#1 Beach in the country
Clearwater Beach is home of pristine white sand beaches, clear gulf waters, warm sunshine, and plenty of hospitality. As a year round top vacation spot, Clearwater offers a seemingly endless supply of sun and a mild and temperate climate. It is ideally situated on the Gulf of Mexico on Florida's west coast, offering something for every visitor. Clearwater Beach dazzles with impeccable beaches and inviting waters. Caladesi Island, off the north end of the beach, was recognized as the nation's best by Dr. Beach (2008).
Clearwater Marina boasts of being one of the most versatile and perfectly equipped marinas of Florida. Clearwater Marina has the complete suite of all the coastal activities that a visitor can aspire to enjoy. The long list of impressive features that invite a visitor to the Clearwater beach includes some of the finest fishing charters, sight-seeing boats, parasailing, sailing charters, dinner cruises, personal watercraft, dolphin tours, restaurants, nautical shop, bait house, gift shops, mini-mart and much more all in Clearwater Beach. The unending hours of entertainment, fun and exciting engagements of the Clearwater Beach has made it a popular destination even for several frequent visitors year after year. Some of the fantastic locations at the stretch of Clearwater beach sands are the Clearwater Marina, North Clearwater Beach, Pier 60, and Sand Key Beach. It is highly interesting to list some of the most celebrated features of the Clearwater beach and its activities.
Pier 60 is the most famous sunset celebration typical to Clearwater Beach. This daily event organized for four hours in the evenings two hours before sunset until two hours after sunset is a classical event and one of the major attractions at the beach. Heralding the scenic beauty of the coast during the sunset, the event brings forth some of the exciting performances and live shows by artists, musicians, jugglers, magicians and crafters.
All of our vacation rental homes are located a short distance to Pier 60, in addition the jolley trolley has several stops throughout Clearwater Beach. On beautiful Clearwater Beach there are countless activities to keep the most energetic vacationer entertained. How would you like to begin your day? Maybe a swim in the gulf or a ride on a jet ski? Considering the thrill of parasailing before a relaxing lunch at one of many fine restaurants? Perhaps after lunch you'd like to visit our Clearwater Marine Aquarium. This unique aquarium is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and release of injured marine animals, public education, animal assisted therapy, and research. A "must see" is Winter the Dolphin" who lost her tail in a crabbing pot while just a baby and was rescued by the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. The aquarium also partners with Sea Life Safari which tours a protected bird sanctuary nestled in the mangroves. This tour also includes a shelling excursion on beautiful Compass Island. There are plenty of other activities to keep everyone happy and busy. We offer deep sea fishing, boat rentals, pirate cruises, and if you want something a bit more tame, maybe a game of miniature golf would be just the ticket! At the end of your day of "fun in the sun", why not take advantage of one of our sunset dining cruises? (Of course, you may also take their luncheon cruise which is the Dolphin Watch cruise). Either way, you'll enjoy good food and a lovely, relaxing ride on the water.
