Nice Gulf-coast beach

Sand is course here, but still okay with me. They are pumping sand back onto the beach due to erosion and storms. Beautiful sunsets!! Just a little slice of heaven!

We always come back to Venice Beach. Very clean safe & has a concession stand. The weekends can be a pain to find a parking spot. But a great place to hang out & soak up some sun/

What a great beach at the end of West Venice Avenue. Nice sand and a big area to take a beach walk. Public restrooms and a snack shop. Free parking. Heaven!!

Besides the sand and gorgeous water, there is a snack bar that serves breakfast and lunch daily. There is also music every night and yoga classes on the beach in the morning. One thing to be careful of is there will be construction on the beach, probably in the next month. (written mid-Feb 2015)

Clean, modern restrooms. Great snack bar with reasonable prices, lifeguards on duty, beach clean and un-crowded the month we were there (January). Parking was great and good walkways to the beach from the lot. Panoramic view afforded

There was a lot of work being done on this beach during our visit. Apparently they restore this beach every ten years. Seems like it would be an excellent beach when work is completed.

Nice for walking. A beach dog park at one end. Really lovely. And a Mecca for shark tooth hunters. Walk out on the pier. The view is fantastic

Lovely unspoiled beach, little snack bar with a pavilion that has live music at night. Lifeguards - sand bar - green blue clear water. Highly recommend.
