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
