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. Use our Anna Maria online trip itinerary builder to add Bean Point and other attractions to your Anna Maria vacation plans.

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
