Went in search of sharks teeth and found a pay day. Daughter-in-law had the scoopers. Fun day outdoors. Great outdoor shower and bath facility.

Somehow the nature has been preserved. The boardwalk, rinse/shower stations and bathrooms and incorporated in the beauty of the area.

Lots of sharks teeth. Kept quite natural. Beautiful day. Water still a little chilly. Nice for walking and looking for shells and sharks teeth.

Drive straight down Harbor Drive into plenty parking. Back lot features tables and kids play structure. Beach was narrow and rocky this year but plenty of sharks teeth to be found early in the morning! Great raised boardwalk too.

Got there early after reading some reviews saying parking fills up fast. Love the free parking as most beaches are starting to charge. Beautiful natural beach with plenty of sharks teeth for everyone. Does get crowded during the weekend. Bathrooms were clean. Will definitely recommend.

Took my family to this gorgeous and beautiful beach. Spent 3-4 hours looking for shark teeth. My daughter found 270 small to medium shark teeth.....wow no lie. Beautiful water and sand. Just love this beach.

Beautiful beach. No lifeguards. Bathrooms available. Fun for shark tooth hunting. Near a dog beach, Sharky’s Restaurant and Venice Lakes Golf.

This is a public beach and I don't believe there is a chair rental.
