We were looking for "The best sharks tooth beach in Florida." This is not it. Drive straight to Caspersen Beach. We just didn't find anything unique or great about this beach in any way. Too crowded and nothing special.

Lovely clean beach. Great for collecting seashells. Sunsets here are also breath taking. Lifeguards on duty here also.

Nice to visit; close, good, free parking; great facilities; crowded on weekends. Fun to walk, good boat and people watching. The sand is not fine, white, soft - rather coarse and "shelly". Lots of restrooms, foot showers, walkways. Bring what ever you need, no services. Watch little ones in the water closely.

One of the nicer beaches we have visited in Florida. Mostly couples and families. Volleyball nets for the more athletic The snack shop at the Pavilion is a great convenience. Several nights a week there is live music, too

A great beach within walking distance to downtown Venice where you can enjoy all the shops, cafes, bars, restaurants and ice cream shops. The beach itself is big and beautiful, spent a lot of time in the sun on this beach so remember and bring your own umbrella, it can get very hot.

Traveled to Venice Florida to meet some friends and soak up some sun. The town is lovely, small and quaint. Visited the beach at the municipal park, beautiful. The water was gorgeous, the sand was warm and the shell hunting productive. We also visited the canals and did a little fishing. It was great, walked the seawall (there were benches)... More

I grew up going to this beach. It didn't disappoint as I came back 35 years later. Unfortunately I couldn't find any shark's teeth like I did when I was growing up. You really need a scooper to get down and get the shells in the break line.
