What travelers to Clearwater Beach are saying

Beach life is clearly the best at Clearwater Beach

Spread along a three-mile stretch of the Pinellas Peninsula, Clearwater Beach is a gem of the Gulf Coast. Beach life here embraces a blend of sugary-soft sands and peaceful sunsets with vibrant night-times and action packed pastimes. Play a game of volleyball, go dolphin spotting, be part of a local festival or simply take it easy in your luxury accommodations. With Clearwater city on your doorstep, you have the best of shops and restaurants on dry land, and sports and sunbathing on the sea's side.

Things to do

Clearwater Beach

Clearwater Beach is constantly named one of America's top beach locations. Paradise is found among its miles of soft sand and calm turquoise water. On average, the sun shines 361 days a year, and the climate remains mild all year long. Visitors sunbathe, fish, parasail, watch dolphins and show off volleyball skills.

The Beach Walk is a redevelopment project consisting of a winding promenade that meanders through the sand and resorts. Cycle, rollerblade or simply walk around, taking in the art work, palm trees and exotic landscape.


One of the most popular attractions at Clearwater Beach is the Marine Aquarium. You can pet stingrays or watch Winter the Dolphin, who sports a prosthetic tail and stars in the movie Dolphin Tale. Take the family to the Celebration Station entertainment complex, where you can play one of three challenging 18-hole mini-golf courses, enjoy go-karting or play a competitive round of laser tag.


Clearwater Beach is filled with specialty stores that provide an assortment of items including art, apparel and jewelry. The Cleveland Street District in the downtown area is ideal to explore the quaint boutiques. To find the perfect souvenir or beachwear, visit Mandalay Avenue or Gulfview Boulevard. The legendary Ron Jon Surf Shop is also a popular draw.


Grouper sandwiches are a bit of a specialty in Clearwater Beach, and you will be hard pressed to find a menu without this listing. Locals argue the Frenchy's chain, a Clearwater staple for generations, offers the best grouper anywhere. Thanks to the waterfront location, the area is also popular for its seafood, with eateries such as Clear Sky Beachside Cafe. Downtown has some of the best waterfront eateries in the area.

Where to stay

Whether you want to stay at a trendy resort, one of the family-friendly Clearwater Beach hotels or a budget accommodation, this area has them all.

The Hyatt Regency is one of the newest luxury Clearwater Beach hotels. It provides a pampering experience, complete with poolside cabanas and an on-site gym. Only a 35-minute drive from St Petersburg/Clearwater Airport and featuring 32,500-square-feet of event space, it is an ideal choice for business or special occasions.

The Sheraton Sand Key resort provides a Mediterranean setting with an ocean-front. Here you can get a Swedish massage or ask the concierge to organize an afternoon of scuba diving and parasailing.

Special events

In February, celebrate at Clearwater Beach Uncorked, where guests enjoy samples from local breweries, vineyards and chefs. There is also the Clearwater Jazz Festival Holiday, one of the country's biggest jazz festivals. This event involves four days and nights of free music at downtown Coachman's Park.

Best time to visit

Most visitors agree that the best time to visit Clearwater Beach is during the fall and winter. The weather is still warm, and most of the crowds have waned. Winter is a popular time to plan a getaway from colder northern temperatures too.
