Our South Venice “Private Beach”

A short 3-minute drive away, the community owned Beach Ferry starts to our piece of paradise, an all-natural pristine “Private Beach”. Take a long walk along the gorgeous shoreline, look for fossil shark teeth or just sit there and relax – having a wonderful time watching the waves. Chances are good you spot a bunch of dolphins!
