Black Friday? oh yes! at Coquina Beach!

Posted in FLORIDA BEACHES with tags , , on November 23, 2012 by disneychronicles

So I completely by passed the Black Friday festivities this year.


But it was well spent quality family time at the BEACH!

After the huge Thanksgiving meal it only made sense to walk a little bit of it off. So we packed up and headed out to Coquina Beach.

It is the longest stretch of beach on Anna Maria, located on the south end.  The best part is the free parking and plenty of it.  You will also see lifeguards, concessions, picnic tables, a playground, restrooms and showers!

When you first turn off Cortez you will see the usual beach front restaurants, shell and souvenir shops, a large ice cream parlor and TONS of tourists!

Keep going…..and then go a little bit more!

You will eventually see a rather quiet piece of white sand beach!

With tall pine trees lining the beach, it is one of the more picturesque of our beaches.  There’s a walking/running path with signs every few hundred yards talking about the wildlife.

Gives you the feel of “Old Florida”.



Even if only for the RELAXATION factor….It is worth checking out! So go!
