    Soft white sandy beach! More crowded near &south of pier. Make sure to walk pier60 for 50¢, shop at/near RonJons, eat at frenchys for lunch, and finish at the palm pavilion for dinner/drinks at sunset

    You can't go wrong with Clearwater Beach. Great sunsets, many restaurants, shopping and entertainment nightly at Pier 60. Plenty of places to walk, just find a place to park and start walking!!!

    It is a fabulous place to relax and enjoy sunshine. We can swim at here and have beach party with our friends. If you cannot adapt sunshine, you can rent big parasol on the beach.

    Getting parking here is tough, if u get a spot make sure u get enough time on the meter, they are quick to ticket. Can't find a spot, park at Hooters on the rotary,u can catch a ride on their carts.

    Yesterday me and my family had a blast at Clear Water Beach! So here is my tip if, you don't get parking space at the beach, drive to the Hyatt Hotel and there will be ample parking space for you.

    Sit back and relax on 3 miles of sugar white sand and sparkling waters -- enjoy marinas, nightlife, restaurants, and accommodations ranging from high-end resorts to old-fashioned mom-and-pop motels.

    White sand, clear water, warm sun and a breathtaking sunset. There are many reasons why Clearwater Beach is one of America's Best Beaches! Take a trip down here and see for yourself!

    I've been to my share of beaches and this is one of the best. Beautiful white sand and gorgeous sunsets. Just watch out for the seagulls. They can be aggressive.

    The Bait House tackle shop & tarven at the end of the marine, by the round a bout, has great food. beer and wine only. Perfect low key place, trust me you'll love it.

    I'm not usually a big fan of the beach, but I always make an exception when it comes to Clearwater. Such a clean, gorgeous place, it's hard to not like it.

    The beach is infested with flying rats (seagulls). They take your food right out of your hand. Kill them off one at a time....other than that it's great!

    Stay at East Shore Resort and walk over to the beach. Quiet place with full kitchens to cook in, laundry and pool etc. 1 block from Cooters and Frenchys.

    Nice beach. I do think there are better beaches in Florida. Clearwater Beach does have non beach options for kids and adults.

    There's a sweet spot if you swim out far enough where you can stand on an island by the pole and trick people into thinking you can walk on water:)

    Pay the fee to park. Lot's of shops and restaurants to visit besides the beautiful beach and pier. Walk the beach to Frenchy's for lunch.

    Water is beautiful, beach is clean and everyone is so friendly (except the seaguls). The pier is jumpin' from 5:30 to 10:00.

    It's a very family friendly atmosphere, there are lots of fun things to do like volleyball, giant chess, a bag toss game, and a pier very nearby that includes a great waterslide.

    This beach is so beautiful. Hands down it blows away Destin and Panama City. The powdery white sand is so soft and beautiful!

    Swim out to the sandbar and you might see some dolphins jump out of the water!! There are also some huge waves out there.

    Go north at the traffic circle and chill near the hotels. Much more low key, not many showers, but very chill and barely anybody there.

    Really nice to go swimming there. The pier 60 has a playground for the kids and a restaurant/gift shop.

    The bathrooms (not the ones at the pier 60 concessions) are closed for the next 2 weeks or so. w/c June 8. For those of you who come early to run.

    The sand was soft the first couple of yards then it's hard packed. It also smelled & the water wasn't as raved.

    If you go on the boardwalk at night you can see fish in the water if you look down.

    Park in the Hyatt hotel parking ramp for $5 per hour. Finding a spot elsewhere is a long-shot.

    Great beach, near Sheraton Sand Key hotel, but a little walk to the ocean.
  • Heather S.
    Rent an umbrella and 2 chairs for 25 bucks. Well worth it, the price will go down after 1pm

    If this beach is too touristy for you, go to Honeymoon island. 1 town north in Dunedin
