We live in Tampa Florida and this is now one of our favorite beaches by far. We visited three times and found over 100 shark teeth! I am sure this will be one of our go to beaches from now on!

Bring your riddle screen and some patience! The beach is rather rocky and not so much for swimming, but clean. However, we came the 2nd time and found again (small) teeth. Parking, restrooms and showers are available and free of charge.

It was a great day great shells available to collect while snorkeling great amenities without dominating your visit. There are stone break water along the beach that run perpendicular to the beach and for snorkeling is full of all kinds of fish. Going back.

Whenever the grandkids have been in the area they request that we take them here to look for sharks teeth. They always manage to get enough to make them happy. We, of course always go into the water too.

Caspersen Beach is a great place to go especially if your looking to get away from Venice Beach. There's more room to spread out and find your own space on the sand if your willing to take the time. I like the boardwalk area and...More

I bring my own snorkel gear. If you are going for just shark teeth though, no snorkel gear is needed. There are plenty of shops nearby to pick some gear up; unsure about rental.

No, there is not. I can see people fishing there though.
