Boutique Hotel Near Pier 60 in Clearwater, FL

As one of the attractions in the St. Pete-Clearwater area, Pier 60 is just a 15-minute walk from your room, suite, or vacation rental here at Hotel Cabana. Whether you’re in the mood for a bit of Gulf of Mexico fishing, an evening of live entertainment and outdoor shopping, or front-row seats to some of the finest sunsets on the planet, this postcard-perfect stretch of beach is just the ticket!

Introducing Pier 60

Pier 60 itself is a 1,080-foot-long fishing pier jutting out into the sparkling waters of the Gulf. It’s a pleasant boardwalk simply to stroll, but this is also one of the area’s great places to cast for some of the gamefish Greater Tampa Bay is known for: redfish, spotted trout, silver trout, Spanish mackerel, tarpon, flounder, snook, snapper, and more. The ample lighting makes Pier 60 ideal for night angling, too. You’ll find a well-appointed bait house on site.

The associated Pier 60 park includes covered pavilions, a large playground, and other attractions.

Pier 60 is a perfect spot to enjoy one of Clearwater Beach’s famous sunsets. The “Sunsets at Pier 60” event is a nightly, family-friendly festival anchored by the sundown show and also involving loads of buskers—musicians, stilt-walkers, fire-eaters, jugglers, and more—and arts-and-crafts vendors.

Then there’s Sunset Cinema, serving up FREE outdoor movies at Pier 60 on Friday and Saturday evenings. Upcoming flicks include:

  • If you’re looking for a good Valentine’s Day date night during a Hotel Cabana stay, meanwhile, Sunset Cinema’s serving up an appropriate one-two punch, with The Lost Valentineon February 14th and The Notebook on February 15th.
  • Beauty & the Beast (February 21st)
  • Ophelia (February 22nd)
  • The Sun is Also a Star (February 28th)
  • Leap Year (February 29th)

For a home base close to fishing and the evening’s festivities at Pier 60, book a room or suite at Hotel Cabana. Our boutique-chic lodgings, which offer an aesthetic inspired by Key West, sit just steps from the sand and only a conch shell’s toss away from the popular pier and its many attractions.
