We took a total of 10 people to Venice Beach and we had a great time! We had our 18 y.o. son and his girlfriend, our 17 year old Nephew, 16 year old son son and his friend and then our youngest 8,7, and 5 year olds. They all had a great time. The beach was not crowded (we went... More

Awesome beach with no crowds morning or night with the exception of perhaps those gathering for the sunset. Clean, parking, walkable from town, with snack bar and with a walk you can hit the jetty or pier. If you need a beach with people to people watch this isn't it. This is a beach for those who enjoy the peace... More

Beach hasn't changed much over a 40 year span. However the sharks teeth are getting harder and harder to find. Too bad the days of just plopping down on a pile of shells on the beach and search for sharks teeth are gone. Took the family yet again this year. After about 2-3 hours maybe found 20. The sizes are... More

Nice place for families. Liked the pavilion & the live music on Saturday night. Good for shelling. We walked so cannot comment on parking.

We went to Venice to go shark tooth hunting for a little bit because this was all our oldest daughter talked about a week before leaving for this vacation. Two and a half hours later, we had collected about 20 shark teeth. Make sure you have some type of sifter to sift through the sand. We used one of the... More

I am an amateur photographer who visited the west coast to catch some beach sunsets. Venice Beach was one of my first stops and turned out to be less than what I had expected. Venice Beach was situated in a condo-riddled neighborhood, lending to a "safe-feeling" atmosphere. A fairly even mixture of families, couples, and singles came out for the... More

We went to Venice Beach to look for sharks teeth but when we arrived we were unprepared. For some reason I thought they would be just lying in the sand and I did not realize that you need to sift through the sand to find the teeth(my bad). There were german tourist who were professional shark teeth explorers with sifting... More

Spent the day here with my family. Great beach and hunting for shark teeth was so much fun. We found about 50 teeth all together and they are mostly pretty small but it was a lot of fun. They had decent bathroom and shower facilities.

This beach if very good for shelling, the sand isn't as soft and white as Siesta Key, but the water was clear and you could see very well when snorkeling. We would recommend it and it is free to go to.
