Beautiful boardwalk and trails. Walk through the palms and mangroves and enjoy nature. Easy walk for all ages. Near the trolley stop but there is also free parking across the street at Coquina Beach.

Spent a couple of hours here observing an incredible number of different bird species in a relatively small area. Great view from sand hill and interesting boardwalks through the mangrove. A must for birders in the area!

It's a bit off the beaten path but a real attraction. You'll be happy if you bring binoculars. There is lots to see and it's always been quiet and serene when we've been there.

Cooler weather kept us off the beach and this was a good activity after lunch. Not a long walk, maybe about a mile in all. Good views, easy trail.
