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

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.

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...More

We spent a lovely afternoon snorkeling just off Point of Rock. There was vibrant orange coral and a nice variety of tropical fish. The sand on the adjacent beach is white, fine and powdery. .

Gorgeous spot on Siesta Key! Beautiful properties, some of which are part of a gated community. Quaint, beautiful part of the island.

We went in High Tide, while the waves were rough and covering the rocks. I would say that it would be much better to view when the tide is low.

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.
