The Beach is clean and well kept. It's nice to be able to go to the Beach, find a place to park, and just spread out & enjoy yourself without having someone else on top of you. That's my kind of beach!

Easily accessed, a little bit browner & courser sand, large white drain pipe is a bit unsightly, no umbrella rentals when we were there but it was the week after Labor Day, life guards were on duty during the day.

Not too crowded and a bit uneven but good for finding shark's teeth. Fairly shallow at low tide but drops off on places. Would be good for kids in general.

The beach was so clean. There were lifeguards on duty. The water was so pretty, the waves were so fun to play in and the beach area was not super crowded. Clean, new walkways to get to the beach as well water sources to clean off sand before leaving.

I have been coming to Venice to visit my parents for over 20 years. We have been to all the local beaches and find that there are great and unique features to them all. The Venice beach is great because of the parking, pavilion, and walkability. This trip my wife and I took a late day trip for a walk... More

Drain pipe on beach sort of makes you wonder what comes out of it. Of all the local beaches it has the oldest facilities.

Venice Beach is a great place to look for sharks teeth and manta ray plates, most are small but still fun to find. Dolphins frequently come around also. Fun for any beach lover.

The beach itself is nothing special. Sandy with shells and rocks. There is a shower area and bathrooms at Casperson's beach at the end. Picnic tables to sit at that are shaded.

Awesome beach with no crowds morning or night with the exception of perhaps those gathering for the sunset. Clean, parking, walkable from town, with snack bar and with a walk you can hit the jetty or pier. If you need a beach with people to people watch this isn't it. This is a beach for those who enjoy the peace... More
