The true Beanpoint beach is at the very northern tip of the Island. Also note that the water between July and February can be murky,almost like river water. Between the end of February and earl...

What is not to like about the entirety of Holmes Beach with Bean Point at the northern tip! About one of the best beaches we have had the pleasure to walk.

We spent a week at My Sandbox By The Sea, a holiday rental in nearby Spring Avenue. You can walk from there onto the Gulf beach (Holmes Beach) in 10 minutes, then it's a very pleasant walk around the top of the island (Bean Point) back via the two piers that overlook Tampa Bay: Rod and Reel (basic snack bar)...

We spent 2 weeks on AMI and loved every single minute of it. We went to Beanpoint for the sunset and it is a must do while your here. The wide expanse of beach is so quite and the view is amazing. It's like your own little slice of heaven.

We walked on the beach every day while visiting AMI. We walked from the west side of the island around Bean Point to the Rod & Reel Pier twice during our week long stay. The views of Tampa Bay from Bean Point were awesome.

Bean Point is just one of the most lovely spots in Florida. The beauty and quiet of this beach on the northend of AMI is unparalleled. Not to be missed.

We took the free trolley from Bradenton for the day and enjoyed the visit. It was cool and windy but still a beautiful beach. Hope to visit again in the future
