If you are someone who has always wanted to live near the beach, then living in Clearwater apartments is a dream come true. Clearwater has the best beaches in the Tampa Bay area, which powdery white sand and crisp, clear ocean water. Whether you are going to be living here for a little while or a long time, you should definitely make the best of it.

As someone who is new to the beach dwelling life, there may be some things that you should know in order to fully take advantage of your current situation. After all, living in Clearwater apartments means you are never too far away; so don't be surprised if you are spending a lot of your time in the sand.

The first and most important thing to remember before you go on off to the beach, is to bring quarters. While some areas have adapted their parking so that you can pay with a credit card, most still rely on you having quarters. You don't want to leave Clearwater apartments for the beach and find out that you have to turn around. Keep some quarters in your car, you will be glad that you did.

Something else you will want to definitely bring with you from Clearwater apartments to the beach is sunscreen. Whether your family has a history of sun cancer or not, sunscreen is a must when going to a beach in Clearwater. If you don't think that you are going to need it because you are mostly going to be in the water, then you are even more wrong. The sun burns you even faster in the water.

Sunglasses are also a must for any resident of apartments in Clearwater. Since the beaches face the west, the sun will set over the ocean. While it is definitely something beautiful to watch, it is also burning your eyes. A hat is going to help you much when you are staring into the sun. Get some cheap sunglasses, and save your eyes the trouble.

Now what about beach gear, like chairs and umbrellas? If you aren't in the most spacious of Clearwater apartments, you may not have the space to store such things. Not to worry, as many parts of Clearwater beaches actually have rentable chairs and umbrellas.

Check online to see what the most popular beaches are near Clearwater apartments, and then look for areas where you can rent beach equipment. It's an extra bonus to know that you won't have to carry any of the equipment around, or wash it in the parking lot of any apartments in Clearwater. It should be noted, however, that you cannot rent a towel, so make sure that you bring your own.

These are really all the basic beach suggestions I can give to any new residents of Clearwater apartments. A little preparation can go a long way in making your beach experience the best it can be. After all, living in one of the apartments near Clearwater is all about making the most of your time at the beach.
