Spent a day here at the beach last weekend and we had a good time.

Sand Key park is a nice alternative to the much busier local beaches, particularly Clearwater Beach up the street.

Cabanas/umbrellas and chairs are available for a fee but the facilities are pretty sparse. This beach has a nice unspoiled feel to it and the park is quite pleasant with a little wetland area with some cool birds and plenty of greenery.

The sand is more shell filled than Clearwater beach but the water was great to swim in and there was plenty of room on the beach. It would take a lot for this beach to feel crowded. If you are looking for something more low key and quieter for a beach focused day of vacation then I'd say Sand Key fits the bill.

We always stop in this park when we are in the area. Surprised to see that you now need to pay $5 to park for the day. The weather was awful (as it was all week) and we didnt want to spend $5 to just walk the beach for a bit. We were concerned about getting towed. There should be an option to have 1/2 hr parking.

Great beach for morning walks with the family to hunt for shells. Also, a more quiet and relaxed beach than other beaches near by, like Clearwater Beach. Nice to have some trees nearby too.

Nice park with plenty of parking. Great way to see the water as there are a lot of homes and condos that face the water and most parking on Gulf Blvd. to the beach is by permit only. Great alternative to the crowds of Clearwater Beach down the street.

A stones throw from Clearwater Beach...it was less crowded on Memorial Day weekend. We enjoyed the beach. The walk onto the beach was a little far, but there was plenty of parking to be had. All in all it was a great trip.
