“Must See”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

All you have to do is walk out to this beautiful point and you will have no further questions about the rating. We rented a home near Bean Point and walked that beach every day and most evenings. The quiet and beauty is rare these days on a Florida beach.

“"AWESOME" Bean Point Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

This is the best kept secret on Anna Maria Island. A short walk down the path from Anna maria Island Motel.

BEAUTIFUL sunsets and clean bay area for walking and swimming.

The Gulf water is a ways up the beach but well worth the walk.

Be careful of currents in the bay water!

“Private and Beautiful”

Bean Point feels like a secret hidden away on Anna Maria Island. Usually you can escape the crowds that can normally be found in this area, and gain a sense of privacy. :) very nice!

“Sunset and Sunrise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

If you want to see the most beautiful sunsets and sunrises in the world, visit Bean Point at the northern end of Anna Maria Island at the beginning and end of each gorgeous day. Beautiful white sand with crystal blue water, fresh Gulf of Mexico breezes and no crowds. It can not get any better than this.

We walked from Beach Cottages along the beach to Bean Point. Awesome. Beautiful unspoilt beach, lots of birds to watch, magnificent views, great shell hunting. Great, lovely day.
