The beach itself is clean and worth a visit during the day. There was a yoga or meditation group doing their thing on the beach. The... More

Great beach clean and very quite. Biggest bonus no rip off parking charges unlike other areas in SW Florida. The beach cabin snack bar at the Inlet does great hot dogs for $2.50 and coffee/tea for $1.25

We spent some time relaxing on this beach. It was quiet and the sand was nice. You can easily walk here from downtown Venice and it has bathroom/changing facilities on site. Nice safe area to be walking around in.

Free parking and access. Plenty of space to run, sun and wander in search for shark tooth fossils ...1 cup/hr! Wide and long with sand made of crushed shells. Swimming is awesome too. Life guards on duty.

Having been to Venice beach several times, I can only say that it has everything for a perfect day. If you are into yoga you can do that morning or evening. If you get hungry, you can get a snack at the snack shack under the trees. If you like music, they have that too. Beach volleyball is there if... More
