Clearwater Beach, a year-round vacation spot, spans 3 miles along the coast of Florida. With its clean white sand and various attractions, this beach, located just 20 miles from the Tampa International Airport, makes the perfect vacation spot for any age group. Amenities on the beach and around the beach include: parasailing, pirate ship cruises, restaurants, and a range from high end resorts to quaint motels. The docking to the left of the photo is known as Pier 60.The pier is among one of the best city owned and operated fishing facilities in all of Florida. Outside of the water, this pier eventually becomes Causeway Boulevard.
