This is one of the most beautiful white sand beaches I’ve been to. I have been to many beaches worldwide and this beach is my new favourite.. Too bad I live so far away...very clean. It wasn’t crowded the day I was there. Perfect to...More
Visited here during Christmas while renting a house in the area. Beach is absolutely a Normas and there is plenty of room to get away from many people that may be out there. Sand is very nice and the water is shallow and warm. Really...More
If you just went for the beach, it would be enough. It is better than most other parts of Anna Maria Island. There are lots of cool sand dunes and other areas that make it unique. But then you add in views of beautiful houses...More
There’s something magical about walking the access path - the trees have created an arch, it’s magical there are butterflies flitting about as you approach the wooden ramp. As up take a few steps up the most beautiful site appears.

Bean Point is one of the loveliest spots on the Florida coast, quiet beach with trees and rocks, you think your in the Bahamas, it just has a lovely glow and a great quiet beach to relax. During the week it is almost empty, just...More
Start your walk at one of the streets Gulf or Bayside. Remember the breakfast options - dare I suggest Ginny's & Jane E's Cafe and Gift Store at end of the walk and Rod and Reel, Two Scoops, The General Store and Deli, or depending...More

We parked on a residential street. The house we parked in front of, coincidently, a couple were sitting outside the home. We asked if it was okay to park there and they indicated it was. There were plenty of trades vehicles parked nearby. Check for residential parking signs, they may vary.
I think I've found a new favorite vacation place! We all absolutely loved it here! We stayed in Bradenton Beach and it was lovely! Every day except for Thursday (waves were rough) we went to the beach. We made it to Bean Point to watch the sunset and got some wonderful pictures. My 20 year old daughter and her boyfriend would take off in the afternoon to "explore the island" and immediately headed to Bridge Street lol. We ate at a few different places and I loved The Bridge Tender Inn! Best...More

I like Santa Rosa Beach too, but I would also choose AMI over it. Glad you had a fun vacation. AMI is special!
I've mainly lurked on this forum but thought I would post our trip report for anyone in the midst of planning that might be interested. My DH & I were traveling with our 12 month old DD. I am happy to report that our suspicions were correct. AMI was a GREAT place to vacation with a little one. We decided early on that we didn't want the hassle of a rental car. DH has been traveling on business alot & we spend Mon - Fri sitting in traffic. We needed a break from driving, driving,...More

Thank you so much for your kind words! It was a pleasure meeting you (it is always nice to put a face with the type :) ). I am glad to hear you enjoyed Anna Maria and hope that you will visit again soon! Regards, BeachBumsAMI

Bradenton Beach or further North?? (27 Replies)
I'm looking to rent a cottage for 5 days early November 2017. We are a family of 6 with 4 kids aged 6 to 14. Have found a GORGEOUS cottage close to Bradenton beach but I'm a bit worried that area is a bit too 'lively' for us. Found another lovely place on 62nd a bit more expensive and not quite as nice and then a third place very close to Bean Point, much dearer and not as nice as the other 2. Bean Point looks so lovely though. Any advice on which property???

We prefer the north end. You should know that the beach at Bean Point has no facilities but if the house is very close you might be able to walk home for bathroom, snacks, etc. If you share addresses someone might be able to help you a little better. We stayed in all three towns this winter and love the quieter north end. BB has lots of restaurants, etc. Someone else here mentioned they find it tacky. We did, also, but I am sure there are people who would disagree.
