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

If you are on Siesta Key Beach and decide to go on a long walk down to the end of the beach passing all the beachfront condos, you will come to a wall that has or at least had a mural painted on it. For...More

We were vacationing down in this area. We weren't looking for this specifically. We were just walking the beach and saw some people carefully walking out to a ledge on the side of a wall. The wall had a tall fence on top of it...More

This used to be the end of Crescent beach. For years I've watch people walk there, touch the wall, then turn for the second part of their walk. But this year, maybe due to the hurricane(?) the wall is under water. It is a good...More

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...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

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.
