Top activities and attractions in Nokomis
Nokomis, Florida is on Casey Key and is a throwback to the Florida of old. Nokomis is a small community but has a unique blend of people, from old-school surfers and hippies to the ultra-rich living on large estates on the shoreline of the Key and community. Outdoor activities on Nokomis reign supreme. Surfing, fishing, diving and snorkeling, swimming and bird-watching are all possible in the area.
Look out from the beach into the azure waters on any given day around Nokomis (hurricane season excepted), and you will see many different sloops and skiffs plying the bay and Gulf Coast seas. There are charter operations and boat rental companies offering services to take visitors into these waters. The Venice Sailing Squadron is a local nonprofit club that organizes group sailing events and is happy to share insight and tips to visitors. When sailing around Nokomis, bring plenty of sun protection.
Nokomis and Venice, the adjoining community, share miles of sugary-white sand beach. There is a multi-use path for walking and beach-cruise bicycling. There is surfing along the beaches when the swells are up, and you can snorkel and dive among many different species of fish and marine wildlife. Nokomis Beach has picnic tables, showers and bathrooms. Walkovers to the beach are provided by boardwalks crossing over the dunes. Visitors can observe breathtaking sunsets from gazebos and benches strategically placed along the walkways.
For the adventurous and brave, there are parasailing trips offered out of the Nokomis Beach and Venice areas. Adventure Parasailing offers guided trips over the waters and into the blue skies. Hitch up into the harness and wait as the boat takes off until the lift kicks in, and you find yourself floating high above the waters over Nokomis Beach. In addition to parasailing trips, Adventure Parasailing offers guided Banana Boat rides in which a long motorized skiff attacks the waves for a thrill ride in the seas.
No visit to the Nokomis area is complete without one sunset at the North Jetty. Abutting the beach, the Jetty’s paved strip of rocks protruding into the Gulf gives visitors and locals the rare opportunity to be fishermen, loungers, spectators, surfers, artists, climbers – whatever brings a smile to each individual face. Don’t leave until you’ve witnessed the sunset from this spectacular spot.
The Legacy Trail is a recreational and nature based trail system for hiking and biking that spans 10 miles from Sarasota to Venice, Florida. There are many areas along the paved trail where you can stop to rest, learn about the history of Legacy Trail or just enjoy the scenery.
The north point of the Legacy Trail is near Palmer Ranch in Sarasota, just south of the Seminole Gulf Railway’s current terminus. Traveling south, it passes through the Oscar Scherer State Park in Osprey and connects directly with the park’s trails.
The trail continues south, in a fairly straight line towards Venice, FL as it passes underneath State Road 681 through Nokomis. South of Nokomis, Legacy Trail crosses Dona Bay and then into Venice.
