Bean point is beautiful- clearest water, whitest sand, best shell/sand dollar finds on the island! You can’t swim tho bc of the rip tides, but the beach connected to it is also pretty

Great little secluded area. Big point with deep beaches. Water is nice and you can see the cool bridge by St Petes Do not be in area without going to Pier for beer and food. One of our favorite places

It is a haul to walk out here but well worth the walk. Beautiful waters and manatees galore! There wasn't a day we went that we didn't see manatees.

I fell in love on our first visit and you will see why through the photos. The colors, especially the blues really pulled me in. The trees, the park, the water, agh it is all so beautiful. Clean, and very relaxing place to visit.
