“Love this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2013

This is a place more for locals, a little off the beaten path. The wild life that you will find when the tide goes out is absolutely incredible!

“Make a point to see Point of Rocks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2013

It was difficult to find a place to park but worth the adventure. Go during low tide and wade out a short distance, jump up on the sea wall and go around the corner, climb down a few rocks and waaa-laa......your natural adventure begins! This was an unexpected surprise. Fun for a couple of retired people! It would be great for families with kids over the age of 8 or so. Wear shoes, not flip flops.

“Adventure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2013

A bit of a walk, climb around a wall and over a few rocks in the water but was worth the effort for a low tide adventure with an 8 year old. Interesting rock formations, shells and shoreline to explore. Fun and free.

“Not for the handicapped!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

Point of Rocks is not for those who can't walk a bit from the road because there's nowhere to park...unless you live in a nearby rental. No parking on the street and the umbrella chairs are for residents of the condos only, so if you're bringing your beach chairs, coolers, whatever...take a wagon. Also, there are no bathroom facilities. Lovely place, but hard to get to.
