Point of Rocks is an exclusive neighborhood located on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico. Its name is derived from the rock headlands and underwater rock formations found in the subdivision that extend to the gulf. Florida folklore suggests that these were used as hiding places for all the loot pirates plundered from trading vessels that sailed across the gulf and Florida keys. These rock formations are perfect for diving and snorkeling activities as they are rich in limestone with deep crevices that are teeming with some of Mother Nature’s most beautiful fish species.
Today, Point of Rocks Siesta Key has a selection of fine beach-style homes set against a lush tropical landscape. Since the neighborhood has the highest elevation on Siesta Key, it is one of the most highly-protected communites against storms, hurricances, and coast flooding.

Point of Rocks is a secluded waterfront neighborhood on Siesta Key. It is located just south of Crescent beach and is named for the smooth, limestone rocks on the beach.

However, some of these have been torn down to make way for more modern structures. The landscaping is very lush in the Point of Rocks neighborhood offering overgrown, more natural look.
