Great Beach. Huge Beach. Lots and lots of people too. Clearwater beach has all the great beach things to do including parasailing, surfing, tourboat rides, jet ski rentals, and sea shell collecting. Get there early -- like before 10 am on the weekends -- to get a decent parking spot and to avoid the line of cars going over the... More

Traffic was the worst... including trying to find parking and navigate the traffic circle. But once there, it was a nice beach.

I have been going to Clearwater for over 45 years. One thing doesn't change, the Beach is one of the best in the WORLD. I've been to beaches up and down east coast, many Caribbean islands, Mexico and several Hawaiian islands and Clearwater has the best white sand beach bar none. The water incline into the water is very gradual... More

Nice and unique vendors each night on the boardwalk. I found a unique present via the golf ball marker vendor that was an awesome gift for my father for his birthday tomorrow!

We rented a couple beach chairs and an umbrella for a reasonable fee. The sand was soft and beautiful. The water was cold still so I just walked along the edge of it collecting shells. While we were relaxing on our chairs we saw dolphins swimming right in front of us. Parking was convenient too.

Great day to relax on the beach. It was clean and fun was had by all. The paring right near the beach was very reasonably priced

I work for an airline, so I've traveled a lot. I've been on a lot of beaches but nothing compares to the beach in my own backyard! Clearwater Beach's first bonus is the sand, white and fine almost like baby powder. Just the whiteness and the brightness of it makes it feel clean and welcoming. Then there is the clear... More

90 minutes from Orlando and our feet were in beautiful soft white sand! We rented 2 umbrellas and 4 chairs for our family. Very clean and beautiful. We parked in a lot for $20 for the full day after originally finding a metered spot on the road. No one would give us quarters for the parking meter. Very odd. We... More

This beach has so much to offer! Let's start with the white sugar sand and expansive view if the Gulf of Mexico! It can't be beat! There is a beautiful playground for the little ones, and street entertainers for bigger kids (jugglers, etc.). You can walk to Frenchy's and have a great lunch or just hang out on the beach... More
