Owner description: With hundreds of things to do on Clearwater Beach, the main attraction is still pretty much its near-perfect beach (USA Today readers voted Clearwater Beach "Best Beach Town in Florida" in 2013). Beautiful white sand and clear, shallow water make this beach an ideal playground for families.

Clearwater Beach and the Beachwalk offer the best combination of fun and "laid back" atmospheres around. The sunsets are breathtaking, the shops are cute, the food is excellent and the drinks are cold. What more can you ask for?

I am going here from many praises about the beaches in the area for being the best in the country. Well, how do I say it nicely without being so negative on the subject. The sands are as white as flour and that's a plus, but other than that, I can't or do have anything else nice to say about the beaches - from the Honeymoon Island to St. Pete in the south, the sand are filled with trashes and debrees and broken shell that I can't take my sandals off.

The Clearwater Beach is a wide, white sand beach that is very popular with locals and tourists. It's the place to see and be seen, all year round. If Tampa teenagers say they're "going to the beach," they are talking about Clearwater Beach, and my sons have attended many get-togethers with their friends there. It's a beach for all ages, though, and there is lots of people-watching. I like to walk along the water line, and Clearwater Beach is a nice long beach, so you can enjoy a long walk and get some good exercise. The parking is very reasonable, which you pay for at meters in your choice of many parking lots. We always have an old film canister full of quarters in our car in case we want to go to Clearwater and park at the beach. For a great beach restaurant experience, go to "Frenchy's on the Beach" and have the grouper sandwich, with the grouper blackened and grilled. If you park at a beach parking lot close to Frenchy's you can walk to the beach and the restaurant.

If you can go to this beach. It is on the Gulf and the water is clean and warm. The sand is white and very soft and fine. Great place to pick up shells or just lay about. The parking was cheap only $10.00 a day. Lots of fun things to do and the sunsets are beautiful. Best beach in the Us, nice area, nice sand, warm warm water, great views.

It was hot and the water was refreshing. Our visitors from the Allegheny Mountains of Pennsylvania could not have enjoyed it more. I did tell them that they need to quit coming to Florida in the Summer and try a January or February trip to escape the snows of Pennyslvania.
