Cyclists and roller bladers glide along a winding beachfront promenade lined with casual seafood restaurants and cafes. Come sunset, Pier 60 hosts a nightly festival with street performers and craft vendors. In addition to its countless beach accolades, Clearwater ranked #6 on Tripadvisor's list of “Top Trending Destinations in the U.S.” for 2022. The gorgeous white sands and sparkling waters of Clearwater Beach also made Travel + Leisure's list of "The 14 Best Beaches in Florida" in 2021.
