We went to Caspersen Beach with our granddaughter and other visiting kids to search for shark teeth. All the kids had alot of fun searching and everyone found some! This isn't a pretty white sand beach.. but was fun to go to and not horribly crowded like many other south Florida beaches.

Casperson Beach is the end of the road (or bike path) in Venice, FL, and is well known for being able to find sharks teeth and shells in abundance. We also love going there for the sunsets.

We visited this beach today in hopes to find some shark teeth. We had heard several people this was the place to go. We drove over an hour and when we arrived, we found the beach had more people on it than any other beach we have visited in this area. Everyone was looking for sharks teeth. Lots of shells... More

Casperson Beach is located just south of the local Venice Airport and is the longest natural beach in the area. Locals say this is the best place to look for shark’s teeth. There are plenty of nature trails, salt and freshwater marshes, mangrove swamps, and boardwalk dunes to overlook all that beauty. Be aware there is no lifeguard on duty... More

Nice beach a lot of space to walk, play or lay around and people watch especially those hunting for shark teeth, and even though it is a pet friendly, beach visitors to this park need to take more pride in picking up after there pets use the bathroom, be careful while walking in the sand!

This is a beautiful and quiet beach and a super spot to hunt for shark's teeth and to find some interesting shells. They have great nature trails and tidal flats. You can see lots of interesting wildlife. We went for a nice walk on the beach. There are no lifeguards on duty. They have Boardwalk style dune walkovers to protect... More

Spent the day with friends visiting from up north and had a fun and relaxing time. The kids played in the surf trying to extricate a large piece of driftwood while one of dads got into looking for shark teeth, of which were sparse at first but then the kids started helping and more were found. The moms got a... More

Although a little rocky, this is a beautiful beach. It's a great place to look for shark's teeth. There is a nice boardwalk too.

Considering how popular the Gulf coast of Florida is becoming, on some days it can be a bit tough finding quiet, natural beauty. Caspersen Beach IS quiet, natural beauty! We found some nice shells on the beach, and saw dolphins not far off the coast. Lots of beautiful birds, too. Others have discovered Caspersen Beach, so don't expect solitude, but... More
