Shark teeth gold mine!

Nice beach access with dark sand and tons of shark teeth. Rocky in spots but plenty of space for swimming also.

This beach is a favorite of mine and my husband's. We meet the most amazing people here. All hunting for the coveted shark tooth. Sometimes they're right in front of your face and sometimes you have to dig, but if you like a quest, don't mind a rocky small beach then this could be a magical place for you.

Great place to look for and find shells or just to spend the day at the beach. It is a good place for families.

Walked Caspersen Beach on a Sat morning and decided it was a perfect place to bring 91 yr old dad so came back 2 days later! Beach is somewhat narrow and there are large boulders in some areas to break the surf but it's an interesting beach to walk. It's much different from Venice and Nokomis and definitely one of...

We visited as I was interested to see this shark tooth beach and were so glad we did. We spent a couple of hours just chilling and watching people with their scoops searching for their treasure. Its a great place for taking kids who would be kept busy for hours.

Group of friends went for a bit of shelling and relaxation. Beautiful quiet spot. I understand this to be great for shelling, but wasn't my lucky day. The facilities are immaculate.

People came with all sorts of sifting equipment to look for shark teeth. Not such a great beach for the water and sun. Beach is rocky and not much beach. It was fun watching people.

Based on the tremendous parking options and nice bathroom facilities (and outdoor showers for washing down salt and sand), I'm going to assume this is one busy beach during the summer. Today in the mid morning it wasn't crowded at all though a couple of dozen people were out combing the beach and shoreline with their nets. Ås we walked... More
