Located on a barrier island on the west coast of central Florida, Clearwater Beach's white sand, pristine water, and year-round warm temperatures mean the area is routinely voted as one of the top beach destinations in the country. Aside from offering miles of picturesque beaches, the many bars, restaurants, and shops that line the beach front make Clearwater Beach holidays a popular destination for those looking for a lively daytime atmosphere and thriving nightlife scene.
With an average temperature of 23°C, Clearwater Beach holidays can truly be enjoyed year-round. However, with high humidity and the occasional rain shower during the summer months, most people prefer to escape the northern cold and visit between November and April, which is the peak tourist season. Clearwater Beach is serviced by Tampa International Airport, which is 20 miles away. As there is limited public transportation in Clearwater Beach - and the greater Florida area generally - car is the best way to travel around, though many amenities and attractions are within walking distance from the beach front. Alternatively, a fun way to get around is via the Clearwater Jolley Trolley, a colourful bus that connects Clearwater Beach with the surrounding neighbourhoods. Clearwater Beach is in the Eastern Time Zone (GMT-5).
Though it is tempting to spend your holiday laying on the beach, Clearwater Beach holidays offer plenty of activities for those looking for fun, with kayaking, jet skiing, and parasailing all available. Boat tours are also widely available on the beach and are a great way to observe the area's dolphins in their natural habitat, whilst those who want to visit Clearwater Beach's most famous dolphin, Winter, can do so at the nearby Clearwater Marine Aquarium. A highlight of Clearwater Beach is the daily 'Sunset at Pier 60' event, where street entertainers, artists, musicians, and vendors congregate at Pier 60 Park to showcase their talents.
