We found this salty piece of land much by accident. We were driving around looking for someplace to spend some time waiting for a late flight out of Tampa. Came upon this beautiful park and spent some time here. I think next trip we'll stop here on the way in when it's to early to check in the hotel and... More

My wife and I have been to the Clearwater area a couple of times and this was the first time we spent part of a day at Sand Key. Only a few minutes south of the bustle of Clearwater Beach, this park and beach is a great way to enjoy the Gulf, warm water and have a quiet beach retreat.... More

My son is in a wheelchair but wanted to go to beach/sea on our trip to florida so I researched beach wheelchairs and Sandy Key came up on search. Turned up and parked up and saw a parking warden who radioed lifeguard that came and got a beach wheelchair from the beachhut/changing room for us and was really helpful. I... More

We drove through and could see it is a nice spot. the info online says the bathrooms are not open during the weekdays (which is odd) , but on a Monday afternoon, the doors to the ladies room were open. Just be aware that there may be no bathroom facilities along the beach during the week . It really does... More

This is truly a hidden gem amongst the bustle of Clearwater beach. This is one of my favorite beaches in the Tampa area for a variety of reasons.... 1. Locals Beach (less tourists/spring breakers) 2. Only $5 to Park 3. Look at the views Check out my video I took flying over the park. You won't be disappointed :) https://youtu.be/sQ7RuxLBmpk

Sand Key Park and Beach is beautiful. Not over crowded, well cared for. There is a $5.00 for all day parking but understandable with the care given to the park and beach. There is a very nice picnic area too. It is a very short from Clearwater Beach

While driving through Clearwater we found this park right off of the bridge. Clearwater was just too touristy for us and parking can get expensive. This park has amazing beach areas, showers, and only 5 dollars. We have been here twice this past week. If you wait till low tide, the shelling is fantastic. We had a great time.
