Venice Beach

The first destination of many visitors to Venice Florida is the splendid Venice Beach at the western end of West Venice Avenue.

Venice Beach is wide, smooth, sandy, and convenient to most parts of Venice Island. Follow Venice Avenue to its western limit at the Gulf of Mexico and you’ll come right to Venice Beach (map). If you’re staying in a hotel, B&B or rented apartment on West Venice Avenue, you can probably walk to Venice Beach.


Facilities include toilets, showers, picnic tables, boardwalks to the beach, parking, and a snack stand for light meals and soft drinks.

Note that Venice Beach has lifeguards. (Not all Venice beaches do.)

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