Quiet!

We are staying at the north end of AMI for three weeks. Each morning we head to the beach for a quiet, almost secluded walk. Just lovely.

This is my favorite spot in all of Florida! Old town charm, antique shops, wonderful places to eat, and fun place to explore on bikes. Easy going and no fuss!

I spent an hour or two here with my boyfriend. Though the water was quite chilly (we visited in December), the beach was beautiful, far from any of the bungalows or houses. I would definitely recommend!

What a beautiful, relatively uncrowded spot to enjoy the gulf waters off of Anna Maria Island. With limited public parking in the neighborhood, we imagine it would be hard to find a spot for a car in the high season. The west side of Bean Point has a wide, wonderful, white soft sand beach, while the eastern side has a... More

Bean Point is a transitional spot between the beach side (west) and the bay side (east) of the island. It features a tree lined area of the beach. Its a good place for photos of the beach and of the land mass across the bay. We walked from here down to the Rod and Reel Pier, which you can see... More

This beach is pretty, the fine white sand is beautiful but the local magazine said that was the place Togo for shells and it absolutely is not! A lot of algae floats along the shoreline and the shells there are pretty beat up. It is not crowded and has more natural landscaping...

First trip to Anna Maria Island and this is the most stunning spot. Wide beach area at the northern tip of Anna Maria. It seems like a whole separate world; so pristine with white soft sand. A new favorite place of mine.

Well, it's a really good beach with really nice sand. Above that, the water is nice and the sunsets are marvellous (are there stronger words?). Not too crowded, either. Worth a detour.

If you go to Anna Maria Island and don't spend a day at Bean Point you should have your IQ checked. The tip of this island is truly an unbelievable experience. From the view to the water to the scarcity of people this will be the part of the trip you will remember the most. You will have to park... More
