In Anna Maria, most west side streets on the north end from White Avenue to Bean Point have direct beach access. Parking is limited, so watch the posted signs.
The north end beaches of Anna Maria have no facilities but offer a natural, pristine beauty with huge beaches that extend around the tip to Bean Point. From Bean Point, you will see spectacular views of the Skyway Bridge, Tampa Bay, Egmont Key, and St. Petersburg. A perfect spot for photographing that incredible Anna Maria sunset.
