This beach was OK but not the best I visited. It was pretty small and there was not any restaurants or places to buy drinks where we were.

VENICE Beach offers yoga every morning and a few evening. During the afternoon you can enjoy the Gulf and sunshine with a decent amount of parking, restrooms, snack bar and showers to remove the sand. Rarely packed.

the beach is not very large but you may walk a long time. It's clean and quiet. Excellent for mussel-collectors. Parking ok, restrooms etc. small. Relaxing.

We liked this beach - was great to spend part of our day here. Free parking and nice clean restrooms. A nice little boardwalk if you don't want to go all the way down to the sand. Bring your sunscreen as there is no shade...More

This is a beautiful beach with clear water and a pier to walk on. I guess the water is turquoise blue on calm days.

A couple of benches on the sand but no shade making it uncomfortable on sunny days for those who do not care to lie in the sand.

We found Venice Beach to be a lovely, inviting, clean beach. We spent a most pleasant several hours on this uncrowded beach.
