All reviews crescent beach low tide water shoes private property great place to snorkel public access tidal pools great shells great shelling siesta key beach beach area great beach waves seashells condo visibility fishing
The Point of Rocks is at the South end of Siesta Key Beach. It’s an excellent place to snorkel, fish, look for shells or just swim and relax. Depending on the Tide and the weather your day may be different from those I have experienced....More
It was a little diffucult to actually get onto the beach since we had our 2 younger children with us, but once we managed to get down this was an amazing place to find shells. We must have found hundreds! and even saw some little...More
Actually, there is a section of rocks running north to south along the water's edge, where the Point of Rocks starts at the end of a north seawall that comes out from the south end of Cresant Beach. Good snorkling at higher tides from shore...More
It has the same soft powdery sand as it is a part of the Siesta Key stretch - just further down. It was definitely less crowded than Siesta Key Beach but not much to see snorkel wise (which is what it was listed as-as snorkel...More
This is a must if your a shell lover like I am. Best place to find seashells on the island. I would suggest to wait for Low tide before tempting to head over there. If not you will need to bring your hiking or water...More
Low tide is the best time to get over to the point of rocks. If not you will need your shoes to jump up on the wall. If you love shells like I do then this is the place for you. Millions of shells. But...More

Con: Choppy, murky waters made snorkeling very difficult. We could see more wildlife standing on the rocks than we did underwater. Lots of shells, but...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.
