Great views of and from the pier, great shark tooth hunting beneath and around the pier. Sand isn't quite the white quartz but still a nice area.

We enjoy going to the pier to hang out and it’s our favorite place in Venice to watch the sunset🌅! You always meet interesting people and the atmosphere is relaxing.

Lunch was great and you sat looking at the sea, beach with great people & birdwatching. We sat downstairs at end of season so tables for 5 was easy. Great bar food especially 🐠🌮!

Dad and I came down to fish at sunset. We were fishing with shrimp and caught fish (lady, pin, flounder), crabs, or had our bait stolen (shortly after hitting the water) with each cast. We were reeling in some blue crab and suddenly a dolphin...More

This is a good walk along a pier in Venice Florida. Stop by the restrauants located at the beginning and have a meal. Good spot for a drink also.

You are able to rent gear on the pier but depending on how much fishing/how many days/people you may want to bring your own. I also felt like bait prices were a bit high.
