When you need to get out of the sun on Coquina beach cross the street to the baywalk and enjoy the birds and the shade. Raised walkways take you above the tidal flats and closer to the seabirds. No need to give up your beach...More

We did this walk one evening after dinner and after a rain storm. It was nice. Easy walk. A few mangroves to look at but nothing completely spectacular. If you're looking for an easy, after-dinner activity to do with small children or any children, it...More

This is called Leffis Key and it is on the bay side [LH side] as you drive south towards Longboat Key. Generally this is quiet and you can walk though the mangrove boardwalks and emerge on to viewing platforms over looking the bay and inter...More

This walk is great for all levels of physical fitness (but probably not very accessible for wheelchairs/walkers/etc.). You can see a lot of different birds around the area and will definitely see about a million tiny crabs. It's a bit more fun in the cooler...More

We stopped here after breakfast during our trip. It was a nice walk. I would suggest going earlier in the morning during the warmer months.

Yes, I am aware it is Florida and I'm sure it would have been much more enjoyable on a cooler, less humid day. I have experienced those type of days in Florida in the fall or winter. Thanks for keeping me on my toes.
