Peaceful and rugged with a character of its own. Another feather in Venice's cap.

Tucked away in picturesque Venice......much visited for its famous shark's teeth. This is an unusual beach, not too wide with a craggy coastline and very tranquil. Besides the shark teeth, get ready to spot a wide variety of sea birds that have made Caspersen their home. This beach has a beautiful approach road with plenty of parking spots. Must visit... More

I visit this beach often when in Venice visiting my parents because I love collecting shark's teeth. This is one of the places where they wash up. The beaches are a little rough and sometimes rocky and they aren't very wide, but sand is sand and there's sure lots of it here! One of the experiences you may have at... More

Drove up from Ft Myers almost 2 hours. Took my 10 & 6 yr old girls to find shark's teeth... No such luck. After about an hour or so of digging & sifting, I found one tiny shark's tooth. The red tide was so bad that we began coughing before we even parked. Maybe on a nice warm day it... More

A lovely natural beach. The best place in the area for finding sharks teeth. Road has been flooded and closed with heavy rainfall and high winds.

One of the prettiest beaches we've been to. Just be careful and the rocks and waves. It can get rough at times, but overall it is just beautiful. Best shark tooth hunting anywhere.

This has all the makings of a nice beach however the lack of close parking and facilities too far away from the beach detract from this beach experience. No life guards on duty at this county beach and there has been some problems with some unsavory types hanging around this beach do not make for a pleasant experience.

Years ago Caspersen Beach was a beach, but erosion has taken its toll. It's still the best place to find shark teeth and the boardwalk makes for a nice stroll and benches provide a quiet place to sit and watch the birds play over the Gulf. There is also a great picnic area and playground and, if you are so... More

I've always loved this beach since it's one of the last natural beaches left in Florida but unfortunately everyone has discovered it and the crowds take away from the ability to enjoy it's natural beauty. I've been a shark's tooth collector for years and this is the beach that I always have the best luck....but there are only so many... More

We drove down from St Petersburg (1 hour) because my husband had always wanted to dig for shark teeth. We stopped and bought a kids sifter and within an hour we had 4 complete shark teeth. Some visitors had very extensive setups but we were either lucky or it's not necessary. For the bigger teeth I'm sure you need to... More
