Owner description: 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.

“it had to be done”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

As a tourist ,youre always looking for new beaches to check out ,and when we were told by a family member that clearwater is the enniscrone to americans we had to check it out. We purposely took that route to go and see it. It was a little shelly for my liking however I did manage to cap a good 4 hours in 32 degree (Celsius) heat to enjoy it. It was quite busy, as expected on a weekend but there was plenty of room to towel down and lay out. The water was warm , the crushed sea-shells below my little feet was a little sore but I got used to it after a while. I think it may be a little over-rated, but I enjoyed it.

“Great beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

Beautiful beach on the Gulf Coast.

Miles of white sand. It gets busy so park early and get set up ahead of the crowd.

“Great beach”

The beach was very clean. Tons of seashells to find which was fun for the kids! Beautiful white sand! It was crowded by the weekend but through the week was very peaceful! A great vacation spot!

“Can't figure out how it got it's name”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

let me start by saying I love the Clearwater area.there is lots to do or not do, depending on what your preferences are. I have traveled to this area 4 times, one in each season. As a woman traveling alone I have felt very safe each time I visited.Choice of hotels range from very upscale to old fashioned mom and pop.I prefer the latter because I go for the beach! why spend so much for something you hardly use? B
y the way,most of those places you won't find on hotels.com!
Although all the areas beaches I have visited are beautiful and very clean,the water is far from clear and calm. As soon as you walk into the water you lose sight of your feet! and the waves! I am not a tall person, maybe five foot five, but trying to go into the water, waves engulfed me over my head knocking me over. So, being confined to the beach,I prefer Fort Myers Beach area which is a great place for shelling

“Great beach, way too crowded....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

The gulf coast has some of the best beaches on the planet its just on some days on Clearwater Beach you'll have a hard to experiencing it due to the crowds of people on this beach. Go a little north or south for some space.
