Clearwater Beach is one of our favourite beaches to visit when we are over in Florida – a good day on the beach to have a break away from the hustle and bustle of the theme parks.
Beautiful, clean white sand beaches, with cabanas and deck chairs to hire for the day. When you are ready for a break you can promenade along the ‘new’ Beachwalk which winds for about 1/2 mile along the side of the beach and through the shops and restaurants to Pier 60 where the daily sunset celebration is held.
We once visited on Christmas Day – it wasn’t quite warm enough to be a sunbathing day – but it was a memorable day with the beach to ourselves and the tinsel Christmas decorations glistening in the bright sunlight.
In Clearwater and neighbouring St Pete’s there are about 2000 restaurants to choose from. At Clearwater Beach we like Frenchy’s Rockaway Grill and Frenchy’s South Beach Cafe and the beautiful Hyatt Regency’s SHOR Seafood Grill which has excellent local seafood dishes on it’s menu.
