Point of Rocks Area Beachfront Vacation Rentals
The Point-of-Rocks neighborhood on Siesta Key near Sarasota, Florida, takes its name from an outcropping of flat, smooth, limestone rock on the beach. Point-of-Rocks is adjacent to the south end of Crescent Beach, Florida. It is a very quiet residential neighborhood tucked away from all the traffic of the main road. The neighborhood has lots of trees and beautiful tropical foliage, and you may find it difficult to leave once your vacation is over. There are plenty of vacation rentals here within a few hundred yards of the beach. There are only a few with direct beachfront exposure because Point-of-Rocks only has a few hundred yards of beachfront. It is a small neighborhood of just a few square blocks.Choosing a vacation rental here puts you within steps of fantastic beaches, and you are still convenient to stores and restaurants. Sarasota and its cultural attractions, shopping, and nightlife is just a 5 minute drive over the bridge. If you want to do some snorkeling, or if you have kids that like to poke around in the shallow water, Point-of-Rocks is the perfect place. You are also right next to Crescent Beach, which is a beautiful white sandy beach. Just a few steps north gets you away from the rocks entirely. You can keep walking all the way to Siesta Key Public Beach if you want to. The beach is wide and firm and flat, so you can also ride a bike on the beach here. It's a great beach for running too. I used to come here to run at night occasionally. Many residents walk the length of the beach every day for exercise and relaxation.

|Here is a view of the seawall at
Point-of-Rocks. You can walk out onto the seawall which leads from
Crescent Beach onto Point-of-Rocks beach. When the surf is up, it may
not be safe to be on the seawall. During calm weather, the seawall
provides a beautiful view of the entire northern half of Siesta Key.

|This is Point-of-Rocks beach. The beach is rather narrow and rocky as you can see. The beachfront homes are elevated from the beach and are protected by a large buttress of limestone rock. Wooden steps lead from the beach to the homes. Further up the beach and around the corner is the Turtle Beach area.|

limestone rock. You can walk out onto the rocks. Snorkeling is the
best way to have fun here. The rocks are home to a wide variety of
fish and sea creatures.
