We read about the sharks teeth here but we found very few and we are seasoned veterans at the shark tooth game. The rocks make getting into the water difficult. There was also very little beach to walk. Didn't care for the situation. We stayed for about 90 minutes and then took off for another beach.

We heard about "Shark Beach" from a friend. So when we visited the area we decided to try it out! It was so much fun! The beach is beautiful. Whether you want to get some sun, play in the sand, collect shells, or search for shark teeth, it is perfect for the whole family! I would definitely recommend it to... More

A beautiful beach with lots of sharkteeth that are easily found in the water. The beach is perfect for families. There is a kayaking ramp and a playground for children plus a varied terrain with rocks.

This beach and fauna area are more rustic and natural and do require more steps to make your destination....but it is well worth it!!

I drive from okeechobee just to come to this beach, it's wonderful and full of teeth and shells. You have to look in the water where the ocean meets the rocks. The sand flea sifter works well :) you can get one at most fishing stores on the coast

My nephew and I spent two days at Caspersen Beach and found a decent amount of small shark's teeth. I had been here before and "plopped" our search right at the busier part of the beach - didn't find much that time. This time my plan was to walk way down the beach. This was much better. We found more... More

It's hard to find something that two teens and a 9 year old will agree on but searching for shark teeth was a winner! This was probably the highlight of their trip! They all searched for HOURS. They would help each other and celebrate when someone found a "treasure." It was the ultimate treasure hunt for our whole family. The... More

Beautiful, accessible, fun for all beach spot with ample parking and amenities. Biking is easy with access from the bike lane with places to lock them up. If you are willing to work, you can pull up a handful or more of shark's teeth. My preference is to go on non-peak times to avoid the people. Really feels like a... More

We packed our "florida snow shovels" with a day of shark tooth hunting planned. The waves were a bit rough but we still found quite a few. The sand does get very hot because it is dark, so wear water shoes. A really neat little treasure hunt to do with the kids.
