The beautiful beaches are a dime a dozen in Southwest Florida. However, one that is often overlooked for its charm and beauty is Nokomis Beach. Nokomis, FL sits just north of Venice and south of Osprey. The town harbors a historic and pristine beach in Nokomis Beach; a 22 acre beach park that attracts people from all across the country. While some tourists visit the beach, it is a very quiet local beach with little interruption throughout the year. Nokomis Beach runs into North Jetty Park, right next to the intercoastal waterway. There is so much to do on the water during sunsets and beautiful days.
The geography has unique features, as well. Anywhere west of S. Tamianai Trail is virtually overlooking the water. The area is a hot spot for locals to do family dinner or a beach day. Both Casey Key and Nokomis Beach are two amazing attractions that while encompass tourists, are far less crowded than their neighbor beaches to the north (Sarasota and Venice). Make no mistake, you get just as good of a turquoise blue view from either beach. And it’s not just the crystal-clear waters that is a main attraction. Nokomis is well known for it’s good eating, too. Pop’s Sunset grill, Saltwater Café and North Jetty Tap & Grill are some hot spots. The main beach and jetty serve as fun spots to do beach picnics, as well.
Not only are picnics a fun endeavor, but there are other outdoor activities that are fun for the whole family. The Nokomis Community Park has everything a family could ask for: playgrounds, tennis courts, basketball courts, and shade for mom and dad to relax while the kids play. There is also The Legacy Trail which spans from Sarasota to Venice which has thousands of cyclists and outdoors adventurers each year.
Lastly, let's not forget the real estate. If you're planning on moving to the area, we highly recommend checking out homes in the city. The market is booming and there are always homes available for all buyers. If you haven't taken you and your family to Nokomis Beach, we highly recommend it.Posted by Andree Huffine, Sarasota Realtor on
