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

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

This is a beautiful spot at the end of Siesta beach – south end. Great to wander out at low tide onto the flat rocks and look for shells in the tiny crevices. Also a great place to snorkel and kayak.

Love walking along the point of rocks, low tide is the best time to scavenge shells. There are so many shells it is also very peaceful, walk it a few times every time we are here.

We walk to this area from Crescent Beach. Would love for it to be more accessible...guess there is a hotel or something there and a wall built, so hard to access the entire point unless you walk the top of the wall.

My son and I swam over to the point of rocks while staying at a resort on Crescent beach. People do climb along the sea wall but I decided that it wasn't safe or worth the risk of falling or slicing our feet open on...More

Awesome place to snorkel around the natural rock formations in the midst of several types of local fish. Crystal clear water that makes the snorkeling even better.

Since there is no nearby parking, this end of Crescent Beach is mainly for locals and condo residents. Beach entrance #13 is tucked away next to a mansion at the end of Point of Rocks road. No facilities, but a gorgeous beach!

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.
