About Sand Key Park

Clearwater Beach, Florida

The beach at Sand Key Park is open to the public for day use. It’s a barrier island, separated from Clearwater Beach by the Clearwater Pass, and occupies 95 acres of the northern end of Sand Key. The park offers two picnic shelters, a playground, restroom facilities and a dog park. Grills, picnic tables and water fountains are also available.

Beach weddings and parties

Sand Key’s wide, expansive beach is the perfect setting for a beach wedding, vow renewal, reception or party. The Bon Appetit Group, in business for 45 years in the Clearwater area, operates restaurants and beach concessions and is the only licensed caterer for Sand Key. We are permitted to keep the beach open for your party after the park closes so you can enjoy a private event. We will handle all aspects of your event and provide complete party, wedding planning and ceremony services.

  • Ready to start planning? Our venue coordinators look forward to meeting you and are excited to help – Contact Us today!
  • Please note that Pinellas County requires a permit to hold a special event on the beach. Applications must be submitted a minimum (30) working days in advance of the event.
  • Daily parking fee is $5 per car. Beach wheelchairs are available at no charge, but must be requested in advance.

Start Planning The Wedding of Your Dreams

From the very deepest place in our hearts, we would like to thank everyone who made our wedding so special.

Tina Wilder and Kristina Petrillo thank you for working so hard on our event. It felt like we were the only wedding you were planning, when In reality you were planning many. You also recommended all of our vendors, and they were all top notch! Nothing I would do differently! Love you, guys!

Romantic Honeymoon Island and Weddings on Sand Key Beach just killed it! Thank you for all of your hard work and precision. We had our own bathhouse for guests which was amazing! The food was just outstanding, and the staff made sure us and our guests were never without.

There are not enough words. Our hearts are full.
