You have a few choices in beaches! If you wanted to visit Venice Beach, it's about 5.08 miles or 10 minutes. You could also visit Caspersen Beach just south of Venice Beach. Very beautiful and more rustic about 5.52 miles from Cumberland or 14 minutes. But don't forget about the private beach accessible by ferry off of Lemon Bay. That's only 1.69 miles and less than 5 minutes from Cumberland. For $95/year, you and your family can take the 3 minutes ferry ride to 1,300 feet of private beach right in Venice. Very nice!... more
