Situated on a manmade island surrounded by Mandalay Sound and the Intracoastal Waterway, Island Estates in Clearwater Beach is an amazing place to call home. For boaters those wanting to be close to the beach, but not right on it, the area certainly deserves a look. Island Estates is a neighborhood rather than a single development, which is a refreshing change from a lot of modern Florida beach real estate.
Located between Clearwater and Clearwater Beach, residents of Island Estates have water views almost everywhere they look. It’s an affluent community, and prospective residents will find a broad range of housing types available, including 500 single-family homes and 2,000 condominium units.
Most homes back onto the water, and the majority of single-family homes feature boat slips in the deep-water channel. It’s certainly a boater’s paradise, and the channel’s depth makes it an ideal location for everything from small boats to custom yachts with deep drafts.
Of course, it’s not all about the home types or the stunning water views. It’s also about convenience since Island Estates is completely self-contained. The island is home to its own Publix grocery store, as well as two banks. Several restaurants serve residents, including the popular Island Way Grill. The Clearwater Marine Aquarium (home of Winter the dolphin) is also located on the island.
Getting to either Clearwater Beach or the city of Clearwater on the mainland is as simple as jumping on the Clearwater Memorial Causeway (Highway 60). Coachman Park is just a few minutes away, where residents find 20 acres of landscaped grounds. The Charles Wharton Johnson Pavilion plays host to a number of events and concerts throughout the year.
Whether you love boating, want quick access to the incredible Gulf of Mexico beaches or prefer the myriad of nightlife, shopping and dining options in the larger city of Clearwater, Island Estates is an amazing place to call home.
