Belleair Beach vacation rentals

A serene hideaway on Florida's Gulf Coast

Looking for a low-key vacation on the Gulf of Mexico? Look no further than Belleair Beach, Florida. Situated on a jetty off the coast of Clearwater, this unpretentious town offers all the fun of a tropical beach setting without the bustle of more hectic beach destinations. There aren't many active sports on offer in these waters, so a Belleair Beach vacation rental gives guests a quiet stretch of beach. Those seeking a little more action don't have to look far, though - within 20 miles you'll find an aquarium, golf options for both kids and adults, and a Major League Baseball stadium.

Sand and sea without the need to be seen

Belleair Beach is the place to be for those vacationers who don't want to be in "The Place to Be." Unlike other area beaches with busy vendors, watersports, and large crowds, this stretch of sand is quiet and blissfully underused. The gulf provides stunning views and you may spy a pod of dolphins swimming by. Looking for a break from the tranquility? Head to Clearwater Beach, just 15 minutes to the north. You'll find a bevy of restaurants and nightclubs, plus recreational fun like water-skiing and parasailing.

Fun in the sun, sports, shopping and so much more

The Gulf Coast offers something for everyone, from romantic beach strolls to family-friendly attractions. The hustle and bustle of Clearwater Beach, perfect for shopping and eating, is a short drive or bus trip to the north. Families will enjoy a trip to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, Smugglers Cove Adventure Golf, or maybe even take in a baseball game at Tropicana Field (April through September). Sportsmen can get a round in at 1 of the area golf courses. Couples can relish a quiet walk along the beach or drink in the local flora at the Florida Botanical Gardens.

Perfect temps all year - but don't forget your umbrella

While you're in Belleair Beach, you can expect comfortable temperatures with plenty of humidity, due to the fact the town is on a peninsula between Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Thermometers read above 80 most days between April and October, with winter lows never dropping much below 50. If you're planning a Belleair Beach vacation rental, make sure to bring an umbrella and sunblock; it rains on about a third of the days in this humid, subtropical climate, and the rainfall is quite unpredictable, with bright sun often poking out in between showers. Snow is extremely rare.

Sea life abounds in and around this Gulf town

With the Gulf of Mexico to the west and Tampa Bay to the east, Belleair Beach sits on a narrow jetty across the intercoastal waterway just west of the mainland, connected by Belleair Bridge. Because of this relative secludedness, while staying at a Belleair vacation rental it's not at all unusual to see sea turtle and seabird nesting sites along the shore, or to spot dolphins in the Gulf. Although Belleair Beach itself is only 2 miles long, it connects to Indian Rocks Beach to the south and Sand Key Park to the north.
