This beautiful sandy beach offers good gulf bathing. We saw many dolphins and a manatee. Enjoyed a venture onto the jetty {very carefully]. Collected many shells and shark's teeth. Have enjoyed Venice Beach for seven decades.

Very nice sands and beautiful water. You can see dolphins and manatees from the jetty. Be careful, something clamped down on my foot, I believe it was a crab. Of course, I ran out of the water screaming!! My husband thought I was overreacting until...More

This was our fourth beach in two days (short vacation!) and it was windy and rough water so we didn't stay long. It was beautiful and clean - and LOTS of shells!! Wish we could've had better weather that day to stay longer.

Blue green water that you can enjoy while watching sailboats and passing dolphins in the distance. The water is refreshing on those hot summer days and there is no crowding on the beach. Plenty of room between you and the next sunbather. Enjoy!

This is a Great beach, not crowded, very quiet and relaxing! Clean bathrooms, close parking, and lifeguards. Yoga is offered in the morning and evenings!

Not a bad beach, but Venice pales in comparison to its neighbor 40 minutes to the North - Siesta Keys. Venice is a decent place for a nice few hours out, but in such proximity to Siesta Keys - you'll wish you'd invested in the...More

Very fine deep and wide beach and a huge plus is free parking instead of gouging like some of the Gulf Coast beach cities do.
