Wow! watch out for small sting rays when you swim! You don't wanna step on one. Wind can pick up in the evenings and parking isn't the best... More

Well maintained, clean and beautiful. Some of the softest white sand I've ever seen (I have to say it is comparable or better than Grand Cayman). Good amenities, food and shopping. Parking can be difficult but not unreasonably expensive.

We visited on a Sunday morning and did not get there until 11.00. Parking was next to impossible as spaces appear very limited. We finally managed to find a space but were disappointed with the shops, they seemed very low end and there was also a limited choice of places to eat. We were looking for brunch but were less...

I agree with the reviews. This is one of the best beaches in the U.S.! The sand is absolutely amazing. It is soft, white and almost powder-like. The water is beautiful and the beaches are clean and well maintained.

Clearwater has a beautiful WIDE, soft sandy beach. No problem with crowding here. You can rent a cabana or bring your own umbrellas for when it is REAL hot. Good for walking although I haven't gone all the way up the beach. The pier is great, on weekends there are arts and craft vendors, music, things for kids. They also... More

I grew up going to Clearwater Beach. As soon as I hit the bridge I open the car windows and let the fresh salt water air hit my face. This beach is so clean, a great place to walk, plenty of restaurants to choose from and a great place to park your chair and just enjoy the day.

I love everything about Clearwater beach. Beautiful, soft sand and the ocean is amazing. I love listening to the crashing waves and watching the numerous dolphins that are so close to shore.

We visited on a Saturday during the high tourist season, so it was a little hard to find parking and a little crowded, but it's still a great place to visit and feels like a fun touristy sea town with lots of little shops to but trinkets and snacks, while enjoying a world class beach. Fun!
