My husband and I really enjoyed walking around this beach area. The sand is a little pebbly, so we kept our flip-flops on, but it was fun to walk and see all the shells and tons of ghost crabs that hurried to hide in their holes as we passed. There were lots of people looking in the water for shark... More

Stopped by on the morning of Easter Sunday on our way to Tampa. Luckily found a parking spot. Saw two dolphins and a stingray before even touching the sand. Found around thirty shark teeth in about three hours. Clean restrooms and friendly people doing exactly what we came there to do...find sharks teeth. Carry drinks and food because it is... More

We stopped here for a break driving between St. Pete Beach and Ft. Myers Beach. It was a rainy afternoon and there were only 3 other cars there. Nice, clean bathrooms. Boardwalk, but I didn't go far on it as the rain started again in earnest. Met a nice young man with a bucket with shark's teeth in it. He... More

The beach in August was pretty much empty and lots of parking. My past trip I had to park pretty far away from the main bathroom building and beach. The beach it's elf was pretty crowded. I'm not sure if their are signs posted but their should be a number posted around the place to call for possible rabid animals.... More

Caspersen beach is a gem on the Gulf Coast. The beach is an awesome sight. Great place to hunt for and find shark's teeth. The sand is extraordinary and the rocks on the beach add a great charm.

Unbeatable scenery, great facilities, plenty of parking, nature trails, picnic areas, playground, boardwalk, lookout points, great shell-hunting. Unfortunately the sand quality is not that great but you can't have it all. Overall you will not be disappointed! Visitor-friendly and safe beach with none of the annoying parking meters.

This beach is right down the road from Venice beach and worth checking out. It is a bit more secluded being geographically more removed from town. I was easily able to find a shark's tooth here once I learned what to look for - they are generally small so you need to shift through the shells and sand. There seemed... More

Great beach for kids as they will be entertained looking for sharks teeth. The beach is not very wide and there are rocks in the water so you have to watch out for them. That being said, the water is beautiful, it feels like you are in the Caribbean instead of Florida.

Unfortunately for us there was construction going on with sewer lines by th pier but farther down the beach it was nice. The parking was a problem but the beach nice! If you're looking for sharks teeth bring a long handled metal scooper.

Great beach, plenty of parking, wasn't crowed, looked and found several small shark teeth. There is a fresh water rinse off after you come off the beach which was much appreciated. The restrooms were clean.
