Please respect the outdoors by practicing Leave No Trace. Learn more about how to apply the principles of Leave No Trace on your next outdoor adventure here.

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!
