Lots and lots of shark teeth. Good beach for the family. Kiddies will love the searching for shark teeth, ample parking, great sunsets.

This is a gorgeous beach! If you want to get into the water, you will need a low tide or else the rocks are very big & wet to cross over. Lots of fish, crabs, sea life around the jetties. Snorkeled & had a great time.

It's a good beach with low surf/surge that is just right for wading or swimming. And, if you're still "raising 'em" - great for kids too. If you just want to read, meditate, sunbathe or just sleep on soft sand - this is the place. Venice's beaches are a well kept secret and better than those further north. Enjoy.

White sand, plenty of parking, clean restrooms. Some areas are a bit more rocky but plenty of areas to choose from. Warm waters. Lots of wildlife. Sarasota County takes great care of their beaches. Found some shark teeth. Will be back :-)

Lovely beach with great waves and lots of rocks for hunting for sharks teeth and shells. Nicely protected from the breezes.

We heard this was the place to find sharks teeth. We did find 5 over two days, but it tool a lot of sifting and digging. There were a lot of large rocks at the waters edge, so with the rough water it made it hard for the little ones to swim. You have to find an area with less... More

I was not aware that most of this beach is surrounded by rocks, it was nice, lots of people shelling, quite for the most part. I would probably try out another beach next time.

To many rocks for my liking. Not exactly what I had in mind. Very crowded in the area we were. Poor amount of parking.
