We spent some time relaxing on this beach. It was quiet and the sand was nice. You can easily walk here from downtown Venice and it has bathroom/changing facilities on site. Nice safe area to be walking around in.

Free parking and access. Plenty of space to run, sun and wander in search for shark tooth fossils ...1 cup/hr! Wide and long with sand made of crushed shells. Swimming is awesome too. Life guards on duty.

Having been to Venice beach several times, I can only say that it has everything for a perfect day. If you are into yoga you can do that morning or evening. If you get hungry, you can get a snack at the snack shack under the trees. If you like music, they have that too. Beach volleyball is there if... More

Overall I was impressed with this beach that can get pretty busy. It had a broad wide beach of sand at low or high tide with sand dunes.
