A nice beach for families

This was a really nice beach to take a 2 year old. The water was calm and warm. The beach itself was relatively clean, though one morning we did find someone had left some bottles... read more

Venice beach is a wonderful beach just minutes from downtown Venice. Its never overly crowded. But what I love most about Venice Beach is the drum circle that happens on Wed and Sat night. People gather about 1.5 hours before sundown and bring their drums, tambourines, dancing shoes and of course happy hour snacks and dance until the sun goes... More

The water was clean, it was not ever too crowded and the life guard was very attentive. My husband has some trouble walking and he immediately came to help when he saw me helping him out of the ware.

A lovely beach. Wide with fine white sand. It's the place to search for sharks teeth. Many are always found. Plenty of parking with not a very long walk to the beach. Definitely a beach to enjoy.

The area is kept meticulously clean! Not a discarded soda can or candy wrapper in sight! Plenty of room to set up towels and a shade tent. It was nice to have the concession stand, rinse off station, and restrooms so close to the beach. The water was so clear, you could still see the bottom when you were in... More

If you want a great sunset, volleyball, yoga, life guards and fairly un-populated beaches go here. You won't find much to eat within walking distance but a 3 minute drive will accommodate the foodiest foodie.

We live about 40 miles from Venice Beach but often drive there instead of just 10 miles to our local beach. The sand, the plentiful and free parking, and the presence of lifeguards are some reasons. Others are public facilities, a snack bar on site, and proximity to an interesting downtown area. .

Beach restorations detract for what would otherwise be a very nice beach experience. We hope the repairs will be done soon

My husband loves this beach. He's like a little kid on the beach having fun looking for sharks teeth. We've gone many times over the years & we used to find many more. Apparently they brought in more sand from 3 miles out & basically covered up what was there to make a bigger wider beach. Yes, prettier but sadly... More

This beach seems to stretch literally for miles and miles.It would appear to be safe for children with the only problem being the depth of the water seems to increase quite tepidly
