Clearwater Beach, Florida

1 2 3 4

Clearwater is an easy 20 mile drive from Tampa International Airport and even closer to Clearwater/St. Petersburg International Airport. The beach boasts sugar white sands that you will only experience here. Whether your pleasure is world-class fishing charters, relaxing on the beach, unique food and beverage experiences, or visiting one of many spas, there is something for everyone.

Visit Clearwater Marina, where you can take a sunset sail, dinner cruise, dolphin excursion or go deep sea fishing. Visit the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, go kayaking to Caledesi Island or play a round of golf—the opportunities are endless. Visit Pier 60 for one of the nightly festivals and of course, you cannot leave without visiting local celebrity, Winter the Dolphin.

Even with all the activities Clearwater Beach has to offer, the best part of your trip might be as simple as a stroll on the beach at sunset, but if you want more, you’ll be just a short drive away from many other popular Florida attractions, like Lowry Park Zoo or Busch Gardens in Tampa, or the Salvador Dali or Chihuly Art Museums in St. Petersburg.
