Actually, there is a section of rocks running north to south along the water's edge, where the Point of Rocks starts at the end of a north seawall that comes out from the south end of Cresant Beach. Good snorkling at higher tides from shore...More

Good place to view the sunset for sure! Usually all we go there to do. We have gone early in the morning when it's quiet too. Relaxing

This is a must if your a shell lover like I am. Best place to find seashells on the island. I would suggest to wait for Low tide before tempting to head over there. If not you will need to bring your hiking or water...More

Low tide is the best time to get over to the point of rocks. If not you will need your shoes to jump up on the wall. If you love shells like I do then this is the place for you. Millions of shells. But...More

Pro: A lot easier to find than I expected. We did not encounter any angry landowners. Had shoes— a MUST Con: Choppy, murky waters made snorkeling very difficult. We could see more wildlife standing on the rocks than we did underwater. Lots of shells, but...More

Got there at 7 am with no one else out there, it was beautiful and made many beautiful pictures. It’s busy in the evening so I would highly recommend the am. Perfect for sight seeing and photos.

We thought this might be interesting. We were driving and could not figure where to stop. Where to park etc. lots of no parking signs up. Maybe it’s only accessible by walking on beach side ? It’s what I’ve read on other reviews that makes...More

We like climbing the rocks when the tide is down and seeing the birds and the awesome views of the rocks with the water. So beautiful!

Siesta Keys is a great beach, but the point of rocks is not worthy of a top 10 Spot. If you are there walk to the south end of the beach and take a look. But don’t go out of your way to see it.

Given your location, you would have about a 2 and 1/2 mile beach walk to get there. Remember you have to walk back also. That walking back can be daunting. And yes, if you drop your car off at the Stickney Point Bridge, it's... 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.
