Venice Travel Planner logo   South Jetty, Venice Florida
Right at the northern limit of Venice Beach, South Jetty is a favorite spot for fishing, strolling, sitting in the sun, and watching sunsets.




Two jettys (long rock piers) frame the entrance from the Gulf of Mexico to Roberts Bay north of the center of Venice (map).

Confusingly, the jetty on the Venice side of the inlet is South Jetty. Across the inlet to the north is North Jetty, reched via Albee Road in Nokomis.

South Jetty is part of Higel Marine Park, with toilets, picnic tables, benches, shade trees, parking lots, and plenty of fishing opportunities. Like the Venice beaches, South Jetty is a favorite place to watch the sunset.

To get to South Jetty, follow Venice Avenue west to its western end at Venice Beach, turn right (north) and follow the road to its end at the jetty in Higel Marine Park.
