parking was poor and it was a longer walk to the beach than we thought it should be. There were large rocks on the beach and we had to walk a long way to get to a spot where we could enter the water easily.

Perfect beach for everyone. Stay out of the mangroves! Sharks teeth every where. Don't mind the low flying planes.

Caspersen Beach is an amazing and beautiful beach. You can just relax on the beach and listen to the rolling waves or try your luck at finding some incredible shark's teeth and shells.

We loved this beach because it was not crowded and the shells and sharks teeth were not hard to find.

we thought that the beach was average at best though obviously popular with those shell seeking - never seen so many people sifting shells. To us the benefit is the very close access to the Venetian Waterway. You can walk along this or cycle - see separate attraction for more info. Back to the beach - nothing startling but good... More

First visit to Venice and had high hopes for this beach. Most people on the beach were busy sifting, looking for shark teeth. My purpose was a long walk on the beach and there are much nicer beaches for this activity!! Parking and access are very easy and there's a nice place to rinse off and restroom facilities right next... More

The beach was not quite what we expected when we first arrived as it is quite rocky but the water was lovely and clear and warm. You can see the tiny fish swimming round you.

We only spent about 45 minutes here after being told by people further North near Sharky's that this was the place to find Shark's teeth. We did ok but nothing spectacular. It's a nice park and a pretty beach. We parked somewhere that seemed to be directly across from the beach but it was a long walk down a boardwalk.
