This rare geologic feature is a great place to view birds and marine wildlife, and it is also next to a scenic beach.

We spent a lovely afternoon snorkeling just off Point of Rock. There was vibrant orange coral and a nice variety of tropical fish. The sand on the adjacent beach is white, fine and powdery. .

Gorgeous spot on Siesta Key! Beautiful properties, some of which are part of a gated community. Quaint, beautiful part of the island.

We went in High Tide, while the waves were rough and covering the rocks. I would say that it would be much better to view when the tide is low.

Make sure you have water shoes. This beach is not easy to access but if you can there are GREAT shells to be found!

For four days, we stayed at the Siesta Sands at Point of Rocks and the area was beautiful. Lots of families and busy, but so much more secluded than the public access beaches. I would recommend any place in this area and there is also...More

Keep in mind the name as you venture out to this location. It is very Rocky so have boots or water shoes on for an easy entrance and exit. Depending on how many people are here the visibility might be okay but the rock formations...More

My wife and I really enjoyed snorkeling the Point of Rocks. It was really neat to see all of the fish and coral formations. The water is crystal clear and easy to access from the beach.

I loved seeing these rock formations! Definitely a site to see! Always up for an adventure, but it was hard to find. I wish there would have been a sign on Midnight pass road so you knew the whereabouts. GPS didn't help, no parking, and...More

I 100% agree with dwvonfischer. Best to snorkel at high tide (around the point if you like. No walking around the point required). Walk around the point at low tide. Bring water shoes - rocks can be sharp.

I think there is some rule about fishing from the shore and if you are Floridian (live here) then don't need license and if fish from boat then you do. I do know you are allowed to fish from point of rocks.
