Venice Travel Planner logo   Venice Beach, Venice Florida
The first destination of many visitors to Venice Florida is this splendid sand beach at the western end of West Venice Avenue. 




The longest beach in Venice Florida is wide, smooth, sandy, and convenient to most parts of Venice Island (map).

Follow Venice Avenue to its western limit at the Gulf of Mexico and you'll come right to Venice Beach.

Facilities (toilets, showers, etc.) are just at the end of Venice Avenue; or you can turn right and follow the road as it winds north to the northern end of Venice Beach at South Jetty.

The beach is long. It extends northward all the way to South Jetty, and southward quite a ways from Venice Avenue.

Facilities include showers, toilets, picnic tables, boardwalks to the beach, and parking lots.

You can sun, swim and play on any beach, but only in Venice's beaches can you find fossil sharks' teeth. Yes! They're yours for the finding, for free...depending on your luck. Where else can you get a million-year-old artifact for free? More...

Venice's beaches are the best place to spend the evening: watching the spectacular Gulf of Mexico sunsets. More...

Other beaches in Venice include Service Club Beach, Fishing Pier beach and Caspersen Beach. To the north, Nokomis Beach, north of North Jetty, is the continuation of Venice Beach.
