“Why settle for this?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2012

Brown sand, and shark's teeth occasionally, are no match for the beautiful white quartz beach right up the road at Siesta Key Beach.

“NIce accessible beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

This is the beach that is closest to main street Venice. It has clean restrooms, showers and changing areas and a small snack bar. Access to the beach from parking is very easy and level and there is even a fat wheeled chair that can be used to wheel those with mobility restrictions right down to the water. There are life guards on duty during the day, a beach volleyball area and several benches for those who want to sit and watch. Venice area beaches are known for the fossilized sharks teeth that are plentiful along the beach. Great family beach or beach access for those who find long walks in the sand difficult.
