We loved the peaceful quaint downtown, historical buildings, lots of festivals year round so we plan to go back soon. Close to Sarasota and lots of beaches with beautiful sunsets.

Venice beach is known for its sharks teeth, but we didn't realize you have to be there at low tide to have much chance of finding them. Nonetheless, our six year old enjoyed playing in the water, which was reasonably gentle. Nice sand showers at the parking lot so you can leave the beach at the beach.

Nice beach to sit on and relax. They built new restrooms.....there is even a beach yoga class you can jump into during the morning! Just a short walk to Sharky's and the Sharky's fishing pier! Just down the end of Main Street. Food to eat is also available! Come enjoy the morning with a cup of coffee and beautiful water!... More

Beautiful beach and a great place to view sunset. Looking for sharks teeth and shells is always fun too, clean bathrooms available with easy access. For the most part people are friendly with the exception to some who think the rules are for other people, but this you can find anywhere. Beautiful beach!!

Recently (June 2015) re-built beach is nice. A sand bar off shore makes it a great place to swim. You can walk for a mile south to the Inlet, or walk miles north and check out the Nouveau Rich Mansions of Casey Key.
