This park has everything you may want in a park. The dunes, the water, playgrounds, pavilions, charcoal grills and much more to list. Come see and explore for yourself. I haven't found a better playground than West Central Florida.

Lots of shells! Not too far from Clearwater Beach, but very different. Less people and commotion. Bring your own food/drinks.

You can't say enough about Sand Key beach! We rented jet ski's for a hour and had a blast! The beach is not crowded at all! It is a gem!!! So much better than Clearwater Beach where it is so touristy! This is a real gem! We were able to relax, get in the ocean and jet ski without feeling... More

This is a great place to watch a Gulf Coast sunset if you want a peaceful, quiet, romantic spot. Escape the crowds at Clearwater Beach. Bring your beach chair and don't forget your camera. You won't be disappointed.

Nice public park that only costs $5 to park for the entire day. The white sand beach is wonderful along with the fact that they have life guards on duty. The beach is great for shelling though most of the good shells are in the water so you have to find them with your feet and then retrieve them. The... More

I hate to write a review to let others know about this hidden gem but this is a great county park with an amazing beach and facilities. The beach can get a little crowded but not nearly as bad clearwater beach. One thing is forsure the parking is less of a hassel. This beach ends right at the inlet so... More

Love this beach! Parking is a small fee but you get what you pay for. The beach is clean and well kept (minus the area around the wedding tents) and the water is gorgeous! There is plenty of room to set up and have some space from your neighbor. Very family friendly, no alcohol allowed, and the waves are fantastic... More

This place has tons of parking, have the public restroom, and a nice beach. This is the perfect spot in Clearwater for families. The beach is like the Clearwater beach, medium to dark green. I just gave 3 because it is not a clear water beach.

Sand Key Park is a large park with a beautiful beach in it. We much preferred this beach to Clearwater Beach as it was just as beautiful, but it was much less crowded. You can rent parasols and sunbeds, and there is a lot of car parking space available.
