Just past the bridge, you'll find Sand Key Park. There's lots of parking, but, bring $ for the parking meters if you drive to the Park. (There's another bridge from Sand Key... More

Sand Key Park is good alternative if you want something less commercialised parking for $5 is OK. The beach is not as clean as Clearwater but is a more natural beach with bits of weed etc. The sand is not as fine and soft but OK

Very nice park, along the gulf and the inlet to the bay. Enjoyed sunset with friends and family. Also, fished the inlet and enjoyed watching boats enter the bay. Plenty of parking, and $5 a day is reasonable. Good facilities, walking paths, etc.

Worth the bit of travel past the hub-bub of popular Clearwater Beach. Sand Key Park has consessions, grills, shelters and a dog park. The beach is nice and wide.

When seeking a calm, relaxing beach that is both great for a walk or sunbathing or taking a dip in the gulf, my husband and I are always delighted with a visit to Sand Key Park. Thus county run park is just over the Sand Key Bridge from Clearwater Beach. We especially live the quieter beach away from some of... More

White sand and shell filled beach facing out to the Gulf. Bathroom facilities and an expansive shoreline make for a beautiful sunset on the beach.

Clean, inexpensive, great views, best place for shelving, close but not to close to Clearwater beach crowds. Close to Clearwater aquarium.

Very clean and peaceful beach if you like to getaway from all the tourists at Clearwater Beach. There is a $5 parking fee but it is so worth it.
