If all you want is to lay in the sand it would be a fine place to be. No concessions no stores no nothing. A long drive with your valuables locked in your trunk nothing out there nothing to do better beaches in Englewood better beaches in Sarasota not happy with the security or the obscurity.

It was my final day of vacation and I thought I already had seen all the local beaches in the area. Then this one came up in my search, so my sister and I took a drive there. I could not believe how pretty it was! Part of it is rocky - like what you may see on the coast... More

Great little beach, nice and quiet. We went in the afternoon about 3 hours before sunset and we found about 30 shark teeth. My 3 year old son absolutely had so much fun!

This is a nice area and a lot cleaner than some beaches even though I didn't remember seeing many garbage cans. Parking can be a bit tricky. Wooden walk ways take you to the beach. The area is known for the fossilized sharks teeth. You can purchase the sifters to try and find some. Lots of locals make there own... More

We actually stumbled upon this because I didn't turn where I was supposed to...but it was a great decision! Gorgeous beach and beautiful views. We were there at sunset and it was perfect. Not a lot of foot traffic and very peaceful. Very clean and well kept. Loved it!

If you want a little privacy, this is the place to go during the week. Beautiful sandy beach with the usual Venice sharks' teeth. Plenty of parking and shower and bath facilities. Very pleasant.

We love this beach! Water is typically calm and clear and we always leave with shark teeth! Definitely a great beach to have a beach day at!

We like to go shark's tooth finding at Caspersen. Kinda a low volume beach to explore especially out of season. Great low cost date with ur wife and romantic. The off to one of Venice great causal restaurants.

My husband and I loved it here! There was a much more rustic feel a and was very pretty to walk. I have an obsession with finding sharks teeth and I found one there! I was told it's the best place to find them. We weren't there long and I would go back again in a heartbeat!
