My daughter and I visited in March 2011. The weather was perfect- 86 degrees and pure sunshine. Although we stayed at the Holiday Inn Clearwater, I knew of Sand Key Park from a previous stay at the Sheraton.
Another mentioned that they didn't like the condos lining the beach. I would advise to enter Sand Key Park and go to the furthest parking lot. You are then at the end of the park, far away from the hotel and condos and the crowds! We had just a handful of other sunbathers sharing the beach area with us! There were more shorebirds than people, to be honest!
Absolutely beautiful. Enjoyed strolling the waterline for shells. There are several palm trees closer to the parking area that can afford shade if you like.
The parking spaces are metered ....bring quarters!
Just a delightful day - will certainly return!
