Coquina Public Beach is located in Bradenton Beach just south of Bridge Street and spans all the way to the Long Boat Key Bridge. Coquina Beach is a local’s favorite beach on Anna Maria Island. For activities, there is a paved walk/bike path the entire length of the beach, and multiple volleyball courts.
A gorgeous beach, be sure to avoid swimming on the very southern tip of the island, obeying warning signs, as the water running under Longboat pass is strong with rip tides. Stay withing the large designated swimming area.
Coquina Public Beach has two public restrooms, concession stand and more than one lifeguard tower. There is also a lovely shaded grilling & picnic area, as well as a pirate ship playground on the beach for children.
