Bean Point, Anna Maria

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.
