     At Belloise Realty, our staff members have been around the island of Clearwater Beach for at least four years or more each. During that time, they develop favorite beach activities, favorite restaurants and a few tips for getting around the island efficiently which they are willing to share right here with you! So, here’s a little beach-local insight to help steer you through planning your next vacation.

Allison enjoys taking dinner cruises around the island. There are two cruise companies that she loves the most and she shared them with us today. Starlite Majesty Dining Yacht hosts a dinner cruise that sets out in the evening. Everyone can dress up and spend a few hours wining and dining on the gulf. The food is delicious, and they offer several great options to satisfy everyone who is dining. The scenery is beautiful, and the overall experience is serene yet lively. Allison says, for a more comfortable dining cruise she loves to go to Tropics Boat Tours. This party on a boat offers beer and wine and an exciting party atmosphere. They have music playing and they have Tommy the Turtle story time for the children. Both excursions travel around the island of Clearwater Beach giving you many unique perspectives of the island and the beach. Sunsets on Clearwater Beach are the best and cruising during sunset hour is truly magical.

Vince loves relaxing and taking in the scenery at the Marina Cantina. They have some awesome tropical cocktails and a fun Mexican inspired menu. The top floor has some informal seating where you can hang out with your group of family or friends and enjoy the sea air over drinks and good laughs. Sunset is a great time to grab a bite to eat while you watch the sun disappear slowly into the ocean.

Jessica enjoys the outdoors and the nightlife. One of her favorite spots to go to is Jimmy’s Crow’s Nest. This roof top bar overlooks the island of Clearwater and is the perfect place to see sunset views. Jessica also says it’s the best place to take selfies because you have the scenic view of the ocean in the background. They have a wide selection of food and cocktails and a huge parking garage on the bottom floor. All you need to do is take the elevator up to the 10th floor and you will walk straight into the bar!

A few beach tips and tricks to help you navigate the beach

Clearwater Beach traffic is often congested, and parking can be a nightmare. The most important tip I can give is, understand how to get around the island. There are free ride company’s that will pick you up and drop you off anywhere on the island and all you have to do is tip the driver. You save drive time and you don’t have to find a parking spot. You are free to explore and get picked up wherever you are when you are ready to return home. Here are a few local free rides:

The Jolley Trolley is a fun way to get around the beach, to explore the coastline, or to get to downtown Clearwater. The day pass is an inexpensive way to get around and explore. You can take the trolley to John’s Pass and/or St. Pete Beach to experience the shops and restaurants. The trolley can also get you to downtown Clearwater which is a quaint town of shops, restaurants and art galleries. Pick up a map on their website for pick up times.

The Clearwater Ferry goes from the marina to Island Estates to downtown Clearwater and on the weekends to downtown Dunedin. The waterway is a unique route to take when going back and forth from neighboring cities. No need to drive and deal with bridge traffic.
