Great to visit during low tide. Wear water shoes as it very rocky. Great shelling and we watched many a fisher reeling in some fish. Can’t wait to come back with snorkeling equipment.

Our guys really enjoyed fishing at this location and saw many beautiful fish among all the rocks. The birds were awesome too. I am sorry I didn't go down there during our trip, but next time.

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 looking for that, don’t frustrate yourself. Point of Rocks requires getting wet unless you own or rent a home there. At the far end of Crescent Beach you’ll find The Wall. Low tide is the best time to attempt this trek and wear appropriate shoes with good grip. Wade into the water and find the Rocks you can climb on in order to get to the ledge of the wall. Get on the wall and walk along that. At the end you will find about 3steps into the water or Rocks. Here you should be able to get on rather step then start to traverse the large rocks in order to get to the cove. Point of Rocks is there. Again low tide is best but your other option is to snorkel around to it. The rocks can be slippery so use caution.

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!
