Pier 60
About
Travelers flock to Pier 60 to stroll along this iconic fishing pier. Since Clearwater Beach is a west-facing beach, it’s a popular spot to catch the sunset. There’s even a nightly sunset celebration featuring performances by musicians, firebreathers, dancers, and more. Get a ticket to walk along the farthest end of the pier and spot pelicans circling the sky. You can buy handicrafts from street vendors and listen to live music along the way. Stay at a waterfront hotel to enjoy Clearwater Beach to the fullest and discover all the great restaurants and shops around the beach.

    One of the prettiest
    We came here after reading all the reviews on TA. The beach is absolutely one of the prettiest beaches I have seen. It is so wide, that there is plenty of room for everyone not to be all crowded in. The sand is white, the water was perfect, plenty of space to move around. Some vendors all around, live music, a food mart, restrooms, and plenty of parking. Loved it. We went at 6 pm so the heat wasn't so bad and it was just right. Loved it and it is a must!!!!!!

    Great beach spot
    Best beach vacation spot. Dropped off at the pier and spent 3 hours on the beach and in the water next to the pier. Walked to a restaurant to eat. Then walked some shops and the pier. My daughter loves to get souvenir pennies and they had a machine there for them. Definitely a great spot.

    Stop by!
    Free until the very end and you don’t need to go out there unless you’re fishing, even then, it’s only a buck a person. It’s clean, nice vendors on there today too. Clean. Nice breeze, gorgeous views.

    Lots to See and Do
    There was a festival going on at the pier while we were visiting. There were lots of booths set up selling wares, caricature and Portrait artists, face painting, etc. We saw rays and various fish from the pier. We didn’t go past the point that leads to the fishing portion but I’m sure there would have been even more to see from there. It wasn’t overly crowded and we enjoyed our time looking around.

You have to stop and enjoy the view from the pier. Is very nice, good ambiance. Good spot for the sunset too. A mandatory spot to visit if you go to Clearwater, FL

Great pier to walk with kids. Really wide with plenty of room on each side and multiple places to stop and sit or take pictures. Best of all, it is free and not too long of a walk to the end! Looked like some fishing was going on too.

The cabanas and sun loungers are relatively expensive and the people taking the money take your details on a pad. At this point, there is a selection to tip just for taking money off you. Tip for this, tip for that😞

Nice pier that is worth checking out. My favorite part was seeing the pelicans. Great views. There is a nice shop that has snacks, souvenirs, and fishing gear. There is a small fee to enter. There are a couple of shops just before entering or exiting. Nice palm tree lined path going up to the pier. At night, the pier sets up vendors selling all sorts of stuff. Worth checking out. Enjoy!

Great place to watch the sunsets. Totally worth the $1.00 entry to go completely out on the pier and they have a nice little gift shop.
