We spent the day at the beach and it was gorgeous. The sand is a soft white and there aren’t very many people that’s the best part. A few negative things are. 1 is finding a parking spot which is along the streets. And follow...More

Took some great photos of the dunes. Lovely walk along the shoreline. No crowds only scatters of couples mainly walking. A few people fishing. A bit better for shelling here than at Manatee beach. A number of entrances to the beach, some are relatively hidden...More

This was our first visit to the area. We had grade school kids in tow and were looking to find shells. Here are a few observations: 1. Parking can be challenging, earlier in the day is better than later to find a spot. They enforce...More

This lovely beach at the tip of Anna Maria is perfect. It is quiet and serene, a top spot for a sunset walk.

Bean Point is a great place to walk and explore. We love to go in the late afternoon and find sand dollars at low tide. It's quieter than the other beaches on the island and accessible via designated access points along the road. Park within...More

Very wide and low-angle white sugary sand. Free access from many side streets. Spectacular clean blue green water - like you are in the Caribbean. Very clean beach sand. Gentle surf. Some of the most spectacular sunsets in the world. Usually a happening with plenty...More

Beautiful! Lovely walk all around the tip of Anna Marie Island. The beach is pristine, love to see the waves, and hear the ocean roar. The natural beach is guarded and maintained. It is a happy place.

Bean point did NOT disappoint! It was kind of a trek to get there and finding a place to park can be difficult but what a beautiful beach!

We've vacation on AMI before, but this was our first time on the North end of the island. I highly recommend it! Bean Point and the surrounding beach is awesome. We found that North of Pine Ave. is very peaceful.

Wow! Beautiful beach! Great for watching sunset - when we were there is wasn't crowded at all, but I have heard it can be. We parked in the residential area, just a couple blocks away. The point of the Island is very natural. No hotels...More
