Escape to paradise under the Florida sunshine at the Sheraton Sand Key Resort located at Clearwater Beach. Here you will have an experience that will bring you back for your next vacation.
The Sheraton Sand Key Resort allows you to relax on their 10-acre beach with white, powdery sand and clear water. While at the beach, enjoy the services of ordering a snack or tropical drink all without leaving your beach chair or cabana. Just steps away from the beach is the beachfront pool where you can soak up the rays or relax in their Jacuzzi. You can also enjoy signature cocktails from Sloe Joe’s Turtle Bar. They offer a wide range of cold, tropical drinks that will be sure to cool you off in the Florida sun.
Not only can you enjoy the beach, you can also enjoy all the nature that surrounds it. Loggerhead turtles have made this beach their home and come to the shore at night to lay their eggs. Ospreys used to come to Sand Key to hunt live fish, but now the bird has made the Sand Key County Park their home. Collecting shells is a common hobby among beach-goers and Sand Key beach has a great selection. There are also several parks in the surrounding area. Right next door is the Sand Key Park and Preserve where you can study the Barrier Island habitat. Fort DeSoto Park, Honeymoon Island State Park and Caladesi Island State Park are all great for day trips to swim, fish, picnic and study the natural habitat.
For those guests who like to stay physically fit, the Sheraton Sand Key Resort offers three all-weather tennis courts with complimentary use and no charge for racquets and balls. There is also a gym located on the top floor of the resort with a fully equipped workout facility and impeccable views of the beach and bay. You can also enjoy a massage or facial!
When it comes to dining, the resort offers its guest a great selection to fit their every need. At Rusty’s Bistro you can enjoy casual dining for breakfast beginning at 7 a.m. every morning. Rusty’s Bistro is also open for evening dining and prepares savory dishes using only Florida’s natural ingredients. For a more casual lunch and dinner experience, the Island Grille is open for guests at 11 a.m. and is ideal for a quick bite to eat.
Plan your perfect stay at the Sheraton Sand Key Resort and have the vacation of a lifetime. Beautiful beaches surrounded by Florida’s nature are awaiting your arrival. •
