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)...

After renting bikes, we set out to see Bean Point, so beautiful, peaceful and clean! Great place for a sunset while on Anna Maria.

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

The sunset on the beach here is a must see at least once during your holiday on Anna Maria. The beach is always very tranquil and quiet, with few people walking and virtually no sunbathers. But be warned, DO NOT go to this beach with the intention of swimming as the rip tides are incredibly strong and you are not... More

I grew up on Anna Maria Island, and as much as I dislike how popular my little Island has become, I can hardly blame people wanting to enjoy the natural beauty of "Old Florida" and the unspoiled beaches. Bean Point is a must see on your trip! At Bean Point, the extreme northern tip of Anna Maria Island is where... More

Whoever has the great fortune to live here on Bean Pointe, I hope they realize it. It is stunningly beautiful and natural. Big panoramic views from Tampa to the Gulf. Huge beach space. Fantastic shells. I hope to one day retire here. Each year, we walk there and picnic on the beach. It is lovely.

Enjoyed a week in Anna Maria. Did not want to come home from vacation. The beach is beautiful. We walked around the total North End which is Bean Point. Stayed in Anna Maria in a quiet area, but only a block to the beach. Cannot wait to go again in September.
