Welcome To My QTH On Sand Key Island, Clearwater Beach Florida

Sand Key Island From The Air - Clearwater Beach, Florida

Sand Key Island is a barrier island on the West Coast of Florida, lies just south of Clearwater Beach Florida, across the bridge over Clearwater Pass.

Less than a mile wide, the western side of the island has sandy white beaches and a row of high rise condominiums overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.

The eastern side of Sand Key fronts Clearwater Bay which is part of the Intracoastal Waterway. Condos, townhouses, and single family homes line the East side of the island – many of which have boat docking facilities.

Commercial activity is focused on the north end of Sand Key. Two resort hotels, the Sheraton and the Marriott, along with the Shoppes on Sand Key provide a variety of restaurants, shopping, banking, and residential and tourist services.

Sand Key Park and the Clearwater Sailing Center attract many visitors and locals.

A US Coast Guard station is also located on Sand Key. Free tennis courts and children’s gym toys are available at the city Bayside Park.

Gulf Boulevard runs down the middle of Sand Key and goes from the north end of the island at Clearwater Beach to Treasure Island on the south where Sand Key Island ends.
