Caspersen Beach in Venice is one of the longest stretches of beach still in its natural state along Sarasota County’s shoreline. Hiking paths and boardwalks allow for bird watching and views of plant species. Venice Beach, closer to downtown, has colorful lifeguard stands, a pavilion with shaded tables and a café, loads of parking, and bathrooms. Finally, near Caspersen is Sarasota County’s only dog-friendly beach, Brohard Paw Park.
