A small seaside hamlet, Nokomis is bordered by the beautiful cities of Venice to the south, and Sarasota to the north.

Spend a leisurely afternoon at Nokomis Beach Park, Sarasota County's oldest beach, where you'll find a great place to launch your boat, bask in the sun or plunge into the azure blue surf. At the south end of the park, the North Jetty is a great place to fish, sip morning coffee, toast the sunset, or just enjoy the view of boats hustling in and out of the bay. ... more.Nokomis has the bucolic charm of a small fishing village where local residents know one another and send a friendly wave to visitors and newcomers.
