It's a beach we will go back to many times. Last in the row of Venice Beaches it made me think of Hawaiian beaches. Beautiful, blue water and great dunes. We had an incredible day with family. In spite of the rain we played hard!

Excellent beach, perhaps the best of the best for shark teeth. Limited parking, but free, sand, water, sunsets make this beach like the others south on Manasota Key.

We were on the island loop trail and biked here - lots of shelling and beautiful sunsets. Plenty of parking. You can also link to the end of the venetian waterway trail

We come here often, with family and friends. Young kids, teenagers, everyone loves it. So much fun to play in the water, relax, and look for teeth!

We heard that Venice Beach is the shark's teeth capital of the world, so we decided to find out on our own. The amenities were good and the beach was clean. We arrived early (low tide), so parking wasn't an issue. With our sand shovel...More

In the area in front from the beach to the rocks it is very calm. That's why it's a great place to look for sharks teeth. The waves crash on the rocks.

Farther down Caspersen Beach (to the south) there are less rocks. However, this beach is more likely to have undertow, rip currents, etc. in the water. If your goal is the safest place to swim, I suggest Venice Beach (near... More
