Clearwater is yet another fantastic Florida beach situated on the barrier islands of the Gulf Coast. Located on the Pinellas Peninsula this white sand beach stretches for over 3 miles (5 km) along the calm, clear blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Clearwater beach is one of Florida's best rated family beaches and there is plenty to back this up. Along with the great amenities and safe swimming there are plenty of activities going on; beach volleyball, pier fishing, cruising the Beach Walk promenade.
At the heart of Clearwater beach is Pier 60. Every evening is the "Sunsets at Pier 60" show which features musical acts and performers, with the pier itself turned into a craft market.
Clearwater is very much the resort town, but in the good sense, with accolades including a "Florida's Best Beach Town" award. There are a host of good restaurants and bars along with some great attractions such as the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, home to Winter the dolphin of the "Dolphin Tale" fame. Backing on to the Intercoastal Waterway there is a large marina to park your boat, or if you fancy flying in Tampa International is only half an hour away.
