On crowded siesta key, nobody seems to know about point of rocks. It is difficult to access, since the southern end is in a gated private club (Sanderling Club), and the northern end has a difficult homeowner who puts up fences. Never-the-less, Florida grants ALL access to "wet sand," which means if you can swim or kayak or paddle board... More

Red tide for two weeks put a damper on this and siesta beach, crescent beach, turtle beach was all awful. Dead fish everywhere on shore, people coughing, respiratory issues, smells of dead fish, really disgusting. We had to stay away. But week three it all cleared and except for a few dead fish, paradise returned.

Very cool area, maybe not as exciting as the hype- but well worth the time to visit. Very difficult to find a place to park, so be prepared to walk.

We stayed just on the north side of the point on point of rocks road. We did not realize you could walk along the rim of the house to the rocky area until day 2. Tons of shells after a high tide. East winds are best to cut down waves. Lots of tiny crabs and other sealife.

Just about anyone who is a regular beach walker makes the walk, jog, amble to the wall at the Point of Rocks, which is a logical turn around point. At low tide one can make their way around the Point and continue long the beach. There are often egrets and herons feeding among the rocks. It is very common to... More

So when you get here it's a little different and requires some walking! No public parking, you have to park at shops on midnight pass and walk. Once you get there look to the left and you will see a private house with a retaining wall around it. Here is where it gets a little adventurous! Get up on the... More

This is a great place for shell collectors! We have stayed on Cresent Beach for the last five years and I always walk down to The Point to look for shells. People who walk the beach ( and there are hundreds) usually turn around before they get this far. Weather can affect the shells but i usually find some "different"... More

You will know when you get there and hit the wall. When the tide is low you can walk around the wall in the water to the other side. Beach shoes are best as things get rough on the feet. You will find shells galore among the rocks. It is also a great fishing spot.

Great shelling around the point. Bring some sandals or sneakers - the shells are plentiful and tuff to walk on. Excellent shelling.
