If there ever was a name that perfectly captures the essence of a place, it would be Clearwater Beach. The beautiful sugary-white shores, crystal-clear waters, and an overall friendly and relaxed vibe make it clear why TripAdvisor named it the best beach three times in four years (2019, 2018, and 2016).
Discover what makes Clearwater Beach so attractive and irresistible and experience the beach for yourself when you visit. You may even want to turn your short stay into a permanent move to the area.
Clearwater Marine Aquarium
The Clearwater Marine Aquarium is home to not one, but two celebrities, Winter and Hope, two dolphins that starred in both “Dolphin Tale” films, and appeared alongside Hollywood luminaries Morgan Freeman, Ashley Judd, and Harry Connick Jr.
The aquarium also gives visitors an in-depth look at the world of marine life rescue at the onsite animal hospital. With plenty of animals and exhibits to see and activities to enjoy, Clearwater Marine Aquarium is a fun place where people of all ages can marvel at the beauty and complexity of aquatic treasures.
Sunsets at Pier 60 Daily Festival
Clearwater Beach gets even more exciting when the sun goes down. Until 9 p.m. at Pier 60, the idyllic beach transforms into a vibrant, festival-like scene featuring live music, crafts, and street performances. A tradition that has been going strong for over 20 years, Sunsets at Pier 60 Daily Festival is a free, kid- and pet-friendly celebration that operates 365 days a year, weather permitting.
Dining and shopping
When it comes to night outs, Clearwater Beach has its fair share of excellent open-air bars and grills. The company, the setting, the night view of the beach, along with cover bands playing popular favorites, all add up to fun, relaxation, and the feeling of living the best beachside life.
If you’re itching for some brick-and-mortar shopping, a hip strip mall houses a diverse selection of restaurants, beachwear, and gift shops. Another surf store on Beach Walk is just a short walk from anywhere on South Clearwater Beach’s southern side.
Of course, the locale’s biggest attraction is the beach itself. From the food stalls and shops of Beach Walk Promenade to the serene shores of Sand Key Park, beachgoers will find plenty of ways to explore and take in the different sights and experiences that make Clearwater Beach the quintessential beach destination in Florida and beyond.
Rent a cabana or a chair and umbrella and enjoy the bustling scene of the beach during the day. For those looking for a little more serenity and me-time, the north side of the beach offers the perfect hideaway.
