Our goal this weekend was to visit Caspersen Beach and we eventually got there, but we enjoyed the indirect route/ journey just as much. We arrived in Venice during 4th of July Weekend (Friday the 3rd) not too long after the park’s 8 a.m. opening time. When we pulled into the parking lot (that had loads of empty spaces), we... More

We visited this beach with our 2 boys who are 5 and 9 years old and they had so much fun digging through shells for sharks teeth. We did find 1 right away but no others. The rocks sticking out of the water are pretty to look at. Pack a picnic and stay for the day. Nice bathrooms, outdoor showers... More

We decided to take the hour drive to Venice. Caspersen is a very beautiful beach with crystal turquoise waters and tons of shark teeth and shells. The beach is somewhat rocky. I would recommend bringing water shoes. There's not much of a beach part to set up, unless you arrive early. We have been twice. We went to the section... More

This best beach in Florida to go scuba diving and snorkeling to find shells and sharks teeth. Pack a cooler for food and drinks not very many places to get food or drinks. 👌

Awesome beach.... I live in Venice, FL. I have taken many family members and visitor's to many of the beaches in the area. Caspersen is usually their favorite. Excellent facilities and parking. Fish right off the beach and sharks teeth are easily found. One downside is no food and refreshments available.......

It was our first time there, my in-laws brought us. We are used to Jersey beaches, so the shells on the beach, while walking into the ocean, were a little painful. Would recommend water shoes. We searched for shark teeth with a tool they brought along - a basket on a pole to gather the shells and sand, which we... More

We were driving around looking for the pier but we ended up at this beach. We stopped and discovered that they have nice trails, accessible restrooms and big covered picnic area. We are definitely coming back when it's a little cooler.

Nice beach. Pets are welcome as well. There are restroom facilities, but parking is an issue during the winter months. Good beach access.

This is the best part of Venice to go and find shark's teeth. It is quieter than other parts of the beach, and when you head south you typically find lots. There are bathrooms and showers at the parking lot as well, which is great if you are getting back in your car all sandy

Beautiful beach, inviting water. Beach on one side and Red Lake on the other side. Good parking. Walking, biking trails and kayak launch areas. Gulf waters very blue and great for those who shell and hunt sharks teeth. Parking is free, another bonus.
