North Clearwater Beach

North Clearwater Beach

Clearwater Beach is a small barrier island on the Gulf Coast of Florida. The beautiful sunset views and soft white sand have made Clearwater Beach an award-winning vacation location. The white sand beaches stretch two and a half miles from the south side of the island to North Clearwater Beach.

Why I love staying on North Clearwater Beach

There are many places to stay on Clearwater Beach. One decision that is often overlooked is the difference between staying on North Clearwater Beach or on the south side of the island. I personally love staying on North Clearwater Beach.

The beach on North Clearwater Beach is less crowded

One of the best parts of North Clearwater Beach is that the actual beach is less crowded. While Clearwater Beach is a public beach, the most crowded areas of the beach are South Beach and the areas near Pier 60. As you head further north, the beach will become less crowded. Giving you more room to choose a relaxing spot near the calm ocean or a larger area to toss a football or frisbee around.

Restaurants in walking distance

While North Beach is much quieter and less crowded, there are still many fabulous restaurants within walking distance. Some of the best restaurants on Clearwater Beach are close by including Frenchy’s Original Cafe, Palm Pavilion Grill & Bar, Clear Sky Beachside Cafe, and many others!

And if you’re looking for an extremely short walk or even a delivery, check out Angelo’s Pizza on the corner of Mandalay Avenue and Idlewild Street. This is on the same block of Surfside Condominiums or just around the corner from The Villas of Clearwater Beach.

Party areas, bars and nightclubs

…are located on South Beach. Leaving North Clearwater Beach quieter and more relaxing at night.

If you are on a family vacation with young kids, you’ll enjoy having a quieter area, especially at night. Even if you don’t have young children with you, you’ll enjoy being able to sit on the balcony at night, star gaze and hear the waves of the Gulf of Mexico.

North Clearwater Beach has a few bars with more relaxed atmospheres, all within a very short walking distance. If you’re wanting to check out the busier bars and nightclubs on South Beach, it is walkable but may be further than you’d like to walk. Some of the bars and nightclubs on South Beach may offer free shuttles (usually large golf carts), but even if they don’t offer rides they are all just a short Uber ride away. Uber will make getting to South Beach Clearwater quick and inexpensive.

…and when you’re ready to call it a night, it’ll be nice to be able to get back to a quiet bed on North Clearwater Beach.
