Good clean beach with clear water that you could see the bottom up to 4 feet down. Good changing facilities and parking. The water was like bathwater and was calm. It is nicer and less populated on the left of the fishing pier.

Very nice beach. In the evenings there is music under the pavilion. We like the free yoga on the beach in the morning. Mid day lots of people. Friday nights gospel sing.

We went to South Brohard Park and did the shark tooth dive (there is not a dive shop on site so you will need to take your own tanks, weight and gear as well as a dive flag). I would suggest parking so that you...More

The beach was nothing to shout about.I spent 5 minutes and left. No shaded areas. Sand felt more like crushed rocks than sand. Barbados beaches are 100 times better

Spent a delightful morning here with family. Incredible amount of bait fish in the water, along with feasting pelicans! Great place to swim and snorkel with shallow sand spit. Sand seemed hot after white sands in and around Naples.

This is a good beach for a family day out. Take your supplies for the duration of your expected time there. I think Seista Key beach still wins my preferred beech vote.

No better way to start your day then to join Elin and dozens of others doing yoga. The breeze, the sand, and finding your inner peaceful place every day while working your body gently, it doesn't bet any better than this.

Venice has a Dog Beach very close to Venice Beach and the dogs have a wonderful time on this beach. Venice Beach, itself, is NOT a dog beach. Enjoy.

Drive a little south to Caspersen Beach. If you have more time a drive to Sanibel Island would be even better.

If you have any respiratory issues, I suggest you avoid Venice Beach due to the RED TIDE phenomenon. None of the tourism sites mention it but it's serious and irritated my health problems
