Point of Rocks
Legend has it that in the 1700s, pirates hid their ill-gotten loot in these rock formations.
As a recreational destination on southwest Florida's stylish Gulf Coast, Siesta Key is the home of wildly popular beaches, parks, and related outdoor and recreational amenities. Siesta Key offers something for everyone in the family with its beautiful parks, state-of-the-art athletic facilities, and eight gleaming miles of spectacular, white-sand beaches on the Gulf of Mexico. All this is complemented on Siesta Key by some of the most desirable real estate and luxury homes for sale in the Sarasota area.
Today Point of Rocks, on the Gulf side of Siesta Key, is a hugely popular diving and snorkeling destination. The underwater limestone rock formations and coral reefs are abundant with some of the Gulf of Mexico's most exotic and colorful fish. And the adjacent Point of Rocks community offers some of Siesta Key's most desirable luxury homes set into a flourishing tropical island landscape. The Point of Rocks community also features the highest elevation on Siesta Key, offering additional protection against storms and flooding. While the homes at Point of Rocks are not waterfront homes, residents enjoy magnificent sunsets and views of the Gulf as well as the other delightful benefits of Siesta Key's tropical island lifestyle.
Graceful Luxury at Point of Rocks
Many of the beach-style luxury homes for sale at Point of Rocks have a graceful, "Old Florida" feel, although some of the older homes have now been torn down and replaced with more contemporary luxury homes. The community's landscaping retains a somewhat overly-thick, natural Florida look.
Residents at Point of Rocks are only a brief drive from vibrant Sarasota, southwest Florida's booming commerce-and-culture capital. Point of Rocks is also just minutes south of Siesta Beach, "America's Best Beach," and it's not far from the world-class shopping, dining, and stylish entertainment featured at fashionable St. Armand's Key. With luxury homes for sale in several styles and price ranges, Point of Rocks is one of Siesta Key's most well-liked communities.
