Clearwater Beach, Florida
My favorite beach in Florida is Clearwater Beach. I have lived here for over 25 years and have watched it grow and continue to grow into a fantastic place to live and visit.
About 5 times a week, I ride my bicycle down to the beach. It is around a 7 mile trip each way, but I really enjoy going down to the beach to relax by the water, watch the sunset, or having a beer at 'Rockaway Grill'.
One of the big 'perks' of a west coast Florida beach: the sunsets. They are magnificent and something not to be missed on a trip to the Tampa area.
When I first moved into the area, I fell in love with the white sand beach. The sand is so soft. I have never felt sand like that anywhere else in the world. I have traveled all over Florida, been to beaches in the Panhandle, east coast FL beaches, south Florida, and none compare to that of this beach in the sunshine state!
One of my favorite things about this beach on the Gulf of Mexico coast of Florida, is that when you go in the water, the gentle Gulf does not bash you around with large waves. Many times, the surf is so gentle that the water appears to be like glass.It's very relaxing and calm.
It's the perfect beach for me!.
