“A Wonderful Early Morning Place To Visit And Spend Time At”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

Taking a walk from Tamiami Trail down Albee toward Casey Key and all of a sudden, you're there at one of the areas finest beaches and one of the wealthiest parts of the Sarasota/Venice area. Rumor has it that many well known people like Stephen King, Oprah and others have their homes on Casey Key Road which runs from Nokomis by the public beach area all the way to Blackburn Point Road in Osprey several miles up. Walking along the beach is a real experience and the famous Shark Tooth Diving Experiences are World Famous with visitors to both the Nokomis and Venice areas. The beach area has the great white powder sand and is almost as nice as the beach in Siesta Key which is not far away but certainly Nokomis is not as crowded or as commercial as Siesta.

“You won't want to leave !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

Expect to find a beautiful well kept beach with amazing warm Gulf Water. Perfect for swimming and snorkeling. Lots of parking with shade and different little paths that bring you to the beach. Clean bathrooms and places to get out of the hot Florida sun But the best part is what happens on Saturday nights. The Nokomis Drum Circle takes center stage! What a delight..everyone brings drums..instruments..bells..hula hoops..or just dance to the beat if you want. Get there about 5pm to get a parking spot.This is a popular event. It's so cool to see everyone share their talent and creativity. Bring a blanket and enjoy sand..water and true Florida !

“If you want privacy and a beautiful view of the Sunset, this is your beach.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

Nokomis is not as wide and spacious like Siesta Key beach, But it is a beautiful beach with not nearly as many people. Not as good for walking, but better for a long swim to the jetty and great shelling.Our visiting family always wants to come here. Your own private beach, (If not too many people read this). After the day, you've got Pops for dinner around a flaming table or on the Intercoastal waters edge. Come for the Drumming party on Wednesday night.
