Nothing wrong with a little natural... More

Having been here before and taking home many sharks teeth, I had to return with friends while in the area. The beach is a great place to visit and offers outside areas to wash sand off as well as restrooms. The water and beach are beautiful and well worth the visist.

This is the best place to look for shark teeth. They are in abundance. However, if you want to enjoy swimming and sunbathing, choose Venice Beach. The sand at Casperson Beach is grainy, the beach is narrow, and the swimming area is rocky.

Great place to find shark teeth. Shade for the non sun lovers. Crystal water and great parking. Natural setting worth sharing.

Nice beach access with dark sand and tons of shark teeth. Rocky in spots but plenty of space for swimming also.

This beach is a favorite of mine and my husband's. We meet the most amazing people here. All hunting for the coveted shark tooth. Sometimes they're right in front of your face and sometimes you have to dig, but if you like a quest, don't mind a rocky small beach then this could be a magical place for you.

Great place to look for and find shells or just to spend the day at the beach. It is a good place for families.

Walked Caspersen Beach on a Sat morning and decided it was a perfect place to bring 91 yr old dad so came back 2 days later! Beach is somewhat narrow and there are large boulders in some areas to break the surf but it's an interesting beach to walk. It's much different from Venice and Nokomis and definitely one of...

We visited as I was interested to see this shark tooth beach and were so glad we did. We spent a couple of hours just chilling and watching people with their scoops searching for their treasure. Its a great place for taking kids who would be kept busy for hours.
