Venice Beach is a favorite beach spot for locals as well as divers who come for its coral reef which is located a quarter-mile offshore. Like many of the Venice area beaches, you have a good chance of finding shark’s teeth washed up on the sand and seeing dolphins play just beyond the swim area.

The beach features a boardwalk, concessions, picnic area, restrooms, sand volleyball courts, outdoor showers, and free parking. Lifeguards are on duty daily year-round.
