Directly across from Venice’s shopping district, this large public beach provides free parking, a dining pavilion, concessions, lifeguards, restrooms, picnic tables and beach wheelchairs. SCUBA divers can explore the reef a quarter mile from shore while beach dwellers can sift the sand for Prehistoric sharks’ teeth. This is a popular beach with limited parking, so arrive early.
INDIVIDUALS WITH DISABILITIES:
Reclining, floating wheelchairs are available from lifeguards to power through deep sand and water.
The vacation rentals in Venice vary from apartment efficiencies, hotels and motel rooms to rental condominiums. The atmosphere is casual with plenty of good restaurants and excellent shopping. Historic Venice Florida is quiet, but a popular vacation spot… so book early and enjoy your stay. RECOMMENDED ACCOMMODATIONS
