This was a great beach especially if you want to look for shark teeth. We had only planned on spending one day at this beach but ended up back here later in the week since we enjoyed it so much. Easy to find, easy parking and nice restrooms. We had better luck finding shark teeth the farther down the beach we went. Not crowded at all and the folks we did run into were super friendly. My only advice is bring your sifter or whatever you want to use to look for shark teeth, there was no place that we saw on Caspersen to rent or purchase unless you stop at Sharkey's, they do have a few to rent. Only other little issue we had was when we were leaving the beach the sand was super hot, so hot my son even with his flip flops on almost started crying. It was very painful, not sure if water shoes would have worked better but the sand gets super, super hot. We definitely plan on heading back to Caspersen on our next trip to Florida. We loved it!!!!

What a beautiful beach! Spent the afternoon looking for sharks teeth. We found a few but very small. We were ill equipped. We should have brought a sifter. Anyway, nice beach, there are public restrooms, covered picnic areas and outdoor showers. Definitely will be back!

Small beach but goes up and down the coast forever. Not crowded mostly shark tooth hunters. Has very clear restrooms, play ground bike paths up the inter coastal.

Been going to Caspersen's for over 40 years, since I was in Venice High. Still love it! Harder to find shark's teeth as the years go by with sand fill due to erosion but the "hunt" is part of the fun. Grouper Sandwich at Sharkie's is also a favorite stop.

We took a family vacation to Clearwater Beach And after day 3 were over the crowds and parking drama just to go to the beach. So I jumped online to see what was near enough and worth a little further drive south. Caspersen Beach had great reviews so we packed our stuff and headed south. So glad we did.

The beach here is so nice and peaceful. Not crowded at all. Free parking and plenty of showers and bathroom facilities. Well maintained! Our daughter loved hunting for sharks teeth and found so many until she found a few kids her age to play with and then it was all boogie boarding and building sandcastles with them. It's a very family place where parents and kids are digging for treasures in the sand. We just pitched our umbrella and put out our beach mats and cooler and relaxed, went snorkeling and treasure hunting for sharks teeth.

Can't wait to go back. We live in Orlando so this is so close that it's a shame it took all these years to discover it and we travel extensively.

Looking to go back before summers end and back to school since we only had that one day there.
