Beach is eroded so it is narrow. However, it is very long and there are several walkways to the beach. Many people snorkeling. Disgusting piles of feces....not sure if it was human or dog.

We snorkel the rock jetties on a day with clear vis. Saw millions of silversides, hundreds of snook, juv.pompano, Atlantic spadefish, pinfish. And others. Also found several exquisite shells....can't wait to return.

Very natural beach. Not touristy at all. Very relaxing and quiet. We really enjoyed our afternoon there in the sun! Found some beautiful shells. The locals were friendly and like to chat. Would definitely visit again!

Haven't been to a beach in years and my friend that I am visiting took us to this beach and wow! Not as populated as a public beach, yet it has its share of visitors, if you want a quiet place to relax, take a dip and just take in the scenery, this is the place in Venice, FL
