Clearwater Beach: The Beach of Your Dreams
With hundreds of things to do on Clearwater Beach, the main attraction is still pretty much its near-perfect beach (come visit and you'll see exactly why it was named No. 1 in the U.S. on TripAdvisor's list of Top Beaches for 2016 and No. 4 in 2017.
Beautiful white sand and clear, shallow water make this beach an ideal playground for families. But really, everyone loves a beach this gorgeous. From the activity along the palm-lined Beach Walk Promenade to the serene shores of Sand Key Park, you're sure to find your perfect spot in the sand on Clearwater Beach. Rent a cabana and beach umbrella from a local vendor, or walk toward the more residential north side of the beach for a little serenity away from the bustling scene of Pier 60 and Clearwater Marina. Getting there is a breeze, too. Stress less with free parking in downtown Clearwater and hop on the Clearwater Ferry for a traffic-free, sunshine-filled ride to the beach.
For good eats and entertainment, you won’t be disappointed with a night of live music and dancing at buzzing establishments such as Frenchy's Rockaway Grill, Shephard's Tiki Beach Bar and Grill and Palm Pavilion Beachside Grill & Bar. Your best bet for shopping in Clearwater Beach is at the Shoppes on Sand Key and the SurfStyle store on Beach Walk. And the annual Clearwater Beach Uncorked Food & Wine Festival is one of the year’s most anticipated foodie events on the beach.
