I enjoy hitting this beach from the jetties... The sand here is the nicest in Venice and it's easily accessible- usually with good parking, too. The sand here is whiter than other areas around town and it's a bit smoother, too. I'd make time to visit this beach if you're in Venice!

With the addition of more sand on the beach this will be not only a great place to be in winter, but really an outstanding beach experience. The facilities and clean beach made it a wonderful daily experience for people traveling from places up north.

Sunset is spectacular here -- bring a picnic, play volleyball and dance to the local band! It is a casual, fun place to be.

Venice beach is beautiful! It's a great, wide beach that is well kept and easy to get to. The concession stand has a great assortment of snacks and sandwiches as well.

We aren't big beach people, but we go to Venice beach in the late afternoon, watch the sunset (maybe do some of the free yoga available most nights) and then stay for the free entertainment at night. Music is appropriate for the older set, but still fun and something to do at night.

Great for kids and adults alike. Looking for sea shells an sharks teeth is rewarding. A safe each for shore searchers.

This beach is big and parking was plentiful but not at all what I was expecting...sorry to say! The sand is gray gravel and tough on your feet if you like to walk barefoot like me. Some previous posters wrote it was white (I can't imagine where they were) and others said it was not! The latter identified the problem... More

This beach is clean and there's a lot of area to spread out and enjoy your day. This beach is known for finding sharks teeth and you will see plenty of people, even the locals, bending down and sifting through the sand looking for shark's teeth. There are life guard stations, shelters, volleyball nets, and food places available.

My husband and I spent a rainy day here walking the beach and checking out all the little sharks teeth! What a nice beach with great facilities. Even in the rain!
