CLEARWATER - Once again, Tampa Bay beaches have been hailed as some of the best in the United States.

Clearwater Beach has once again been named the No. 1 beach, according to TripAdvisor, which notes that the best time to visit is, well, any time of the year.

It’s the second time Clearwater Beach has claimed this top spot. The pristine beach took the same title in 2016.

Siesta Beach, in Siesta Key, Florida, came in second place but should have been the 2017 winner, according to TripAdvisor. St. Pete Beach came in seventh place for this year.

In a tweet, Visit St. Pete/Clearwater wrote, “Sugar sand, emerald green water, and 365 days of sunshine are just a few reasons we’re home to #AmericasBestBeaches!”

Clearwater Beach has garnered a reputation as an ideal vacation destination for people of all ages from all around the world. Families vacation here as do couples and young adults. From some of the best seafood restaurants Florida’s gulf coast has to offer, to recreational activities that include boat rides and parasailing, to world-class hotels and resorts, Clearwater Beach offers something for everyone!

Although Clearwater Beach is a great place to vacation, it's an even better place to live, evidenced by the people who live here year-round.
