North Jetty Beach Park is a great place in Venice to watch the boats pass through the channel from the Intracoastal Waterway to the Gulf of Mexico. With numorous seating spots available, it is very popular among locals to spend their lunchtime here – to meet others, have a bit of small talk or simply sit and enjoy the view.
The beautiful beach at the southern end of Casey Key is great for families. Large free parking lots with several beach accesses, restrooms, concession stands, picnic shelters and a playground area attract expecially on weekends.
