1. VENICE BEACH

A Blue Wave Certified Beach, Venice Beach is located in Venice, Florida. Sarasota County runs the concession area along with the beach, despite being located in Venice. Parking is free and there are lifeguards on duty. Parking is never a problem, and there are never any crowds at the beach.             

The Perfect Surrounding

Venice Beach also provides views of the Venice Public Fishing Pier, making it a good place to spot dolphins and shorebirds. Nests of marine turtles can be found along the beaches of Venice between May and October. Venetian beaches aren’t crowded at all. This is a beautiful beach with a very friendly environment. During the evening, we were greeted by breathtaking sunsets. The sunset is a very special time for a community to come together.

Along with the beach restroom building built in 1964, the unique “sail” style pavilion is an iconic landmark at the beach.

Nokomis Beach Drum Circle

On Wednesdays and Saturdays, the local drum circle meets informally near the lifeguard tower at Nokomis Beach.

Folks arrive around 6 p.m. every evening, but the time depends on the sunset throughout the year.

A family-friendly drum circle takes place at Nokomis Beach about an hour before sunset. During this party, the audience plays maracas or dances to the drummers’ hypnotic rhythm.

The Best Experience Ever at Venice

Property manager David has been wonderful and accommodating. He took his time answering all our questions and made us feel welcomed in person, as well as on the telephone during many conversations with him. This was our 3rd year staying here, and we can't wait to return next summer. The people/guests we've met over the years have become like family to us. This place is a gem, and the guests, location, remodeled condo's and friendly staff, will make your stay worthwhile. Thank you for another fantastic visit and memorable summer...cheers!

Came here last minute in the off season and we were lucky enough to get a oceanfront condo. The condo we stayed in was in great shape, everything worked, and it was very clean. The prices were very reasonable. Nice clean little pool and fantastic beach access. Will definitely go back!

August 202O A Florida Staycation after having to cancel two trips to Minnesota. My children and granddaughters disappointment turned to delight with our stay in beachfront 202. We all agreed that this was the best location perfect views. Morning Sunrises, the beauty of the sky as late afternoon storms came. Followed by double rainbows and gorgeous sunsets. We saw a couple manetees, snorkeled, fished, great meals. David was a blessing, helpful in everyway. We are grateful and happy for our little getaway. Christine, and Justin Chavez and Sterlaces, would highly recommend a trip to the Quarterdeck.
