Welcome to Venice
About the only resemblance Venice has to its Italian namesake is that it's an island in the sea. Venice has scenic, tan-sand beaches but is otherwise a quiet seaside town that's most popular with retirees and families with young kids, who enjoy hunting for sharks' teeth. It also appeals to budget-minded travelers looking for a low-key getaway – far from the condos and hard-drinking beach bars elsewhere. Here entertainment pretty much begins and ends with saluting the tangerine sun's nightly descent into the shimmering ocean.
