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. The snorkeling was pretty good- lots of fish to see especially near the rocks. We returned to Point of Rocks during low tide and it was easier to get through the water to the wall. We were able to walk over to a little beach area where we found beautiful shells- like the kind you buy in a gift shop!

Good luck trying to find this place. After reading reviews we walked down the road a distance to beach access 13 (no parking anywhere so you can't drive there ) to find out we had arrived to the exact spot we would have been if we had just walked down the beach! A local told us the only way to get there is thru the water. So if you really want to visit point of rocks I wish you luck!

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.
