This time brought our 7 year old twin niece & nephew and they loved it! Hunted for shark teeth & shells. The sand is very hot. Were flip flops or swim shoes. Good showers. We saw turtles on our walk to the beach.

As many have said, Caspersen is a great beach, but please do not hoard the sharks teeth. Do you really need hundreds to prove you have been there? The worse things ever invented are those so-called Florida snow shovels. They should be outlawed for their wholesale harvesting of the beach of all the cool things found there. Thousands of people...

This is the place to be to find sharks teeth and do some snorkeling. The water is clear and I saw plenty of fish around the rocks. The changing facilities/restroom is clean and well maintained.

Wasn't crazy about the beach itself. The start is rocky then smooths out. We went on a Sunday and was very busy. Parking was difficult to find, as they have 3 smaller sized lots. Everyone there were looking for shark teeth so we didn't have a chance since we weren't getting in the water. It's very crowded when you first... More

We really loved this beach. A great change of pace from the jam packed beaches you see in places like Clearwater. This is remote, and beautiful. We loved searching for shark teeth. I give it 4 instead of 5 stars because of the red tide that was in the water that caused us to get congested and cough for a... More

Visit this beach at sunset it's just gorgeous. So much fun digging and sifting for sharks teeth. If you're there during the day make sure you have your flip flops or water shoes rocks are sharp and sand is extremely hot!!! When your done go eat at sharks you will be hot and thirsty and hungry. Can't wait to come... More

At the end of the road is Caspersen Beach, where one can find grayish/black small shark's teeth. What I found out was that there are huge rocks that you have to get past to go in the water. This was a little bit of a challenge. Then someone told me to go to the beach down at Sharkey's restaurant. I... More

This was a great beach especially if you want to look for shark teeth. We had only planned on spending one day at this beach but ended up back here later in the week since we enjoyed it so much. Easy to find, easy parking and nice restrooms. We had better luck finding shark teeth the farther down the beach... More
