  • Beautiful beach, less traveled great updated facilities to change, wash with cold drinking fountain!
  • The beach was nice. The reason I'm giving it 5 stars is because we met with a park ranger earlier in the day and watched a turtle nest excavation- they found 7 live turtles and we were lucky enough to watch them being released at Coquina beach at sunset. Great experience.
  • Really nice area with showers and bathrooms. Pier is really nice
  • Beautiful Beach! Recommend to any one who want to visit this place.
  • I have been going to Coquina Beach every Saturday, weather permitting since last summer. Last time I was there was on Thanksgiving 2016. I was deeply disappointed when I went yesterday, February 25, 2017. Coquina Beach was a beautiful, relaxing getaway from everyday life. When I arrived yesterday, I thought I had turned on the wrong road. The pathway to beach from parking lot was no more. Instead, there is a drive area for vehicles. Really!! on the Beach. Why do vehicles need to be on the beach. While I was sitting in my chair reading and enjoying the sound of the waves, I was hoping I wasn't going to be hit by a vehicle. Even when I was walking on the drive area for vehicles (only path to walk on) I was hoping I wasn't going to be hit by a vehicle. I was so sad to see that things had changed. My little relaxing getaway is gone. Ugh!
