“Pleasant enough, but not worth a special trip”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Visited Clearwater beach in October and passed by Pier 60 several times. It is a good place to get some nice sunset photos, but apart from that, just ok. The stalls selling their goods aren't really up to much and not worth a second look. Who buys souvenirs from their holidays made out of seashells? It would have been nice if there were food stalls, but nothing like that, just cheap tacky tourist stuff. On the plus side, it was clean and felt safe. Nice for a stroll in the evening but wouldn't go out of my way to visit. They showed films every friday and saturday night on a large inflatable screen, in the park area next to the Pier that seemed to be popular, just bring a chair or blanket and enjoy for free.

“might be better in season but off season was blah”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

The view was still great and the sunset was wonderful, but we could have seen the same sunset from our condo at Madeira. The pier itself had vendors lined up on each side and it seemed that a lot of the stuff they were selling was cheap imported products. We didn't see any food vendors which surprised us because we had heard that it was similar to the sunset festival in Key West. I guess that was just because they had performers. Two that we saw and they were both ok. The beach itself seemed nice and the pier was well kept and had a great view. I'd say if you are already in Clearwater go see it, but not worth the drive from the surrounding areas-at least not in the off season.

We enjoyed 3 nights at the pier for the sunset festivals. A lot of arts and craft type vendors, music and beautiful sunsets! Make sure you make it down there on your next trip!

“Very Clean”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

We rented fishing gear, and it was in ready working order. It was pretty well lit, and very clean. It has nice little shelters that you can sit under to get out of the sun. Its also wide enough to walk to the end without being worried that you';; get snagged by people casting out.
