Parking is metered. Nice broad beach. Fishing pier and jetty fishing. Bathrooms accessible. Drinks available in coin operated machines. No food services available, so pack a lunch. Enjoy the uncrowded beach. No services for food.

Arrive early at 8 am or earlier for less crowd and traffic on causeway. Nice beach that is less crowds than Clearwater Beach. Few shells, nice beach. Close to parking lot, not a long walk to the beach from the car.

Beautiful beach with local surfers, fisherman, and beach walkers. Sand was a bit rough given all the smaller shells, but not a problem if you kept your flip flops on. Clean, and not at all crowded.

We happened on Sand Key quite by accident. It turned out to be a wonderful beach experience, well worth the five dollar fee. In fact we returned the next evening to watch the sunset. The bathrooms were clean. It was quite a nice, relaxing visit. (And the hotdogs at the vendor are great, too!)

This little park is a slice of the marshes that were once here, so now home to an amazing number of birds including an osprey nest, ibis, herons, and red-winged blackbirds. Also a popular park for fishing in the channel between the Gulf and Clearwater Bay.

I walked over from clearwater beach. The sand on sand key park is more course but very nice and clean. The span of the beach was also nice and long with gentle waves. It was not crowded at all when I went. The water quality is equivalent to clearwater beach.

Though we usually just ride bikes or walk, this park offers a variety of activities. Last time we even saw a sign for a wedding. Gulf beach access or fishing in the inlet. Good trails.

We visited Sand Key Park yesterday and found it much quieter than the main hub of Clearwater. Turn in to it just before the Sheraton hotel. The car park was quite empty and was $5 all day. Whilst there is a man with a small food stand (burgers, crisps, hot dogs, cold drinks) and a gazebo with two table and... More
