What is not to like?! A beautiful expanse of sugar white sand; Plenty of room to lounge, without feeling crowded. The water is so clear you can stand neck deep and still see your feet. Calm enough to walk in without being knocked down by waves, making it great for swimmers of all ages including small children. There was a... More

To the left of the "roundabout", the beach is crowded with partiers. To the right, it's crowded with families. Parking is always a hassle...if you get there after 10am, good luck finding parking. There are several places where you can rent a umbrella for $20/day. Also, you can rent different bicycles for various prices/times at a couple places on the... More

There's a reason I live in Clearwater...the beach! While there are many other great beaches in the Florida, what makes Clearwater Beach so special is it has everything from family fun to nightlife, and it's all balanced perfectly. Sugar sand and calm Gulf water makes it a wonderful place to enjoy throughout the year. When it comes to restaurants, you... More

This is one of the best beaches I have ever been to. The sand is so soft, like walking on carpet. It was busy because of 4th of July weekend, but it was still great. Parked in the parking ramp at $3.00 an hour. Don't go to Clearwater and miss this beach.

The sand is so soft and white. A great place to take a walk. It can be hard to find parking. Can get busy but worth a visit.

It's a nice experience .... Once, over crowded and overrated. It's a take on all the street acts you can find in Key a West. The pier is over crowded with vendors

This is one of the best beaches we have been to. It is very clean and the area is looked after well. It's quite hard to find a parking space but there's lots of private sites to park, we paid $20 for all day. We hired a Cabina and 2 deck chairs which cost $25. A good tip is to... More

I have no idea why this is rated as one of the best Florida beaches. As a FL resident for 37 years, this is the worst beach experience we have ever had. The beach is unbelievably crowded, there is no parking except one lot that is always FULL, some street parking with meters only, water is murky and cloudy, screaming... More
