At the southern end of Crescent Beach is Point-of-Rocks where snorkelers have chance to see colorful sea life among limestone rock formations. Farther south on the island is Turtle Beach , which is a lot less crowded and a peaceful place to just relax and unwind. Along Midnight Pass Road to the south and along Beach Road to the north of Crescent Beach are several public gulf accesses with minimal parking for fishing, shell collecting and capturing a sunset.
For the energetic you’ll find excellent sail-boarding, fishing, scuba diving and snorkeling. If you prefer more relaxation in your vacation, a personalized Sailing Charter might be more enticing. There are about 1000 species of fish in the Gulf, bays, lakes, rivers and streams. You can go deep-sea trolling, drift fishing, surfcasting, bridge fishing or wading the grass flats. Non-residents need a fishing license unless you’re under 16 or on a boat charter. There are minimum lengths, limits and closed season restrictions. Licenses are available at the Sarasota County Courthouse or at local bait shops and sporting goods stores.
