This is a terrific place to view the sunset. Parking, however, can be a problem. Wear sturdy shoes as you might need to walk on some rocks to get away from other people.

Loved this beach. On my first day, the water was so turquoise in color and absolutely gorgeous. Unfortunately, this beach is becoming much smaller due to erosion however I would come here again.

Drove the 2 hours from Orlando and hunt for sharkteeth with my son. It was slow going, but we were finally able to find some souvenir shark teeth. They were all small (dime size), but being able to spend the day with my son shifting and delight of finding them is priceless. Would have liked to gotten one of those... More

Love Caspersen Beach! Fun to look for shark's teeth and less crowded than Venice Beach. Great for views of the gulf sunset!

What a fun spot! My wife remembered this spot and the shark teeth from her childhood and really wanted to go. So we make the 2 hour drive from the Orlando theme parks one day with me being pretty skeptical we'd find any sharks teeth. But we weren't there more than 10 minutes before we found our first. After finding... More

A quiet beach at the end of the road. Good parking and excellent restrooms. Few people around but those who were there were very friendly. Found some sharks teeth!

Siesta Key Beach Sarasota boast the #1 rating in the USA. But, it is downright awful at Siesta as there is NO WHERE to park. None. Snowbirds by the hundreds circle the beach lots in their cars for hours during high season, winter, with no place to park. People even get ugly arguing over spots. They're building more parking, but... More

Best beach for photo's and shark teeth hunters. Bike from the bridge or drive. Early morning or evening just before sunset for dolphins when the water is warmer.

Looking to get away from the crowds...this is the place to go, a hidden gem! There are spots where you can take your children and be "alone" and enjoy the sand and the sea. Or you can sit on the benches provided and watch the waves on the man made walk way....

This beach offers ample access opportunities to the beach, both for able bodied as well as handicapped people. The beach stretches south for what seems forever, offering plenty of opportunities for privacy - or at least a less-crowded beach experience. Some of the road is closed to traffic, allowing safe bicycle riding. There are very well maintained bathrooms, and there's... More
