Point O' Rocks is definitely not your typical Florida beach, but rather a rocky little stretch of coast that's actually somewhat secluded. You wouldn't know of its existence unless you adventure around a retaining wall at the end of a beach that is popular with tourists and built up with hotels. Definitely walk around the edge of that retaining wall! There is a little nook of sandy beach, then an ancient reef breaks the waves for about a half mile south. There are homes lined up here, and several have steps to the rocky coast. At low tide, the impressive coral rocks are revealed along with a bunch of tide pools that are a must for curious visitors. It is also a great place for snorkeling and fishing!
