This beach was about 10 minuets away from where we were staying in long boat key. The bathroom facilities are nice, they have feet washing stations on both sides. They also have changing stations located randomly around the lot. Very pretty beach with white sand...More

This is a really nice free beach area. It gets really crowded on the weekends. There is a beach market on Sundays from 10-4 that is worth checking out.

We originally took our granddaughter to Lido Beach which was inundated with red tide so decided to go to Coquina Beach. It was clear and gorgeous. Definitely worth the trip.

The location is a bit off. Visit the Durante park on your way. There is a cafe where you can buy a beer. Funny to see how much junk people bring. You would think they are camping for a week

Coquina Beach is a truly special find. Beautiful vistas, not crowded, except on weekends and very adequate facilities. BBQ's, picnic tables, rest rooms and very adequate parking. There are a number of boat ramps that lead to excellent fishing spots, as well as scenic kayaking...More

Yes, we counted at least two blocks of restrooms along the beach walk and there is a restroom round the back of the Coquina Beach cafe
