Sand Key Park has a $5 parking fee to stay at the beach for a day, other beaches or parking spots range from $15-$20 (for 1 day as well). The water here is warm because of the bright sun, I recommend bringing a lot of cold waters and sodas to drink, and plenty of sunscreen! it's also pretty busy over... More

I visit here every year. I suppose i have a urge to visit as i was married on this beach in 2001. There is plenty of parking (not free). Toilet & shower facility's available. The beach itself is like any other beach locally but a lot quieter. So if you want to get away from the madness of clearwater beach... More

My teenagers loved this beach. It's a little more natural than Clearwater with a greater variety of birds and shells. A $5 fee is charged per car and is a bargain compared to parking in Clearwater. We weren't lucky enough to see dolphins but the blue herons made up for that.

So far so good. Beach not crowded water great, so many dolphins up close and personal. Beach service was great, very polite, food cart came buy enough times and prices weren't as bad as I thought. We've live in Texas so anything beats Galveston and south padre. If you don't want crowds this is the place to come.

After spending a couple days at Clearwater Beach and Pier 60, we decided to check out Sand Key Park and were very delighted to see a tremendous difference in crowd size. Sand Key Park is only about a 5 minute drive from Clearwater Beach and offers a much less crowded and more relaxing beach experience. You get all the same... More

I go there often to sit under the trees and watch the boats go in and out in the channel. It is relaxing. As I can not sit in the sun to long it is the perfect place to go, shade, water and envy looking at the boats.

Sand Key Park is just south of Clearwater Beach (over the Sand Key Bridge) and offers wonderful, much less crowded beach experience for families...just walk a few minutes south from the public beach entrance and you have all the space you want. Water sports like jet-skis, canoes etc. available for rental, food & drinks available for purchase from beach vendors... More

Beautiful beach and water. Clean, not crowded and convenient. The park facilities were well maintained. For the $5 all day parking, probably the best value of the week. Close access to the jetty and channel exiting Clearwater beach provided great scenary of the Parasails, charters and pleasure boats.

good if you want a little less crowded. you can hear the night clubs in the evening and the do have event tents on the beach so you don't have a clear view depending where you sit The Park itself is nice, with trails , picnic tables and a dog park
