We recently spent a week at Clearwater Beach and absolutely loved it. The sand is white, clean and easy to walk in. The water is a beautiful color and fairly see-through (especially when the sun is shining). We were here over Memorial Day, and I will say that was the busiest and least fun of our whole time here.

We thought that Clearwater have a better restaurants and pub offer. We went to Frenchies, absolutely disappointed. Food was not good and margaritas bad! We went only one evening and that was!

We have been there during a Thursday afternoon and it wasn't summer and it was full. They have free parking and everything was really clean. Even with all of that it was really beautiful!

The beach is spacious and beautiful. We live in a beach community in SC but this beach is better than our home beach. The beach access if directly across the street.

The beach is beautiful and you will see marine life if you go early in the morning. It is however, a very crowded beach and gets extremely busy during the day. The mornings are nice and quiet.

First thing first, get there REALLY early if you don't want to spend 2 hours looking for a parking spot. Beautiful, clear and warm water, white sands it's Florida. There's not a single shaded spot, you either bring your own umbrella or be willing to pay $20 or $30 for one. Good experience in all.

I'm so glad we made the drive from Orlando. It was a little further than the beaches on the Atlantic side. But it was worth the drive. The beaches had white sand and the water was so warm! It was great! We will definitely make that trip again next time we visit. We ended up paying the $15 and parking... More

With white sand and crystal blue water, this beach is great for sun bathing, swimming, and watersports. The sailing here is great! Or you can just walk and enjoy the many shops.

I wish more people took care in keeping the beaches clean. When I walked in the morning I saw the cart going by sweeping up what it could of the trash, but there was so much. Its typical for a beach as busy as Clearwater I suppose, but wish they could enforce fines for littering.
