“Walk the beach and "touch the wall" at Point of Rocks”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

This point of land is a good spot to use as a reward for walking the entire Siesta Key beach from the north end along the Public Beach access to the far southern point of rocks.

“Nice Shelling”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

This is the best place on the island to find larger shells. It's basically a reef right on the beach. I don't know if it's a natural reef or if it used to be something else like a road. Either way, you can beach comb, snorkel or just take a walk here. Keep in mind that some of it is private property so please respect the residents and other people living there. It's tricky to get to. I advise that you go at low tide. Don't try to climb the rocks to get around the bend from the beach. Just to straight down the steps and walk around the sharp rocks.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

Great place for shells. It's fun to climb up on the sea wall and walk to the other side of the rocks, where it is a different world from Crescent Beach. We saw a lot of people fishing around the rocks in this area. It's a great place to end a stroll on the beach.

“Nice for shelling, snorkeling is just OK.”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

We've snorkeled all over the world and had zero expectations for Point of Rocks. It lived up to that as we saw only three fish. Nice getting in the water though. Parking is tricky, just south of Old Stickney Point.

“If you like shelling....”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

A great place to go shelling especially at low tide. It's a short walk from the condo to the seawall.
