We took a drive to Caspersen beach on the hunt for shark teeth. We didn't know they would be so easy to find. We were prepared only by accident. If you go (and you should!) make sure you have something to sift through the sand with something that keeps everything larger than an apple seed from going through the holes.... More

My wife and I went to the beach to find shark's teeth, we were not disappointed. In two days, we found eleven teeth. This is a natural beach, with a public rest area and limited changing stations. There is an area for sun bathing and swimming and a rocky area were the shark's teeth tend to be found. If you... More

When a day after a storm so the water was rough and murky but it was fun searching for shark's teeth. The park was very nice with walkways to the beach and showers to rinse off after playing in the surf and sand. The boys ages 8 and 11 loved it. We also saw turtle nests marked along the shore....

We love Casperson Beach, especially because it's directly on the bike trail so we can ride to the beach. The beach is natural and unspoiled by condos and development. You will not find float rentals or tiki bars here, which is why we like it so much. Walk down the beach away from the steps to escape all the ridiculous... More

Title says it all!! The beach is not really for swimming, but if you want to find shark's teeth. This is the beach for you!! We found teeth with no equipment. The next time we go back we are bringing tools to make it easier.

Lots of rocks and strong tide at night. As an adult I got knocked off my feet. Went there to collect shark teeth, didn't find any! Maybe we were there the wrong time time of the day? Not what I thought it would be. They did have a bath house and a place to rinse off, that is always appreciated.

Pretty beach, bring the family. Look for sharks teeth and don't forget to look for the White Elephant for some vittles later!

Very clean and lovely beach to spend the day with family. Our six year old had just as much fun as our eighteen year old. They flew a kite, boogie boarded and had plenty of room.The beach facilities were nice.

Casperen is a decent beach, the days of great shark tooth hunting in my opinion are behind. To me some of the neighboring beaches are better kept and more relaxing.

We had a great time hunting for shark's teeth at Caspersen Beach. There was plenty of free parking and the restrooms were conveniently located.
