Great place to stroll around and see the diverse life that lives in the mangroves. Many shady spots to stop and relax.

Located across the road from Coquina Beach (it does have its own parking) there are a few short trails and a number of boardwalks; you may be lucky to catch some wildlife. It's very much a question of pot luck. We saw pelicans diving for...More

This small nature preserve is right across from the beach, on the bay side. It’s level with boardwalks through the mangroves to the bay - easy walking. In the center there’s a shell mound with good views of the Gulf and bay.
