Find the rocks and you will be in a uniquely beautiful beach with amazing shelling! It is supposedly hard to find the Point o' Rocks beach but it isn't as difficult as described-- find it and be awed by the beauty!

We usually go to the less crowded Crescent Beach for hanging out, shelling, and sunsets. It seems to be more family and couple oriented than the busy Siesta Key Beach. Great for shelling, walking and of course sunsets. The sand is also the beautiful white sand and cool on the feet.

White sands and long walks on the beach. This beach is beyond beautiful and allows for you to walk and walk without limits. The gulf is gorgeous and both the public and private areas are stunning and well maintained.

Good for long walks. Lots of shell hunters. No lifeguards but that helps keep beach less crowded. Not far from most southern main siesta key beach lifeguards.

Wonderful ,talcum powder sand beach. The surface never gets too hot to walk on . Stroll alongside the gentle surf, jog , run or simply bask. At approx 4 miles from end to end it is ideal for a full work out or to be lazy. Thee are lifeguards on duty at the busiest areas and generally it is safe... More

We enjoyed 2 great days on this beach, from our hotel on SaraSea Rd. Third day was very windy and we used the pool instead, but on the other days, the AM water was great for kayaks and paddle boards. Saw dolphins playing with kayaks. There as a sailboat to rent also.

Sand like pure white flour and clear water! Nice residential area with beach access only in limited areas or for residents. A bit less crowded than Siesta beach. This is a great place to stay but I would not want to drive here and try to find a place to park and get to the beach. Turtle beach, just to... More

Beautiful pristine sand - lovely swimmable waters, and miles of walking. Wonderful views of sealife - pelicans, gulls, pipers, and dolphins. Crowding is never an issue.

For the first beach I have ever gone to in Florida, it was amazing. The water is clear but not as clear as other beaches in Florida. The marine life was incredible. A dolphin surfaced by me only 5 feet away. I was able to see a manatee swimming not even 20 yards from shore. If you enjoy fishing I... More
