Bean Point, Anna Maria

#1 of 9 in Parks in Anna Maria Island
Must see · Beach · Nature / Park
Relax by rolling dunes and gentle waves at Bean Point, one of Anna Maria Island's premier beachfront spots. Make your way out to the point, somewhat removed from the rest of the island's urbanization, kick back on the sand and enjoy the view over the sea. Alternatively, don your suit and make a splash in the shallow shoreline area or wander along the waterfront, making use of the surrounding boardwalks, footbridges, and sandy stretches. Park along one of the nearby residential streets for easy access to the beach, as the point itself has no dedicated parking spots.

  • Parking is difficult. Beach at the point is not very nice. We were looking for shells and found only a few. Not worth the trip from the lower Island  more »
  • Favorite beach on the whole island. Beautiful, less crowded. Dunes, white sand, and surrounded by water- don’t miss out!  more »
  • On the north end of Anna Marie Island, this place is paradise! Parking can be a little tough, but if you can find a spot you are in for a peaceful beach day  more »
  • The best sunsets on the island! The sand is like powdered sugar and the water is beautiful. Use caution with swimming because of potential rip tides but it sure is fun to wade in the shallows and look for shells!
  • This beach is a little piece of heaven on earth absolutely breathtaking. The water is gorgeous has many different colors of blue but the eyes seem to be fascinated with the turquoise or at least mine were
  • MOST BEAUTIFUL BEACH I HAVE EVER SEEN. You can’t come to AMI without going to bean point. There are always sand dollars, star fish, and lots of cool shells. It’s not very busy most of the time and it is a great place to watch the sunset. White powdery sand covers the whole beach, and the water is almost always clean.
  • What a view. The beach is awesome.
  • We loved it!
