Great shelling around the point. Bring some sandals or sneakers - the shells are plentiful and tuff to walk on. Excellent shelling.

If only they had public toilets, it could be perfect. Huge beach, soft sand, beautiful water. As long as the red tide isn't happening, it is good.

Difficult to get to, must get in and out prior to hi-tide. The rocks are slippery, and edgy. My son took a hard fall and cut his foot open.Not much marine life was seen.

What a fun, easy adventure we had scaling the wall, down the four steps and through thigh high water at low tide to get to Point of Rocks. Wear shoes as the rocks were slick and the sand was rough due to the shells. There were tons of small shells to be had! Wished we had thoroughly read the reviews... More

I used to be able to get over to this area back in the day but now the tide over the years has changed the layout of the rocks and it is hard to get to the side with the rocks. it is more of a private beack front now and you just don't find the shells like you used... More

Scenic, good place for taking scenic pics and I believe snorkelling. Lots of big shells to be found in the mornings here.

Stayed on Siesta Key Beach for 8 years now. Snorkelling at Point of Rocks involves good timing, can be rough and murky. Need to go early am or a very calm day. Wear water shoes and climb around the wall, prepare to get wet waist high going around rocks at end of wall. Take a bag at LOW TIDE. Lots... More

The scenery is nice and the weather great, but there is not really that much here on this portion of the key. No matter when you go, however, it is better than the weather back home.

Went here to check it out and we did not have too much trouble finding it or finding parking. We did have to walk a bit down the beach. We made our way across the wall but it was not low tide, so we got wet. There were still people snorkeling there. You could see all the big flat rocks... More

It really was neat to see this setting sandwiched between two sandy beaches both to the north and south of it. However, if you want to get in the water in the morning during low tide. Otherwise the rocks would be under water and dangerous. Parking is IMPOSSIBLE. We had one person in our party drop us off and drive... More
