You can park here and go right to the beach. Or keep going to the jettys, where you'll run into this.
The jettys attract a lot of fishermen, they have a bait shop, and area to sit and get some snacks.
We used to come here more often than just once a year for the run. When Wade worked at the jet ski shop in Venice this was a great place to take the jet skis.
The boat ramp here is on the inter coastal and you can go into Roberts Bay, Donna Bay and out to the Gulf Of Mexico from here. Often you'll see dolphins and manatees in the area.
Going out on the jetty looking back at the fish camp.
The South Jetty is in Venice.
Looking out on the beach. They have a playground up by the parking lot, where they have a pavilion and picnic area and restrooms.
Near the wet sand area and near the rocks of the jettys they have a lot of shells. This beach actually has some stones, we don't see that in Sarasota.
Last week when we were here we saw two manatees just in the gulf on the north side of the jettys. Then they swam into the channel toward the bays. Right down the middle of the channel with boats going out to the gulf, no wonder they get hit you sure can't see them when they are swimming. Wade said that we should of giving the manatee in the water sign, what? Okay so you hold your hands above your head to make a big circle (like the A in the YMCA song) just no point on the top.
