Clearwater Beach

Clearwater Beach is a silky white-sand oasis along the warm, calm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. More low key than its southern neighbor, the bustling St. Pete’s Beach, Clearwater Beach hosts plenty of spots for kayaking, shelling, and biking. Families especially like its gentle surf, which is perfect for swimming and water sports.

Restaurants, shops, and hotels line Mandalay Ave., which runs parallel to the beach. At about 1 mi (1.5 km) long, the strip is easy to stroll. Day visitors should head to Sand Key Beach & Park, a wide beach for swimming and watching dolphins leap out of the sea. For non-beach activities, watch sea otters at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium or watch jugglers and magicians perform at Pier 60.

You can also get out on the water on dolphin-watching cruises or even take a pirate cruise. To get an overview of the area, jump on the Jolley Trolley, which travels around Clearwater Beach and up to Sand Key.

Practical Info

Clearwater Beach is about 22 mi (35 km) north of St. Pete Beach and 2 mi (3 km) west of downtown Clearwater, a separate city just over the Memorial Causeway (Hwy. 60). From here the road south is S. Gulfview Blvd., and north is Mandalay Ave., Clearwater Beach’s main drag. At only 3 mi (5 km) long, Clearwater Beach is easy to get around by car, bike, or by foot.
