Time and time again, Clearwater Beach gets ranked as the best beach town in Florida.
Its beaches are nearly as lovely as Siesta Key and still earn the moniker “Sugar Sand,” but the city sets this destination apart.
Spend your days exploring Caladesi Island State, playing at Clearwater Marine Aquarium, or lying on the soft sugar sand.
You could even book a charter from the Clearwater Beach Marina or cruise into nearby Tampa or St Pete.
Just make sure you’re back in time for sunset at Pier 60, the mainland’s answer to Mallory Square.
The “Sunsets at Pier 60” is a four-hour-long nightly tradition at Clearwater Beach.
– Variety of crafts and entertainment
– Incredible view of the sunset from a 1,080-foot fishing pier
