2021 Clearwater Beach Vacation

2021 Clearwater Beach Vacation

2020 is almost over. Soon it will be 2021. As you plan for 2021, you may be thinking about family vacations. A Clearwater Beach vacation is a beautiful place to take the family. It’s well known as one of America’s Best Beaches.

Clearwater Beach gives you a very large beach with plenty of room for social distancing. The beach is made of white sand that is as soft as sugar and maintained daily. The sand reaches into the calm Gulf of Mexico. The smaller waves of the Gulf of Mexico keep Clearwater Beach safe for children to play in the water with a gradual decline into the water, not the steep drop that can be found on other beaches. The ocean isn’t known for rip currents, but they can form. The safety of the beach and in the ocean is monitored by the Clearwater Beach Lifeguards, who keep the beach informed of any potential hazards.

Clearwater Beach is full of amazing restaurants for all types of meals at all times of the day. COVID-19 has changed the world and has hit the restaurant industry hard. Restaurants all over have had to quickly adapt to the struggles. Many of the Clearwater Beach restaurants have always offered outdoor seating, and continue to do so. The vast majority also offer to go and takeout food as well, and many have done so even before COVID-19.

If you don’t feel comfortable eating out, it’s okay. B&W Management has Clearwater Beach vacation condos with private beachfront views available for rent. These condos have full kitchens along with multiple bedrooms, two bathrooms, private balconies, and more.

We are continuously cleaning and keeping our guests safe by following and exceeding local and CDC guidelines.

Inside your condo, you control your own temperature and the air from your condo is not shared with any of the other condos. Each condo is deep cleaned between guests including swapping out all of the bedding to be thoroughly cleaned, including the comforters and the shams in each guest bedroom. Everything inside the condo is wiped and disinfected, with extra caution on major touchpoints such as door handles, TV remotes, etc.

Outside of the condo, the building is cleaned throughout the day with extra caution on these major touchpoints as well such as door handles, keyless touchpads on the doors, elevator buttons, etc. You’ll have access to hand sanitizer on every floor of the building, outside the elevator doors, and in the lobby as well.

Please contact us with any questions you may have about Clearwater Beach or our condos and we look forward to seeing you soon!

Is Clearwater Beach Dog Friendly?


Is Clearwater Beach Dog Friendly? Dog friendly beaches in the Clearwater Beach area.

The question of whether Clearwater Beach is dog friendly or not is often asked. The official answer is a simple no. “Dogs are not allowed on Clearwater Beach.”

…but when you are on the beach, you’ll often see dogs going for walks. Dogs aren’t allowed and we do not condone breaking the rule, but it seems to be enforced more strictly on the south beach side of Clearwater Beach. When you head to the north beachside, you’ll see more dogs. Not a lot of dogs, but in the mornings you’ll see them out for beach walks on leashes.

While it says that dogs are not allowed on Clearwater Beach when you walk further north into the North Clearwater Beach residential area there are signs at the public beach access points that say leashes are required for dogs in that area. Keep in mind, there’s no public beach parking in those areas so it would take a decent walk on the sidewalk with your dog to even get up to the area.

If you’re on vacation in the Clearwater Beach area and have your dog with you, please stay informed of the local dog rules. You can take your dogs with you in many areas as long as it stays on a leash. There’s also a fenced-in dog park at Sand Key Park and a dog-friendly beach area at Honeymoon Island located in Dunedin, Florida.

Clearwater Beach Sunrise


Clearwater Beach Sunrise

I’m a night owl. I love staying up late. Sunsets are beautiful and don’t mean the end of my day. It’s just a lovely break before a fun night. Clearwater Beach is known for its beautiful sunsets, but did you know there is also a gorgeous Clearwater Beach Sunrise?

I didn’t… until my daughter was born.

She’s just under two years old, and she loves spending time at the beach! It doesn’t matter what time of day it is. She’s ready to run and play when on vacation. She’s up late, happy, and having fun then out like a light that night but back up, excited, and ready to play sometimes as early as 4 AM. I’m tired! …but enjoying every minute of it.

Now that my daughter has me up to enjoy the sunrise, I realized how much I was missing. The early mornings in Clearwater Beach are beautiful. We go for walks in the early mornings. It’s quite. There’s barely a single car driving down the dark but well-lit streets in the early morning. Other than the very occasional car driving by, we’ll see a few early morning runners to say hi to. Clearwater Beach is full of friendly faces, even at 5 AM. Well, not FULL of friendly faces at 5 AM… but there are a few other people awake, and they’re all friendly. Later in the day, the sidewalks become full.

Our early morning walks consist of walking and looking at the colorful glowing lights of the different signs as we walk towards the intercoastal waterway. That’s where we watch the sun start to come up. It’s beautiful to see the warm and color lights begin to appear behind the buildings on Island Way Estates, downtown Clearwater and Dunedin. The backlight buildings often reflect perfectly in the calm waters. It’s beautiful, quiet, and peaceful. Usually, the only thing to be heard is a few birds and the giggles of my daughter as they fly by.

I’m still far from a morning person, but if you are (or if your kids are), take a walk and enjoy the Clearwater Beach sunrise on the intercoastal side of the island. Our two favorite areas are by the boat docks next to the Clearwater Beach Library & Recreation Complex or off the Papaya Street Plaza at the c0rner of Papaya Street and East Shore Drive.

After the sunrises, we head back to the beach. My daughter is similar to all kids and hates sunscreen. So she gets to enjoy that first early part of the day building sandcastles and playing in the Gulf of Mexico sans sunscreen… all before breakfast.

If you’re a morning person, where’s your favorite morning spot?

Clearwater Beach Wedding Locations

On the Sand

Romantic beach weddings can frequently be seen on Clearwater Beach. If that’s your dream, you can make it happen! …but you’ll need a permit. Get some help planning and hosting your Clearwater Beach wedding with some of these companies.

Clearwater Beach Wedding Venues

Clearwater Beach Wedding Photographers and Videographers

Many of the wedding planners have photographers or can recommend many to talk with. Another way to find some is to use Instagram and search for #clearwaterbeachwedding and see all the beautiful photos and learn about the photographers there. You’ll be able to see some videographers on Instagram but you can also do a Clearwater Beach Wedding search on YouTube to see more Clearwater Beach Videographers’ work there.

Where To Stay

Many of the venues are hotels making it an easy choice for guests to stay very close by and together. If you’re not matched with a hotel, or if you’d like a place for kids, parents, and grandparents to all stay together consider renting a Clearwater Beach condo! B&W Management, Inc. offers beachfront condos with multiple bedrooms, bathrooms, full kitchens, personal laundry available in each unit, private balconies overlooking the beach, and swimming pools!

Things To Do … other than the wedding

Outside of the wonderful wedding, there are tons of fun things to do in Clearwater Beach!

If you’re looking for a relaxed bachelor or bachelorette party, you don’t need to go far! Enjoy some fun at the local bars on the island. From small dive bars like The Shipwreck to live bands and DJs at Shephard’s, there’s something for everyone. Want to have some drinks with just a few close friends? I can guarantee you keep it that way without bumping into another person with Crusin’ Tikis floating tiki bar that cruises around the Clearwater Beach area. Looking for something even more relaxing? There’s great spas and massages available at many of the resorts and businesses on Clearwater Beach.

Need a family-friendly activity? Spend some time fishing, sailing, kayaking and paddle boarding or just laying at the beach! Looking for more than just playing on the beach and water? Play a round of golf at some of the golf courses in the surrounding area. If you’re more of an inside person or just hit an unlucky rainy day, no worries! There’s still plenty to do indoors and even some great museums and art galleries in the Tampa Bay area.
