Jungle Workouts

For those who love to workout the Caspersen Beach Jungle Gym provides a great body weight circuit in the bright Florida sunshine. Won't find this tropical atmosphere at the big box gyms!

World Class Beaches

Caspersen Beach

Caspersen Beach is one of those rare places that appears today as it did 500 years ago. The black sands contain the Shark Teeth from millions of years ago giving this isolated and secluded beach the distinction of "the shark tooth capital of the world".

Venice Beach

Venice Beach

Venice Beach is at the end of West Venice Ave and is known for fossils and shark teeth. The beach features a boardwalk, concessions, picnic area, restrooms, sand volleyball courts, outdoor showers, and free parking. Lifeguards are on duty daily year-round.

From the black sands of Caspersen Beach, the "Shark Tooth Capital of the World", to the sugar-fine quartz-white sands of Seista Key, Villa Ocala is a beach lovers Paradise.

Nokomis Beach

Nokomis Beach on Casey Key is One of the Best Kept Secrets on the Florida Gulf ... a great beach on which to hunt for sea shells, it’s a quiet, laid back, residential beach retreat with lots of room to roam or stretch out. Saturday nights you will find the Drumming Circle at sunset.

Siesta Key Beach

Siesta Key Beach

South of Sarasota, Siesta Key Beach has been named the nation’s best -- twice. The world's finest, whitest sand is 99% pure Quartz (Silica sand), and as fine as confectionery sugar, and is soft and cool on the feet.

Lido Key Beach

Lido Beach is very popular and attracts visitors from all over the world. One of Florida's most pristine beaches, Lido Key is known for its eco-tourism and sunset cruises. It's the place to go for deep sea fishing, dolphin watching and sailing.
