When visiting Venice in March of 2018 we found the Jetty to be a neat stop to grab some ice cream, relax, and enjoy the views. The people there were friendly, inviting, and the parking ample. If ever in the area, definitely check it out!

our art group has come here to paint- beautiful views. We enjoyed lunch afterwards, and recently, a swim! We enjoyed people coming to play music- this was on Thursdays at the food concession. Very clean facilities; handicapped accessible ramps and restrooms.

We had a great time on this beautiful beach collecting shells, chasing the birds and walking along the shore. Parking was free and the sand fine.

The North Jetty Park is a great beach park....lots of free parking, concessions, great place to fish & great beach too! The entire island is awesome & definitely a place to visit! The only downside- low speed limit & traffic

I have not seen any jet ski's on the beach so probably not safe. They are in the intracoastal, there are several rental places near the jetty.

No I don't think so. There are swim buoys that mark where boats must stay out. Maybe further down the beach you'd be allowed to.
