This is a nice little (short) trail, and we did see some crabs. I'm very surprised that it's rated as the #2 activity, however. If you are headed to Coquina Beach, it's certainly worth a stop, but I wouldn't go out of my way to...More

We visit this every time that we are on AMI. It is a great little trail system for nature lovers or anyone just looking for something a little different during a beach vacation.

A nice nature walk south of busy Bradenton Beach, you’ll have a nice view of the bay and see a few fiddler crabs and birds if you’re lucky. Much of the area has boardwalks, but beware of soft sand if you’re traveling with someone in...More

We loved walking along this trail in combination with walking on the Coquina Beach beautiful paved walk. Took the free trolley to Coquina Beach and also visited the Wednesday and Sunday Beach Market. Loved it all!

Very nice boardwalk throughout this area. Great views of the water. We visited during a relatively cold time of the year so did not see much wildlife.

Very nice little park for a short walk. Plenty to see in a short amount of time. It’s also across from Coquina Beach Park so you can extend your walk. Time it with the twice weekly beach market to extend the outing.

We enjoyed our morning walk on the boardwalks at the park. What a lot of work has gone into building all of the walkways in this park. When we got to the bay we were rewarded with dolphin sightings!

This is a great location to view the inter coastal waterway from. It’s a little awkward to walk there from the main Coquina Beach as you have to cross the road. Currently there is building debris in the car park but it’s worth persevering.

2nd time visiting this hidden gem! It's a fun bike ride from Holmes Beach area to Coquina Beach and the baywalk. The mangroves are very interesting.

My understanding from observing others are that dogs are fine but must be in a lead.
