About
With hundreds of things to do on Clearwater Beach, the main attraction is still pretty much its near-perfect beach (USA Today readers voted Clearwater Beach "Best Beach Town in Florida" in 2013). Beautiful white sand and clear, shallow water make this beach an ideal playground for families.

Best Beach of Florida Indeed
Jul 2021
White sands, cloudy beach days and one of the best family beaches one can experience. We rented a cabana package that included chairs and tables. This is one beach that we found to be bustling with party life in the north side and serene and quietude on the south south. If you are driving, then just upload the parking app and finding an available spot is no problem. However this beach is mostly crowded so unless you reach there much ahead or before 10am, you may have to park in the Muti-floored parking in the north side. The beach has easy access at several points. We enjoyed every bit of stay during our vacation.

Beautiful Beach, But Too Crowded
Jul 2021
The beach itself is pretty, wide in some areas, with nice quiet warm water - almost like a lake. It is too crowed, though, and there are people who do put on loud music, so there is a mixture of different types music, plaing along side each other, which is annoying since people are almost on top of each other. Wish people knew that earbuds have already been invented.

The beach rental, if you don't have your own umbrella and chairs, is prettry reasonable for the day.

Bring your Food! That's what I always tell people. I I have been going there for the last 15years and almost nothing changed (food wise) I just spent 3 days there and we had to go find a Restaurant in Clearwater (Clearwater and Clearwater Beach are not the same) 20 minutes away☝️ There is just ONE eating place on Main Area, Gulf Blvd! It's a small Mac Donald's.

Beautiful Beach

We love Clearwater Beach, it is like a tropical vacation in the USA. Highly recommend a trip to see. Totally deserving of the title of "One of the Best Beaches in America",

Too crowded and not enough parking spaces
Jul 2021
Very crowded, heavy traffic, not enough parking and if you are lucky to find a space it is very expensive.

Yes, yes, yes!! Lovely beach
Jul 2021 • Friends
1st time @ Clearwater Beach. I was already saying, I want to return before I got out the car. Lovely, gorgeous, diversity, great shops, pizza, etc.

$30.00 parking is a rip off but whatcha gonna do if you need to find parking? 😏

Northside was pretty quiet.
Southside was popping!

Overall, I plan to return soon.

Not worth it!
Jul 2021 • Family
Terribly crowded. Couldn’t find a parking place. People everywhere. Not worth it. Find somewhere else. We have been here previously a few years ago. Has really gotten unbearable to drive to.

RED TIDE DEAD FISH
Jul 2021 • Couples
They try to pick up the dead fish but the smell and the color of the water is toxic. Never seen it as deadly. Don't go in that water! Dead birds, dolphin and manatees. People shouldn't be exposed to it either. Coughing, eyes burn. Shame on anyone along the west coast for taking people's money.....

An ok Beach ,but not the best I have been to
Jun 2021
Way to crowded. We went around 1pm one day and could not find a parking place. Had to leave and come back the next day early. It was an ok beach ,but not the greatest. I will never go back here again. It was pretty ,but just a regular beach to me and nothing special at all. The positive I can give it was that we did see a couple of dolphins at the pier. Also saw some bird stealing fishermen's bait and slowly walking off. lol
