South Jetty

Right at the northern limit of Venice Beach (map), the South Jetty of Casey’s Pass is a favorite spot for fishing, strolling, bird-watching, dolphin-spotting, sitting in the sun, and watching sunsets.

Two jetties (long rock piers) frame Casey’s Pass, the entrance from the Gulf of Mexico to Lyons, Roberts and Dona bays north of the center of Venice (map).

The jetty on the Venice side of the inlet is South Jetty. Across the inlet to the north is North Jetty, the southern end of Casey Key, reached via Albee Road West and South Casey Key Road (map).

South Jetty is part of Humphris Park, with toilets, picnic tables, benches, shade trees, a parking lot, a café selling snacks, soft drinks and ice cream, and plenty of fishing opportunities. Like the Venice beaches, South Jetty is a favorite place to watch the sunset.
