Venice Municipal Beach, Venice

(4.2/5 based on 750 reviews on the web)
At Venice Municipal Beach--reputedly the shark-tooth capital of the world--take time to swim, go scuba diving, relax on the broad expanse of sand, and beachcomb for fossilized shark's teeth that make the beach famous. From the shore or the boardwalk, watch for bottlenose dolphins frolicking in the water. If you are a diver, paddle out 400 m (0.25 mi) to explore the coral reef. Stroll along the Venice pier, where you can fish, take in the view, or grab a hot dog from the bait shop. For a more substantial meal, head to Sharky's on the pier for shrimp and chips or lobster-stuffed flounder. Work out when and for how long to visit Venice Municipal Beach and other Venice attractions using our handy Venice trip generator.

  • Beware of the Red Tide. If you have COPD or asthma this can be deadly. If you have normal breathing - it causes shortness of breath and continual coughing if the wind is blowing in off the water.  more »
  • The beach was nice. The water and weather beautiful. We spent an hour or so here then headed for Caspersen Beach down a bit further where we spent the rest of the day. Lots of dead fish on the beach.  more »
  • The beach is immense, beautiful and clean. There were very few people present in February. Shells are super easy to find. The sand is great for building sand castles.  more »
