    Make a holiday rental property or villa in Clearwater Beach, Florida your home away from home

    Nested between the famous white beaches of the Gulf of Mexico and the unspoilt, tropical landscape of Florida is the wildly popular Clearwater Beach. The incredible white sand beaches of the Gulf Coast are a huge attraction for anyone thinking of taking a self catering Clearwater Beach villa, apartment or condo, and although it is hard to do them justice in words, you would have to search many continents to find such a magnificent place to relax in the sun than on Clearwater Beach.

    Things to do on holiday in Clearwater Beach, Florida

    Clearwater Beach and the surrounding island beaches have made the area the most popular holiday destination in Florida. Amazingly, this has not driven prices up or caused the warm welcome visitors receive to wane. This is not a region of large hotels and package holidays, instead remaining a luxurious retreat for discerning, independent travellers. It is the combination of stunning scenery and awe-inspiring sunsets which make Clearwater Beach weddings so special, and whether you have your wedding on Clearwater Beach itself, in a local church or even in your own luxurious Clearwater Beach villa, the setting really will guarantee a sensational day for all involved.

    If you are here for a holiday rather than a Clearwater Beach wedding, you are spoilt for choice for recreation too. The warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico lend themselves perfectly to anyone wishing to take a quick dip, with water temperatures remaining between 16˚C and 26˚C throughout the year. Theses conditions, and the fact that the seas remain calm, mean that sailing, windsurfing, scuba diving and para-sailing holidays thrive from Clearwater Beach accommodation, not to mention the scuba diving. Scuba diving in Clearwater Beach is exceptional, with 10 artificial offshore reefs attracting some wonderful marine life. Dolphins are also regularly seen out in the Gulf. The Gulf of Mexico is also famous for having some of the best deep sea fishing in the world, and there is a real chance that you might return to your Clearwater Beach property having just caught a fish large enough to put you on the pages of the Guinness Book of Records!

    Of course, golf is never far from the minds of anyone on a Clearwater Beach holiday. The area is littered with fantastic golf courses, with no less than 29 public courses within the same area code! Arranging a tee-off time is remarkably easy, giving you the complete choice of which course to tackle on a particular day.

    Nature still thrives in the Clearwater area too. The Brooker Creek Preserve and the Weedon Island Preserve are among the finest of the plentiful parks in the region, providing protection for over 160 bird species as well as a huge range of amphibians, reptiles and mammals, many of which are protected by law. The hiking, biking and kayaking trails through the parks are certainly worth exploring.
