Parking

parking
This is Clearwater Beach. There will be cars. There will be traffic. There will be a treasure hunt for parking spaces, so knowing where alternative parking and transportation options are located can make a difference.
The closest public parking lot to the event is the Pier 60 lot ($3/hr.) located just southwest of the roundabout, beachside. Street Parking can be found both north and south of the roundabout. There are two public parking garages located near the venue on Coronado (Hyatt
Regency) and one public parking garage located on the North beach in the Pelican Walk Plaza. Check out this map for a full list of parking spots on Clearwater Beach!

Ferry Service

Don’t want to drive and sit in traffic? Take the Clearwater Ferry! Operating 7 Days a week, the Clearwater Ferry can help you skip traffic, save money, and save time. What could be better? Free parking in downtown Clearwater and ride the ferry for a low-price. During the Festival, the Clearwater Ferry will operate on the high volume schedule to accommodate the increase in visitors. Check out the Clearwater Ferry Website or download the app for current ticket prices and departing schedules.

The Jolley Trolley


Wherever you’re traveling from, PSTA’s trolley system has you covered. Riding the trolley is a great experience and helps reduce traffic and parking concerns on the beach. The Suncoast Beach Trolley runs from Treasure Island up to Clearwater Beach, Coastal Jolley Trolley comes from Tarpon Springs and Dunedin to Clearwater Beach, and you can hop on the North/South Beach Jolley Trolleys get all over Clearwater Beach.

During the Pier 60 Sugar Sand Festival, festival-goers can park for free at Harborview Center or Clearwater City Hall, ride the Trolley for free out to the beach, and hop on and off all day for free. Visit www.psta.net/springbreak for location and promotion details.
