Fist time I have been to Bean Point and what a view! Where the Gulf meets the Bay! Parking is scarce. We parked on North Shore Drive and French. There is a marked path to the beach.

A must when visiting AMI. Really, a must. Tranquil. Great views of Egmont Key, passing ships, sometimes dolphins too. Unsurpassed view of sunsets as well.

Always have to plan a sunset viewing party on this point whenever we are lucky enough to be in AMI. Take a cooler and some beach towels and just enjoy the view.

An short hike down a well laid out trail leads you to an unspoiled throw back to the Florida of yesteryear. It's the perfect place for a picnic. Bring your camera - some of the best beach shots you will find.

Nice spot to visit and take a long walk along the beach. Expansive view. Parking along street can be difficult though; discouraged by some locals

This clean, broad beach at the Gulf/Bay point of Anna Marie Islanf Florida. Not sure about suitability for swimming, lots of rip tides on island beaches.

Great view of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. Peaceful point of the island. We go back every year when we visit AMI to Bean Point.

Definitely worth the trip to the tip of the island. Easy to get to. Lots of beach access on the island.

This is a nice walk, but there are better beach walks. There isn't much to do on Anna maria island so maybe that is why this get such great reviews. There is limited parking so you might want to park at holmes beach and take the trolley.
