Great beach, great location just a mile from downtown Venice, convenient parking, food and drink is available just north of the parking lot and a wide beach with great sand and not too many people made for a fun outing.

This beach is great for spending an hour or the day. Good beach for walking, shelling, swimming, or just relaxing. Plenty of parking, and some of the most beautiful sunsets Florida has to offer!

Parking was easy enough as it is the off season. The concession stand looked to have great food but as a traveller I only carry debit/visa. So it was a no go for food. Beach was endless white sand..what can you say..it is a beach.
