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

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...More

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

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.

I just noticed TripAdvisor user Taylor A. gave a great answer to this question over a year ago. I googled it and Taylor A. is correct. Beach Access 12 is directly across from "Old Stickney Point Road." Turn left on to... More
