We went here a few times this past week while visiting Anna Maria. The sunset from here is the best. It is beautiful and breathtaking and the walk out to the beach is awesome too. Lots of good pictures spots. You won't be disappointed in the sunset is a must see!

Beautiful in the early morning and gorgeous sunsets here on the north tip of the island. Good for shelling also, saw a stingray.

Take the time and enjoy the beauty this place has to offer. Swim at your own risk. The panoramic views will not disappoint you.
