Waterfront and Beach Bars

Whose dream holiday doesn't include lingering over a cocktail while watching the sun, sand and water? At these waterfront and beachfront bars, you'll experience just that. The only problem you'll have is picking which one (or ones) to try before heading home.

1 Palm Pavilion, Clearwater Beach

You won't be at the Palm Pavilion for long before you realize you’ve discovered paradise. Locals love this open-air beachfront eatery not just for the sunset celebrations but also for the laid-back, down-home feel (not to mention the extensive menu).

Caddy's Treasure Island

Caddy's Waterfront in Treasure Island is one of the few beachfront bars on the Gulf coast where you can legally wiggle your toes in the water while sipping your beverage of choice.
