Staying in Siesta Key with the soft white sands is totally opposite of this location. But can a beach really be "bad"? Not that I've seen (yet). We walked a lot on this beach. We went right before spring break season and it wasn't as...More

We went to the section of Venice Beach near Sharkey's and the pier. Free parking! Make sure you bring a Florida shovel when visiting. We found a ton of shark teeth which was very cool.

Great beach when there's no red tide! Parking can be tough in season but there are two lots and a nice area with restrooms. Beach is large and is public.

We love to walk the beach here. Bathrooms are close, parking is close. The average crowd is polite and much smaller than beaches north of here.

Venice Beach was clean and it wasn't very crowded, but the sand was course and it stuck to your skin. There were also lots of shells, which makes it fun if you're searching for shells, but hard on the feet if you're hoping to walk...More

There is a company near by and they might have lockers but there isn’t anything at the beach. I would definitely lock my car and bike there but I’ve never had a problem with my stuff on the beach.
