7. Clearwater Beach Causeway
The causeway to the beach is a long stretch between open waterways of Clearwater Harbor. The wide walking and biking path makes the trek a pleasure. A relatively tall bridge marks the border between downtown Clearwater and the Clearwater Beach causeway. Watching the boats go by from the bridge is a favorite past time. The causeway will also take you past Clearwater Marine Aquarium the home of Winter the dolphin from the Dolphin Tale movies.
6. Clearwater Marina
Another short but enjoyable walk is at the Clearwater Marina. The docks host all types of charter boats, harbor tours, dinner cruises, party cruises, fishing excursions, and boat rentals. The atmosphere is lively on weekends and even those not looking for a boat ride will find the goings-on entertaining.
5. Mandalay Avenue
The northern end of Clearwater Beach begins with a treasure trove of gift shops, cafes, restaurants, bistros, and novelty shops located along Mandalay Avenue. Walking this relatively short stretch is always a pleasure, especially for those seeking the vacation-town experience.
4. Pier 60
While Pier 60 doesn’t make for a long walk, it is still a good one. Centrally located on Clearwater Beach, it provides excellent views of the beach from an elevated position. A gift shop sits mid pier where visitors can buy T-shirts, seashells, or other vacation souvenirs. The real treat comes at sunset, when Pier 60 hosts a four hour festival in which vendors offer every type of knick knack imaginable. On weekends, street performers join the sunset festival.
3. Beach Walk
Beach Walk is a boardwalk-style sidewalk that runs along the beach and beachfront shops of Clearwater Beach. It is located on the southern half of Clearwater Beach, referred to locally as South Beach. It takes visitors past some of the best stretches of sand Clearwater Beach has to offer, as well as some of the best gift shops and restaurants.
2. Caladesi Island walk
The walk northward on Clearwater beach is the stuff vacation memories are made of. The long stretch of beach is a peaceful white sand paradise. The further you go, the fewer people you will see, until finally you reach the remarkable powdery white sands at the tip of Caladesi Island. This is a long walk with water bottle recommended, especially in the summer months.
1. Clearwater Beach
Walking along the shoreline of Clearwater Beach is the perfect activity for locals and visitors alike. Collecting shells, dipping your toes into the gentle surf, and experiencing the sensation of the soft white sands on your feet are the highlights of this fantastic walk.
