Feels like a private beach

Unlike Clearwater, Sand Key is quiet, kinda private, very relaxing with lifeguard available and a food truck with good quality hamburgers.

Sandkey beach is good-nuff if you do not feel like heading up into Clearwater. The sand however is not really soft at all. There is a bath house and restrooms but not a snack bar. It is a short walk from the Marriott. You can have a fun time at beach- just remember it is a bit crunchier sand so... More

This is a beautiful beach and park area. Plenty of parking available. No real food options, so pack a lunch and enjoy.

Unable to find parking at Clearwater Beach, we drove to Sand Key and found it far less crowded. Parking was easy and the water was clear, we couldn't ask for more.

This beach is very nice and a lot less crowded than Clearwater Beach and parking is way cheaper at only $5. The only issue I have are the cigarette butts and small pieces of trash scattered on the beach. People stop littering!!

The beach itself was okay. The quality of the sand was a bit rough in comparison to Clearwater. There were very few people visiting when we were there, so there was plenty of room to spread out, and that was nice. The seagulls were especially aggressive here, so watch your food! It was $5 to park all day, which was... More

This is a special beach for me and my wife, it's where we got married. The sunset was to die for. We go back and visit every time we are in Clear water

Tried Clearwater beach a couple of times but felt it was way too busy. Drove a further few miles down the coast to Sand Key Park and was really glad we did. Arrived just after 9 on a Thursday morning and car park was near empty ($5 a day). Beach was really quiet to begin with but got busier by... More
