Venice’s premiere attraction may be its more than 7 miles of sandy Gulf beaches.  From Nokomis to Englewood Beach, you will find family-friendly beaches where you can enjoy Florida sunshine, swimming, fishing, paddle boarding and more.  Depending on the season, Gulf of Mexico water temperatures range between 70 and 90 degrees, making dolphins and manatees frequent visitors.  Did you know that Venice is considered the “shark tooth hunting” capital of the world?  The fossilized shark teeth date back to prehistory but many sharks, mostly of the harmless variety, still cruise along the shore today.  Don’t miss enjoying the spectacular sunsets over the Gulf.  Check individual beach descriptions for detailed information on directions, parking, lifeguards, facilities and more.
