I have had the pleasure of visiting the island for over 13 years and love Bean Point so much that my husband and I have this year bought a house here 3 houses from the point.

We had a great time at bean point. This is a part of the island where 2 currents meet and therefore is fun to float around and see where you end up. Lots of fish to see as well. Come here at night and you are guaranteed to find small starfish. I found 5 in one night

This is a beautiful place to hang out. Although it is smaller after a major beach erosion event a few years ago, it is still breathless and worth a visit. Bring you chairs and umbrella, you are going to want to stay a while.

This place is breathtaking! This year the beach was much bigger on the whole island, some type of beach nourishement earlier in the year. But it's beautiful, with white powder sands. Lots of birds flying around, and a beautiful sunset!

Loved this beach. Isolated and pristine. I see no reason to give this a good rating otherwise others will begin crowding it.

I have lived here since 1973 & swimming is my hobby. Bean Point is breathtakingly beautiful, but the rip currents & sharks are abundant at this beach. I have a 4 inch scar on my left calf that reminds me everyday to avoid swimming here... Chomp Chomp!

The tip of the island. One of my favorite places to go. To play or just lay in the sun. Water is always so beautiful........

Attended my step-daughters sunset wedding on the beach at Bean Point. Absolutely beautiful! The view was amazing and it was the perfect backdrop for the pictures!

Not so many people make it up there so its nice and quiet. Strong currents off the point so be careful since tides run around the point into Tampa Bay.

This is a beach and nothing more than this. Yes, the sand is white, the water is warm and clear but there are a million beaches like this one. Lots of birds though, nice if you like looking at birds. There are no restrooms or fresh water showers (the water is very salty), hence this beach only gets three stars... More
