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.

Always love Clearwater.
Signs of work at beach which is to be expected in January getting ready for peak summer.
No complaints. Shops, food, beach.
Loungers and wind breakers to hire. Fun couple of hours.
Again the sand is amazing

Great manicured sand beach.
We went to the North end with our dog. Great clean beach. Easy access, parking is stupid high, but no fee to use the beach, so….
Enjoy

It helped that we had perfect weather but the beach and whole walking path was so perfect! We always felt safe, there was plenty of beach to lounge with a beach towel and it was so enjoyable to watch everyone having a good time.

Thanks to Southwest Airlines, our flight on 29 Dec 22 was cancelled, thus we didn't travel to Clearwater. We had a non-refundable New Year's Eve dinner cruise booked on Starlite Cruises, a reservation at the Wyndam Hotel and a rental car with Budget.
As soon as I knew we weren't going to going I began canceling reservations. Through texting I was able to let Wyndam know about the situation, and a kind rep took care of canceling our reservation. Fortunately we still safe from paying a penalty, but I appreciated the customer service I received from them. I cancelled the rental on line, knowing I would have a $50 cancelation fee on my pre-paid car. I was pleasantly surprised to see my payment, minus $50 promptly refunded to my account, as well a subsequent refund of the $50!! So nothing lost there.
Finally, Starlite Cruises. I had emailed them to cancel, so our spots could be used by someone else. Was aware of the no refund policy, but explained why we had to cancel. The next day I received a call from a very nice woman. She told me my $440 was going to be refunded! I was so thankful, as that's a significant amount of money to lose. I will absolutely give all three agencies my business when we reschedule a trip to Clearwater.
As for Southwest, they have reached out to refund tickets and give bonus points. They really screwed up, it was the perfect storm, but I'll still fly with them. Look forward to visiting when my husband gets past knee surgery!

I have been coming to Clearwater for over 20 years. My favorite hotel I have stayed at is The Edge. The new h and Gulf are beautiful . The sand is white and powdery. The water color, clarity, and calmness varies. I find summer to be the most tropical but check red tide reports if coming in the summer. So many great places to eat, shop, watersports, Clearwater aquarium, etc.Overall, great vacation spot!

How close the Hotel was to a short walk to the beach where you can rent a cabana very reasonably. You can get supplies and food to bring at the store directly across from the hotel.

We went to Clearwater Beach. The sand and water were beautiful, and the staff in gift shop were friendly. We look forward to another visit.
