About Nokomis, Florida

Nokomis is a small town just north of Venice – so, not too far away from the action if you want a wild night out.

Being on the Gulf Coast, it has two gorgeous beaches: Nokomis Public Beach and Casey Key. There's sun, sea and sand – what more could you want from a beach vacation?

Well, luckily for you there's more to Nokomis than meets the eye. There are plenty of places to shop, and Sarasota isn't too far away, so you can always go exploring.

This young town is a fantastic place for those looking to get away from everything. Embrace small-town living and the relaxed beach atmosphere to make the most of this vacation.

What to do

There's plenty to keep you occupied in Nokomis if lounging by the beach or pool isn't your thing.

There are two spectacular golf courses – Calusa Lakes and Mission Valley – where you can go to try your swing surrounded by fantastic views of the Gulf Coast. Trust us – it makes for a great day out!

For a bit of excitement, rent a boat or a jet ski and go soaring across the water. You may even spot a dolphin or two.

Energetic vacationers can try the Legacy Trail – 26 miles of paved road from Venice to Sarasota. You'll get to see all the sites. Just rent a bike and be on your way. Though, we suggest bringing your own water and watching out for alligators along the way!

Enjoy the green spaces nearby. Venice Myakka River Park and Scherer Thaxton Preserve are two of our favorites.

Spend the days learning to surf, windsurf or kitesurf and come back with a brand-new skill.

Top Nokomis travel tips

Book any lessons or activities well in advance, as it may get busy.

Hit the beach early to get your spot. And, if you’re driving, go even earlier to make sure you get a parking space! Once you’re there, just roll out your towel and start soaking up the fresh air. Or, get active with a few beach games.

If you go to restaurants, remember that tipping is not included and the going rate is 10-15%. 

For a sunny beach vacation, come to Nokomis and enjoy the laid-back lifestyle it has to offer. Make it the best trip it can be by booking a Nokomis vacation rental with FlipKey.
