but perfect during the week! Beautiful.

    The rinsing stations are for rinsing off, not for taking a full shower. Please leave your shampoo at home.. unless you are homeless.

    The squirrels are super-friendly here, but be careful or they'll steal your keys!

    Come to the beach in search of “coquinas,” colorful mini seashells. Or, enjoy low-cost kayaking to see the dolphins.

    Bring nuts to feed the squirrels. They take it right out of your hand.
