    Beautiful Gulf view from this long pier! "People watch" as you stroll the pier and see local fishermen along the way. Dolphin often race around the area and jump for the crowd! Sunsets are fabulous......  more »

    Lepo mesto za pecanje i setnju i gledanje zalaska sunca. Plaza je sa obe strane, a restoran u pozadini. Veoma popularno mesto jer je to jedan od retkih restorana u Venice koji je na vodi.Ja zivim u bl...  more »

    Great place to bring the family. Free parking is a plus and easy access to the beach as well. Fishing is good and you don't need a license if your fishing off the pier. Enjoy your time.

    The parking was good. Even with a crowd, I was able to get a good shady spot. Parking was free. The walk to the peir was not far at all. Sharkeys restaurant smelled delicious by the way... The walk on the pier was beautiful. Breathtaking views of the blue water and my husband and I even spotted DOLPHINS near the pier!!! That was very cool to see. The little shop on the pier had a very friendly employee and had cold drinks and some delicious looking ice cream bars. There were a few kiddos running around without an adult. And some kids were fishing off the pier without having precaution about where they were swinging their hooks so it was a little scary having to walk past them...other then that it was a very pleasant walk. Venice is a must visit!!!
