Point of Rocks is at the end of Crescent Beach. Lovely lovely spot for watching the birds in the early morning. So peaceful. And watching the sunset in the evening. Again so peaceful!

Yes, Point of Rocks is listed as a must see for Siesta Key. Keep in mind, this isn’t someplace you drive to, park, get out of the car and walk down a paved trail before you ‘arrive’. That is NOT the case so if you’re...More

We went to Point of Rocks to snorkel. It was tough to get to during high tide as you have to walk out from Beach Access 12 and then jump onto the sea wall to walk to the steps at the end of the wall....More

Down the beach from Siesta Key it's a nice wide beach with some small hotels. Nice and clean with beautiful Blue water. Lots of shells.

We had access to this area by swimming/walking through the water from Crescent Beach. There were a lot of people that would snorkel here, and some were fishing. Huge assortment of various shells in this area.

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. .

Given your location, you would have about a 2 and 1/2 mile beach walk to get there. Remember you have to walk back also. That walking back can be daunting. And yes, if you drop your car off at the Stickney Point Bridge, it's... 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.
