Driving from Bradenton on the 64 over the bridge onto Anna Maria Island, you are tempted to turn right and head towards Bean Point. Although it is also breathtakingly beautiful at the northernmost end of the island, the parking lots are unfortunately scarce. The Coquina Beach on the southern tip, however, is difficult to beat in size at least in Florida.
Because of the large number of parking lots, you do not even know where to stick best. But it does not matter, there is an infinite amount of space here. Once you get out of the car, your mouth will remain open at the first sight of the sea. Emerald green, crystal clear water gently splashing on powdery white sand.
Even a spontaneously emerging Manatee can ever enchant the bathers. Punguine as well and sand dollars abound under clouds that rapture. In front of the beach there is everything there is sanitary at all. Toilets, showers, changing rooms and plenty of picnic areas with barbecue under old pines. By the way, parking is free. On the beach every now and then a small bar to quench the big thirst and breastfeeding the small hunger at acceptable prices.
For water sports up to the parachute flying also much is offered. This beach leaves nothing to be desired except the one, not to want to leave.
