Went there early morning when it was quiet and it is certainly worth a visit. Watched the fish jumping in the lagoon as did a large blue Heron standing in the shade. Well constructed board walk which had fishermen on the end and I'm sure would be a haven for photographers.

Went to Coquina baywalk with our three kids. It was easy enough for our two year old to walk by herself. There was a lot to see with many different birds and plants.

I went early to see the sunrise there. It was such a nice and calm atmosphere at that time. Only birds, the sea and me. The walk is not too long, approximately 20 minutes, so its easy to do it before breakfast.

Worth a wander around the boardwalks to pass the time, not a great deal to see, particularly if there a more than a few people around as the wildlife stays out of sight.

Parking was easy here, as opposed to across the road where the beach gets really busy. This is a nice short trail, scenic and somewhat informative about local wildlife. My family enjoyed the walk here.

Nice views of the gulf with some "private spots". Very clean, good for families or couples. Lots of fiddler crabs

This is a beautiful spot to walk away from a busy weekend. Beautiful scenery and nice breeze when walking early in the morning.

We took a walk on this trail, and the walkways that went out into the mangroves had some interesting information about the plants and animals, and we saw lots of birds, fish, fiddler crabs and more.
