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.

Very interesting rock formations at the tip have created a Haven for fish and crabs and many other creatures. We enjoyed just lounging around in the warm gulf waters watchingall the creatures there. It was right next to our Beach area and many people explored there along with fishermen all day long. We walked over in the water that was only chest deep. It was like an aquarium experience except you got to stand inside the aquarium. Very cool!

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.

This place is great if you like snorkeling, but I wouldn't recommend it for any other reason. Lots of ocean life to see and great for the whole family. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the complete and utter lack of parking. There's literally no parking within at least 3 miles. The entire neighborhood around it won't allow parking anywhere. I would suggest renting a place if you want to go or maybe parking in town and getting an Uber to drop you off and pick you up.

This place was listed as the top attraction in Siesta Key .
I expected much more than what I saw.
First of all , its hard to find .
Secondly , there is no parking anywhere .
I got out of the car and walked a distance down to the point .
The tide was in and I only saw a rock sticking out into the water .
I could not get any closer .
It wasn't worth the trouble I went to just to see it .
Its supposed to be a great place for snorkeling .
Maybe there is more on the other side but I had no way to get there or see it .
It was a waste of time .
