venice beach florida vacation1. Venice Municipal Beach

The best known and most commercial of the beaches here is called Venice Municipal Beach. This beach can be crowded at times, and some travelers find themselves wondering about more serene beaches. If you find this beach too noisy, there are other more secluded beaches to explore. The first thing to know about Venice Beach is that these beaches are located on the mainland, and aren't barrier islands. Therefore, sand is on the darker side, but if you do a little digging, you might find some fossilized shark teeth.

2. Caspersen Beach

At the opposite end of the spectrum is Caspersen Beach, Venice, Florida. Travelers that are looking for a remote, natural beach without homes or other buildings will rate Caspersen Beach as one of the best Venice, Florida beaches. On the weekdays, it is possible to walk for miles without seeing many other people. If you're dreaming of a peaceful day on the beach, this is one of the best places around. Here you will also find free parking, restrooms, and nature trails (it isn't so remote that it is lacking in amenities).

3. South Jetty

The beach at South Jetty is known as a popular spot for surfers. Whether you are a surf enthusiast yourself or want to watch the locals ride the waves, this a great place to soak up the sun. Some travelers might not like the fact that condos dominate this part of the beach, but it also doesn't get overly crowded. If you like to stroll along the beach and collect shells, this is a great place to do so. Be sure to look out for those famous Venice Beach shark teeth as well.

4. Service Club Park

Travelers might find that exploring the best Venice, Florida beaches is easier with the help of rental cars. With a rental car, you can take the short drive south from Venice Municipal Beach to Service Club Park. This beach is known for its boardwalks and covered pavilions. If you're looking for a shady place to have a family picnic, this is it. The beach itself is also fairly quiet, with darker sand (it contains a lot of fossilized matter). This is one of the best places to look for shark teeth.

5. Venice Fishing Pier

Another place to soak up some sun is on the Venice Fishing Pier. Fishing is a popular pastime here, and you can easily rent all the equipment you need to try your luck at fishing. The pier is also famous for a restaurant, called Sharky's, which has a great outdoor dining area.
