My favorite beach

Wide beach, beautiful water, good facilities, plenty of parking. Not typically as crowded as other nearby public beaches. Saturday night drum circle is a tradition.

Great public facilities, clean beach, clean beach, gentle to no waves, no rocks, and few shells to search for.

Very clean, beach was very nice, water was great, nice gentle slope going out in the water, didn't find a big drop off, and didn't find any rocks out there to trip over either.

I hesitated to write a review of this beach because it's such a well kept secret. (See fewer than 300 reviews vs. nearly 3,000 for Siesta Key.) I didn't want to spread the word for fear of attracting more and more people to this gem. But here goes anyway. Nokomis is located south of Sarasota half way to Venice. It's... More

This is by far my favorite beach in/near Venice. It is never really crowded. It is so much closer to walk down to the beach than Siesta Key, and while the sand is not as powder white as Siesta, there is little to no seaweed in the water, like Venice Beach. We enter the beach at the end of Albee... More

Lived this beach! Very quiet and not too crowded. The area behind the beach is not built up and tacky so it is very pleasant. We come here all the time

My wife and I visited this beach multiple times during our stay and fell in love. The sand isn't as white as siesta and had a few more shells but still nice for walking barefoot, the water drops off fairly fast to waste high. It seemed to be less crazy and we also saw lots of dolphins jumping very close... More
