Clearwater resort is a beach lover’s paradise. Located on the west coast of the American state of Florida, it is bordered by the Gulf of Mexico.

What are the beaches like in Clearwater?
Beach days are popular on a Clearwater holiday thanks to the abundance of clean, wide sandy areas and warm water. With 35 miles of beach, 12 with Blue Flag status, means that there is a beach to suit every taste whether you want a laid back lounge in the sun or more adventurous water sports. The sea is calm and ideal for swimming and fishing is popular near to the pier.
Cycling the boardwalk or pedal boating across the waves are possible ways to spend your afternoon, or if deep-sea fishing is your thing you’ll find many boat trips are available on your holiday to Clearwater.
If you can manage to tear yourself away from the beach then a visit to the Pinewood Cultural Park is an excellent day trip. The 180-acre park includes a heritage village all about Florida’s past and the botanical gardens display native and non-native plants and animals.
Pier 60 is the place to be when evening draws round. Two hours before sunset the street performing begins and goes on long after the sunset is over. The relaxed, family-friendly activities hosted nearby are a perfect way to spend your evenings on your Clearwater holiday.
