Clearwater beach is over an hour away from downtown Tampa. It has wonderfully fine and white sand and slopes very gently into the sea. On one side you have miles of beach and on the other, it is full of bars, restaurants, shops, and hotels. During the peak season, however, the beach can get very crowded and the parking area is full.

2. Sand Key Park

This is one of the most beautiful recreational areas in Florida. The beach is huge. It has great, fine sand and everything is very natural. Here, you can see beautiful sunsets, watch dolphins, if you are lucky, and let your mind wander. It’s much quieter than Clearwater Beach and parking isn’t a problem either!

3. Pier 60

A very nice place with an excellent view of the city and the entire length of the beach. You can have a lovely walk here as the sunset from the pier is also beautiful, with several artisans exhibiting their work. At night, it turns into a fun evening, amazing music, and markets.
