Popular places for photo shoots on Anna Maria Island
Anna Maria Island offers so many beautiful locations for amazing photo opportunities. You can’t throw a seashell without hitting a great spot! Simply head to just about any beach access and you’ll find the perfect background for your pictures. There are a few spots that we suggest for photos as listed below.
The tip of Anna Maria Island is called Bean Point, and it’s also truly a stunning location for photos. This area of the island offers few parking spaces, and is less crowded. Get views of both Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico as you walk around north end. There are gorgeous wooden boardwalks, scenic dunes and the Island’s notorious Australian Pines to serve as your backdrop on Bean Point.
To the southeast of Bean Point you’ll find Bay Front Park. This area of the Island offers a narrow strip of beaches looking onto Tampa Bay with great views of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, Anna Maria City Pier and Rod & Reel Pier.
Both the Anna Maria City Pier and the Rod & Reel Pier are excellent places for family photos. located just a short walk from each other, these piers overlook the bay side of the island, and hold a great deal of island history.
Any gulf beach at sunset is beautiful, but we recommend Anna Maria gulf beaches like those found on White Avenue. Anna Maria gulf beach accesses have lush Seagrape trees, green beach foliage and rustic wooden boardwalks leading over sea oat sand dunes. Your photographer is sure to capture the perfect sunset image no north end beaches.
Egmont Key is a small island State Park only accessible by boat. Located off the northern tip of Anna Maria Island, Egmont Key offers a historic lighthouse and old fort ruins along with gorgeous coastline. This is also a great place for pictures with Anna Maria Island photographers.
