Point of Rocks, located just south of the Stickney Point Bridge, the most notable location on Siesta Key, is blessed with the soft, white quartz sand found on Siesta Key beach, but geologically unique and named for the formation of limestone rock that extends from the beach out into the Gulf of Mexico. This location has become home to a wide array of tropical fish and is not only a great environment for fishing, but the only real location for great snorkeling on the Island.
