Easy to go there when the tide is low. Great seashell spot!
Wear shoes, the rocks are slippery and some of them are sharp.

The Point of Rocks is at the South end of Siesta Key Beach. It’s an excellent place to snorkel, fish, look for shells or just swim and relax. Depending on the Tide and the weather your day may be different from those I have experienced.

I enjoy the walk down the beach from our chosen vacation spot Casa Mar Condo Restort Unit 66. Usually the weather is very nice, the gulf waves gently lap the shore and the stroll down the beach for about 1.5 miles is very enjoyable. Shells can be found along the shore, just please make certain there is “no one home “ in anything you pick up.

At the Wall the snorkeling is usually good weather depending. I have observed lots of folks fishing and some even seem to have fish they keep.

This can be a fantastic way to spend a day on the beach.

It was a little diffucult to actually get onto the beach since we had our 2 younger children with us, but once we managed to get down this was an amazing place to find shells. We must have found hundreds! and even saw some little crabs too!

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 out a 100 yards, and then sourth about 1/3 miles to another beach area after the rocks. Numeous private access steps along the rocks for local residents to use. Keep in the water or on the shore at low tides. Use Goggle Earth to view entire area before going.

It has the same soft powdery sand as it is a part of the Siesta Key stretch - just further down. It was definitely less crowded than Siesta Key Beach but not much to see snorkel wise (which is what it was listed as-as snorkel spot). The water was too murky to see much. If you want the soft sand, less crowds, and don't mind not having a life guard then it's fine.

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 shoes and jump up on the wall. I did try to kayak over to it but that is not possible.

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 there is limited parking. Do not park across the street at any of the stores....you will get towed.

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 mostly broken. Honestly, I wouldn’t consider it a destination, but just a small rocky part of the beach.
