Clearwater Beach, Clearwater

4.5
Spend a day on the white sands and in the gentle waters of Clearwater Beach, noted for its proximity to restaurants, shops, and hotels. You can choose to fish, kayak, swim, or snorkel in the calm surf, or stroll along the waterfront promenade and hop on a dolphin-watching cruise in the gulf. Quieter and less crowded than many of its neighbors farther south, this beach attracts visitors interested in grabbing a good spot on the silky sand and spending a tranquil day in and out of the warm water. Take advantage of the drinking fountains, shower nozzles, and bicycle paths, all part of a 2008 upgrade to this public beach. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Clearwater Beach and many more Clearwater attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Clearwater tour builder app .

Where to stay in Clearwater

If you come to Clearwater to enjoy the weather and explore the beaches, choose one of the city's five-star beachfront resorts. You can also stay close to the water while on holiday by booking your stay at one of the city's "condotels," where you can have all the expected amenities of a hotel with an added bonus of your own kitchen. Alternatively, you can also choose a more affordable old-Florida style beach motel or quaint bed and breakfast, providing all the comforts of home at the fraction of the cost charged by the big-name resorts.
