The Venice Fishing Pier is located at Brohard Park on the south end of the island of Venice, and is owned by the City of Venice.

A beautiful place to sit and relax, watch the sun set, watc the people fishing. A great place to leave the world behind and have an Ahhh moment. Take a walk along the beach, the view under pier makes for some amazing pfoto ops.
A bit of old Florida.

243 Sharks Teeth, WOW!! We had so much fun!! Also in the shallow water where we were, there was a school of stingrays! They would swim up and down the beach and actually swim by and touch us. How cool is that?!

The fishing pier is always a fun place to walk but it is especially nice at sunset. I walked with a very nice big dog who was a hit.

We love this beach/ pier. The water is clear, parking is FREE, and it's not too crowded, even during the season. Great spot!!
