Attractions & Sunsets at Pier 60
Located right on Clearwater Beach and less than 1/4 mile from Sandpearl Resort, Pier 60 is a family-friendly destination known for its fishing, restaurants and shopping as well as "Sunsets at Pier 60", a daily celebration featuring arts and crafts vendors, street musicians and entertainers. Starting two hours before sunset, Pier 60’s beach area area comes alive as local and regional artists perform for the crowds and display their work. Since every day brings different vendors and buskers to the pier, there’s always something new to experience from magicians and jugglers to stilt walkers and ballroom artists along with tables of crafters selling their wares.
Sunsets at Pier 60 changes their operating times throughout the year depending on what time the sun sets, so be sure to ask the Sandpearl's Concierge for the starting and ending times during your stay.
In addition to the Sunset festivities, Pier 60 features a large children's playground, covered pavilions, snack shops, shopping, restaurants and bars, fishing rentals, boat tours, and a modern pier for fishing or just enjoying a stroll.
