Sand Key is a barrier island on Florida’s Gulf Coast that stretches from Madeira Beach through Redington Beach, North Redington Beach, Redington Shores, Indian Shores, Indian Rocks Beach, Belleair Shore, and Belleair Beach into Clearwater. The Clearwater portion of the island includes Sand Key Park (a Pinellas County park south of Clearwater Beach) and the community of Island Estates. It closes at dark, has picnic and fishing accommodations, a nature trail, beach concession stands, and very spacious parking lots. By contrast, the main part of Clearwater Beach is so densely developed that it can be difficult to navigate by car. These two islands as well as the island containing the Island Estates neighborhood belong to the city of Clearwater, whose downtown core a.k.a. “Cleveland Street District” lies a couple of miles to the east over the newly completed Clearwater Memorial Causeway.
