Clearwater Beach

Clearwater is located in Pinellas County on the west coast of Florida in the US. We are on the Pinellas Peninsula between the Gulf of Mexico on the west and Tampa Bay on the east. This beach is popular with younger people and is the perfect base for day trips to Tampa, St Petersburg and Orlando.

Clearwater boasts an average 361 days of sunshine per year.

Sand Key Park

Sand Key Park has a lovely, large beach which is popular with families. Sand Key Park was opened in August 1984. Ninety-five acres are located on Sand Key, which is a barrier island between the Gulf of Mexico and the Florida mainland. Clearwater Pass (which leads from the Gulf to the Intracoastal waterway) separates the park from the resort area of Clearwater Beach.

Indian Rocks Beach

This beautiful beach offers a rare chance to surf on the gentle Gulf waves. Indian Rocks Beach is located on a barrier island on the West Coast of Florida, 30 minutes from Tampa International Airport.

Madeira Beach

Madeira Beach is located halfway between St. Pete Beach and Clearwater Beach offers a quieter alternative to these more populated beaches, making it an ideal vacation spot for the entire family.
You can see fishing boats unload their catches at nearby Johns Pass.

St. Pete Beach

St. Pete Beach is located directly on the Gulf of Mexico on the western edge of the Tampa Bay area, St. Pete Beach is only 45 minutes from Busch Gardens in Tampa and 90 minutes from Walt Disney World and Universal Studios in Orlando. This beach has excellent water sports facilities
