My family and I visited Bean Point while we were staying Anna Maria Key. We certainly enjoyed Bean Point and we are going to try to get back to the place before we leave this week. There is just so much to do and so little time. Bean Point is one of the places that we would tell other about... More

Would suggest parking in a designated spot on a side street or parking at pier and walking. Take one of the many beach access spots between houses and go until you are there. It was a little tricky, but it was totally worth the view. Glad we kept walking until we found it. Do not expect signage directing you there.... More

We started a wonderful morning at Anna Maria Island with coffee and biscuits from a wonderful local bakery and could barely contain our excitement about a visit to Bean Point. We followed the rules, parked where we were supposed to and put our shoes in a neat pile on the beach to go exploring...the beach is stunning, however those two... More

Bean Point is what brings us back to Anna Maria year after year. The most beautiful white sand beach you can imagine.

During our week stay on AMI we stopped twice at Bean Point, both times in the morning to look for shells and to just take in the beauty of the beach. The white sand at this beach is just so amazing and the blue water is so inviting. I now use that image as my happy place when I need... More

There is a nice view of Tampa Bay. The beach is not great here though. I didn't have the luck of seeing any sea animals when I was there. I would not make a point of going back.

I was here around 9am to walk the area and explore. I really liked the peaceful beach with it's lapping waves and abundance of life (dolphins, fish, sea gulls, salamanders, shells) and few people this time of day. The sand is so white and the water so blue and beautiful; of course a lot of the gulf is like this.

This beach is awesome. We had so much fun walking looking for sand dollars, seeing dolphins and stingrays. This is a must see place.

After reading all the hub-bub, wife and I just had to drive over the Skyway to see what this was all about. My oh my! On a sunny Sunday morning, the view was spectacular. Matter of fact, all the way around the point was just awesome. Going from a view of the gulf, then turning for a view of the... More
