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.

My family loves Clearwater Beach! We have visited other Florida beaches, but have decided Clearwater is the one we like best. We plan to vacation there annually.

We had a wonderful vacation and loved the option to rent chairs and umbrella if you get there early enough to find one! We rented fishing poles on the Pier and enjoyed our stay in Clearwater!

What a beautiful beach! The sand is like sugar. The water was calm & warm. Jet skis, paddle boards, & banana boat rides are available for rent. The beach borders a nice business district, which offers plenty to eat & fairly ample parking. Great place...More

This was a nice beach. A little let down. Water not as clear as I thought. Maybe time of year??? Sand hard in some places. I'll try Santa Maria Island next time or Panama.

I recommend people go there on Sunday because of music and drum circle. Best time ever. If you're looking for something to rent for cheap like boat, go to Jim store near by the beach

Stopped for a short afternoon visit. Found a street parking spot a couple of blocks from South Beach; seem to recall it was $2.50 for a couple of hours. Beach was clean and inviting, though (and perhaps it was because of low-tide) we were not...More

Enjoyed the beach. Nice waves to play on. Needs more and better restrooms. Nightmare to get on and off island. Not ideal for a day trip. Will only go back if we stay for a few days or more.

The crowd might have been there because of the sand castle festival and not sure if that's how it is over there on a regular basis. Still it was fun. The beach is beautiful, plenty of things to do.

As other review have mentioned parking is crazy. We ended up in garage parking at the Hyatt. $5 hour. We grabbed a couple chairs and umbrella for $30 a day. We had a good time even though it was very busy. Beautiful beach and warm...More

We rented a cabana with 2 chairs for the day. Made a great place to come rest. The beach was clean and pretty. Very nice place to play in the water.

Are there still things to do here in the off-season? We aren't able to get vacation until September and we've never been to Clearwater so I was curious.
