We stayed in a condo near Point of Rocks for the purpose of snorkeling there. The rocks are truly amazing and extend out for quite a ways. Not your normal beach attraction:) We were there as the outer bands of the hurricane were moving in so we were only able to snorkel on Sat. prior. Visibility was so-so, but we still saw some really cool fish. The water calmed down as we were at the end of our vacation, but we hope to return next year!

If you are planning a few days in Siesta Key, then stop by the Point of Rocks for a few minutes. It is a small, almost secluded like area next to the main public beach. Be prepared for slippery cement steps!

Make sure to wear old tennis shoes for safety. There are lots of sharp shells, but it is beautiful! You may need to climb, jump, or swim to reach where you want to be.

The beach is wonderful and having a rocky outcropping adds to the adventure. I like diversity in the beach area. You will never be bored.
