The Beast and Cleanest Beach in Florida, we recently visited Clearwater Beach and loved every day we were there, even when it rained we had a great time checking out all the shops.

Soft, fine white sand, the beautiful Gulf, uncrowded, clean rest rooms. A short walk to a large choice of casual restaurants.

Clearwater Beach is a "white sand" beach and is one of the most beautiful beaches in the State of Florida. Other beaches, such as Daytona Beach, allow motor vehicles to drive on the beach which, in my opinion, ruins everything. Also, Clearwater Beach is on the Gulf, rather than the ocean, which results in warmer water, calmer water, smaller waves... More

Just came back from a regular visit to the Tampa Bay area. Friday, went to Clearwater Beach a stark and welcomed contrast to my Belmar, NH beach. Not crowded, NO CHARGE for beach access, plenty of parking and no hassles. NJ beaches like Belmar had their beaches replenished. The sand in Belmar is orange and full of pebbles. The pebbles... More

This beach is relatively family-friendly and a great introduction to visitors on Florida Gulf-side beaches because of its plethora of restaurants (both local and chains), shops, waterside activities, and bars (and clubs). Plus the Lifeguard stations and trash bins conveniently placed throughout make this place even cleaner and supposedly safer. Unfortunately, sometimes the crowds are too much and there’s no... More

Beach is amazing! Soft white sand and beach area is rather large. Parking can be hard to find on busy weekend, but worth it! Plenty of food and shopping in the area.

I went to the Clearwater Beach County Park and was quite impressed. It was only $5 to park and the bathrooms were right off the beach. We rented a kayak right on the beach and took a little trip out to the ocean where we saw DOLPHINS! They were super close to us, playing, and jumping completely out of the... More

I haven't found anything wrong with this beach. The sand is the softest, the water is the warmest, and there is so much to do. I love walking up and down from the pier to all the shops. The restaurants in the beach are great as well. I've gone almost every weekend this summer.
