*Crescent Beach

Crescent Beach offers the same lush, white sands, azure waters and stunning sunsets, but it is relatively secluded and quiet as it has only one public access road. Located just south of Siesta Beach, the scene here tends to be more peaceful and private. The southern tip of this beach is called Point of Rocks, and is an unusual outcropping of flat, smooth limestone rock. The rocks extend out into the shallow water creating a great area for snorkeling and diving. This area is rich with coral rock formations as well as colorful and abundant marine life. Point of Rocks has been a landmark for mariners and, legend has it, as the starting point for maps to buried treasures plundered by pirates.
