Been coming here since the 70's and Coquina is still a favorite. Having kept the natural setting intact is a plus. I know it's critical to do so to reserve the beach and all, but it sure does add to the quality of your experience.
Nice shade too.

On the weekend get there early b/c the parking lot fills up quickly even though it is quite large. There are picnic tables, changing 'rooms' look more like outhouses, restrooms, life guards, and across the street there is a boat ramp. Fishing in the inlet can be accessed by the parking lot. Quite impressed with a free place to go to the beach.

This is an absolutely gorgeous beach. We visted in July due to the red tide in Venice, Florida made our way up here. The water was so shallow and great for the kids. The sand was soft. We stayed in the water all day. There was lots of free parking. Would definetly recommend if in the Sarasota area.
