Those who book Clearwater holidays should note that Florida is five hours behind GMT. The climate in Clearwater is a tropical one, and as it has a higher average rainfall than other parts of the USA—most falling during the summer—May or October might be the best months for Clearwater holidays.
Clearwater Beach at Causeway Blvd is one of Florida's most popular beach destinations; 2.5 miles of pristine white sands and clear gulf waters. At the beach there are a variety of water sport rentals such as sailboats, jet skis and kayaks. Holidaymakers can take a make-believe pirate ship or dolphin cruises from the beach. Regular festivals are held at the Clearwater Beach Pier 60 which also includes a sunset cinema with popcorn and soft drinks. The Beach Walk, just off Pier 60, has lush landscaping; and is a great spot for fishing.
Near the beach is the Clearwater Marine Aquarium which has aquatic wildlife such as dolphins and sea turtles. Make a trip to the SimCenter where visitors fly 737 aircraft simulators. At the Moccasin Lake Nature Park nature trails pass through diverse natural Florida habitats. Clearwater also has many championship golf courses such as the Belleview Biltmore Golf Club, Cove Cay Country Club and Chi Chi Rodriguez Golf Club for keen golfers to enjoy during their trip.
