Sand Key Park, Clearwater

#3 of 11 in Parks in Clearwater
Park · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
As the home of an artificial reef, Sand Key Park provides opportunities for scuba diving and fishing. Manmade materials are placed in the water and marine life takes over--barnacles and algae attach themselves and turn the underwater area into a haven for fish and other animals. A salt marsh further enhances the experience, bringing in herons, pelicans, roseate spoonbills and other birds to the area. Look for seashells in the shallow waters, which abound in this environment. You can reserve a picnic shelter with a grill, and there's a playground at the site. Check out kayak and bicycle rental options for exploring the sea or trails along the coast. Dog owners can take their furry friends to a special designated park for dogs. Put Sand Key Park at the forefront of your travel plans using our Clearwater trip itinerary builder website.

  • We rented a umbrella and it was great. We had checked the water temperature at 74 degrees and it was comfortable. The water wasn’t rough at all. The beach was clean. Beautiful place.  more »
  • Loved this beach! I love that this beach is not at all crowded. There are umbrellas, chairs and cabanas for rent for the day. Clean bathrooms. Lots of white sand , sea and sun to enjoy!  more »
  • Kinda stumbled upon this park for an absolute pleasant surprise. Amazing location. I walked down to the jetty and back to the red lifeguard box and was quite content and extremely satisfied. A therapeutic way to ease my mind. That's the ideal spot for stress management. 😎
  • Sand Key is another of Florida's great parks. We had a great day playing in the waves and searching for the perfect shells. Love that it is so close to great shopping and restaurants as well. And with the all day parking pass, coming and going is no problem.
