I'd live on pretty much any beach other than Belleair or Clearwater.

It's like Clearwater, minus virtually every commercial property. Even less to do.

That is true because it is one of the only strictly residential beach communities in Pinellas county... The upside is that you have a mile's worth of beach that only residents have parking access to, definitely not super crowded and touristy like Clearwater and yes nothing to do BUT go to the beach there.

All of the above....I know several ppl who live there, in hi-rise bldgs. It is very expensive...What do they do? go to the beach, play tennis, play golf.... Like Gypsy says there's other places that are much more entertaining than Clbeach. I don't think it has nothing to do with Scientology, as I have said before they don't bother anybody...And no, I am not SCi. I am Christian.

I love Clearwater beach! I think it's the best, so built up and fancy lookin' It's jammed with tourists, there's no native community there, just timeshares and motels and hotels.

IMHO Pass-a-Grille and Clearwater Beach are the only two unique beaches in Pinellas County. Driving from St. Pete Beach up though Treasure Island and further north, you won't see the water once? It is all old hotels from days past, and everything has that cheap touristy feel. There are few ways to enjoy the beach, other than trying to find a place to park and walking though some condos/hotels to go walk on it.

I certainly have no interest whatsoever of going to St. Pete Beach to "walk the strip". Might as well go walking on 19 or Dale Mabry.

At least Clearwater has the new beachwalk, and Pass-a-Grille is a gem- an actual place where condos aren't built on every strip of sand.
