We took a total of 10 people to Venice Beach and we had a great time! We had our 18 y.o. son and his girlfriend, our 17 year old Nephew, 16 year old son son and his friend and then our youngest 8,7, and 5 year olds. They all had a great time. The beach was not crowded (we went on a Tuesday a week before school started. They have a snack bar, restrooms, showers. Lifeguards are on duty. There was a bit of a shore break but the kids liked it. Going further away, the water is about 5 feet deep for about 25 yards and then you are on a sandbar about 3' deep. This beach is also known for finding Shark Teeth as they get washed inshore. On flatter days a Snorkel set would be good to have along with a net to look for burried shark teeth. It's just over an hour from either Tampa or St Petersburg. They also have Volleyball nets set up. You will need to bring your own beach chairs and umbrella as they don't have rentals there that I saw. Maybe on the weekend.
