"Florida’s Ideal Vacation Destination"
Clearwater Beach, Florida is the northernmost developed barrier island along the Tampa Bay Beaches. Unlike our other island communities, Clearwater Beach is part of the City of Clearwater. Today, fun 'n sun lovers come from all over to enjoy Clearwater Beach resorts, attractions, recreation, restaurants, and shopping.
Clearwater Beach has garnered a reputation as an ideal vacation destination for people of all ages, from all around the world. Families vacation here, as do couples, and young adults. From some of the best seafood restaurants the Florida’s gulf coast has to offer, to recreational activities that include boat rides and parasailing, to word-class hotels and resorts, Clearwater Beach offers something for everyone!
Although Clearwater Beach is a great place to vacation, it's an even better place to live, evidenced by the people who live here year round. The Clearwater community is friendly and socially responsive, and our City government is economically active and environmentally conscious. The City of Clearwater provides citizens with the programs and resources they need, and the amenities they desire.
Two hours before the sun sinks into the Gulf of Mexico people flock to Pier 60 on Clearwater Beach to salute the setting of the Florida sun. Come out and celebrate as local artisans and crafters offer handmade treasures and street performers amaze with spectacular feats of skill while you dance to the rhythm of live music flowing from Pier 60 Pavilion.
We hope you will join us to celebrate the sunset on Clearwater Beach!
Mayor: George Cretekos
