Beautiful beach, great for shelling and looking for sharks teeth and sand dollars. Saw a pod of dolphins swimming by - great to watch. Toilet facilities very clean and ample parking. We would definitely visit again.

Currently under construction for beach improvement due to storms earlier. Great place for shark teeth hunting. Not your ordinary beach because of rocks but kids love exploring

It's a nice beach smaller and quieter. Nice for shell walk and it's quieter in the early morning , with just a few walkers and fishermen. Nice facilities too!

We were at this beach a couple of years ago and decided to try somewhere else this time to look for sharks teeth. We spent 20 minutes at the Venice municipal beach and we packed up and went to Caspersen. Just go straight to Caspersen Beach.

I love the beach. I found the beach's there to be very clean. Good for the kids to find shark teeth. I like how most beach's have a bathroom to go to. Usually very clean

Manasota and Caspersen beaches actually connect - so you could walk the two of them...if you enjoy a long walk. In any case, Caspersen Beach is easy to get to by car, just drive on south from Sharkey's/Venice Pier. There is easy access to... More

Go here for shark's teeth! The drive to Caspersen is a lovely narrow natural approach to Caspersen. There is a canoe launch and you can ride your bike to Caspersen via The Venetian walkway. New modern echo friendly restrooms.

Beautiful, rustic, low key beach. Can get crowded on weekends but seems to clear a bit later in the day. Really lovely spot.
