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

Excellent beach to just sit and tan or snorkel at. Showers available at various locations. Sea turtle nests all over!

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

What a beautiful beach! Spent the afternoon looking for sharks teeth. We found a few but very small. We were ill equipped. We should have brought a sifter. Anyway, nice beach, there are public restrooms, covered picnic areas and outdoor showers. Definitely will be back!

Small beach but goes up and down the coast forever. Not crowded mostly shark tooth hunters. Has very clear restrooms, play ground bike paths up the inter coastal.

Been going to Caspersen's for over 40 years, since I was in Venice High. Still love it! Harder to find shark's teeth as the years go by with sand fill due to erosion but the "hunt" is part of the fun. Grouper Sandwich at Sharkie's is also a favorite stop.

We took a family vacation to Clearwater Beach And after day 3 were over the crowds and parking drama just to go to the beach. So I jumped online to see what was near enough and worth a little further drive south. Caspersen Beach had great reviews so we packed our stuff and headed south. So glad we did. The... More

Had a nice time here! Found a lot of really good shells and took some nice pictures. The water was awesome. Make sure you always wear shoes and bring a chair, not a towel, to sit on. That black sand is killer on bare feet! Not very crowded which was SO nice! All in all, a very relaxing time.
