Very nice beach, great place to look for shark's teeth. Seen several turtle's there crossing the roads. Check out the shower area where thousands of sharks teeth are embedded in the concrete!

A great place to find shells and shark teeth! You can walk for miles and enjoy the white and black sands!

Having visited southwestern FL for twenty-plus years, we were always attracted to its beautiful and pristine beaches. We fell totally in love with Siesta Beach in Sarasota because of its white sugar sand and extreme walkability. It is, however, mobbed in season.

We had out-of town visitors and wanted to show them some of the local sites that we really appreciate. One of our favorite beaches is this beach...until now. We have lived in the Venice-area for 9+ years, and always enjoy Caspersen...until this most recent visit. Wind and waves have caused extensive erosion with some access points even barricaded.

More secluded and closer to nature. Good for quiet relaxing day. Good for searching for sharks teeth. Also a section for shore fishing.

Nice clean beach and plenty space. It wasn't very crowed in Mid Feb. Kind of a windy day and cool temps. But this is a great place to visit.

The beach is badly eroded in spots and parts of it are rocky. Parking is free and usually the beach is not crowded. Huge shark teeth can be found here, especially in deeper water. Close to Sharky's and the fishing pier and historic downtown Venice

Very narrow but rustic beach, away from the crowds. Lots of sharks' teeth, good gushing. My husband and I renewed our bows with about 100 others on Valentine's Day 2015.
