Sand Key Park is your best family beach option in Clearwater. It's just a bit south of the main beaches and over the bridge but well worth it to get a nice big white sands beach for the fam. There's actually a nice long strip...More

When I was there it was cash only. There are usually plenty, but I recommend arriving early if you want a specific location.
