We really enjoyed the beach. Dolphins swimming and we watched them put on a show for a while. Every thing clean. Wishing grandkids where with us. A lot of people but not over crowd. Very relaxing

Nice beach off the Esplanade, although a lot of construction equipment on sand - not sure if it was due to construction or beach remediation. nice shelling along shoreline.

First time to Venice Beach--the work being done to save the beach was making great progress the week we were there. Kinda interesting how they're doing it. Enjoyed time at the beach and returned for sunset. So Pretty !

Lovely spot. Sometimes crowded. Food available throughout the day. Free music some evenings. Free yoga on the beach - 2 sessions in the morning and one at sunset.

When the Gulf is calm and you want the children to enjoy Florida take the Family to Venice Beach, walking... making sand castles with your children ....or better yet the GRANDCHILDREN ******Please NOTE the Beach is being refurbished from off shore but there's plenty of sand to LOVE

Not too busy, close to downtown with a snack area, Don't forget to look at shark teeth ...... Watch the people around and you will understand. Those are millions years old .... Really nice with children

This beach was great, clean, not too crowded, my wife and sister-in-law had a great time looking for sharks teeth, you can rent a scoop with handle for sifting for 5 bucks at sharkys. They each found about 20 sharks teeth. A friend told us the traffic down here was better, took 40 min from Bradenton, was 1:00 to drive... More

What is not to like? Clean, spacious, white sand, crystal blue waters, Sharkys is nearby, ample parking, and hunting for sharks' teeth can keep kids occupied all day. One of my favorite beaches in Florida is Venice Beach for all of these reasons. It is truly a beautiful place to relax without the crazieness of South Beach. This is a... More

This is a nice beach. Got here early to get parking. The lot was pretty full at 9:30am. Just as we got to the beach a very large yoga class was dispersing. Public restroom by parking lot. Also a convenience store at the end of the lot. Nice, quiet beach. Got pretty crowded. There were dozens of baby sting rays... More
