|Around 1920, the Lewis family arrived at “Goat Island,” which is what we know today as Coquina Key. After an unsuccessful attempt to turn the Island into a residential area, Charles Hall stepped in. He cut a channel from Big Bayou to Little Bayou, which resulted in the creation of Lewis Island. But it wasn’t until 1955 that the Mackle brothers bought the land and started the little St. Petersburg community. Coquina Key received its name in 1957 after a renaming contest held by city officials.|
Today, Coquina Key is home to luxury waterfront properties, lovely single-family homes, beautiful city parks, and incredible views of the bayou. Known as “The Friendly Island,” Coquina Key Neighborhood Association is constantly hosting events for its inhabitants. The neighborhood’s clubhouse is available for rental and has held countless parties for the community. Coquina Key is only minutes away from the downtown area and has plenty of activities for both residents and visitors to enjoy!
