We loved walking along this trail in combination with walking on the Coquina Beach beautiful paved walk. Took the free trolley to Coquina Beach and also visited the Wednesday and Sunday Beach Market. Loved it all!

Very nice boardwalk throughout this area. Great views of the water. We visited during a relatively cold time of the year so did not see much wildlife.

Very nice little park for a short walk. Plenty to see in a short amount of time. It’s also across from Coquina Beach Park so you can extend your walk. Time it with the twice weekly beach market to extend the outing.

We enjoyed our morning walk on the boardwalks at the park. What a lot of work has gone into building all of the walkways in this park. When we got to the bay we were rewarded with dolphin sightings!

This is a great location to view the inter coastal waterway from. It’s a little awkward to walk there from the main Coquina Beach as you have to cross the road. Currently there is building debris in the car park but it’s worth persevering.

2nd time visiting this hidden gem! It's a fun bike ride from Holmes Beach area to Coquina Beach and the baywalk. The mangroves are very interesting.

This was a pleasant surprise, park is bigger than we thought and was fun to explore. Winding boardwalks and trails to follow. Trails are mostly along the waters edge, hidden in the mangroves. There was evident damage from Hurricane Irma, but we still enjoyed the...More

Love this walk when you have a couple of hours to kill. The wild life is great and the view points over the water are great to look out and see different things. The little crabs are everywhere and so entertaining. I have a disabled...More

This was a fun family hike. We went with our 2 year old, and she had no trouble with it. It offers some nice variety away from the beach / pool. It was hot when we went, but we went first thing in the morning,...More
