Life Style

Tucked away beyond the shores of Crescent Beach lies Point of Rocks. A series of limestone rock formations, here you’ll find the best snorkeling in Florida! Perfect for beginners, the waters are calm and only 20 feet at its deepest point.

Point of Rocks is so exciting because of the variety of wildlife you’ll see. In addition to schools of small fish, you’ll see crustaceans, crabs, snook, red sponges, and algae.

When you go, plan on bringing your own mask, snorkel, fins, and a diver down flag. Especially if you plan on venturing out into further waters, this flag alerts other divers you’re in the area.We highly recommend arriving early in the day. Parking at Beach Access 12 only affords 20 parking spots. Otherwise, you’ll have to park at a lot further away and take the trolley.
