This place has no beach, dirty sand, a fishing pier and bridges walkway. If you are looking for a beach, this is NOT it. After talking to some locals they sent us in the right direction to actual beaches elsewhere. This is however great for...More

Got there before the rain hit back on Sunday my last day in Venice, FL before heading back home. Aside from the swarms of Love Bugs hovering all over my custom 1956 Dodge Royal Lancer I managed to find 1/2 dozen shark teeth in the...More

This is a nice out-of-the way beach. It is a bit remote, but well worth the trip. The view is beautiful. Just remember to pack a lunch and something to drink.

We took a day trip and ended up at the beach. The sand is very hot and burnt the bottom of my feet. Nice beach, rocky with crashing waves. Not a good place for little ones. WEAR WATER SHOES.

We came here sharks tooth hunting and had a nice time. Very relaxing. Lots of large rocks. Just wish they had a snack bar and restroom. Didn’t find as many sharks teeth as i thought I would but oh well.

One of many beaches that are in the area to visit. You will find sharks teeth and they are small. Please know that large sharks teeth you have to scuba dive for.

This is a large beach but narrow. Where we were not far from parking area, it was actually like black sand that was hard to wash off. The black sand also gets very hot on your feet so you need to wear water shoes, especially...More

This is a fabulous beach and if you make the walk down the beach and bring a net or sifter you will find various sizes of shark teeth - you must be patient though they're not easy to find.

A very nice beach with adequate parking. Lots of opportunity to find shark teeth and shells. Many fishermen having considerable success. The beach is quite narrow but it seems more than enough to accommodate its visitors. Many birds on the beach make it enjoyable.

Out for a Sunday drive and discovered this hidden gem. Started at Sharkys Venice pier and it was crowded so we decided to keep going south. Well as the road narrows and you come to the end of the road, there is a wonderful county...More
