The Sheraton Sand Key Resort is an ideal place to stay in the Clearwater area if you want to enjoy a relative amount of peace of quiet. Found right next to Sand Key Park, which is just across the Clearwater Pass from Clearwater Beach, this fairly priced resort enjoys a location that is just far enough off the beaten path. You'll be within walking distance of some restaurants and shops during your stay at the Sheraton Sand Key, and you can easily hop on a bus to get to Clearwater proper if you are up for an elevated level of hustle and bustle. A large beach is just outside your door at the Sheraton Resort in Clearwater, so it's understandable if you don't stray too far from the resort's ten-acre grounds.
The beaches on Sand Key, which is the island on which the Sheraton Sand Key Resort can be found, are among the best beaches in Florida. As such, you could hardly choose a better beach vacation destination. The Sheraton Sand Key boasts a private beach for its guests to enjoy, and it's ideal for water sports. You can rent a wave runner, or jet ski, if you're up for some excitement, or you and some friends can play a game of beach volleyball. Beach chairs are available for rent if you prefer kicking back and relaxing, and you can also rent an umbrella or a more private beach cabana. The relatively calm waters at the beach here encourage swimming for all ages, and you can also go swimming in the resort's pool.
While the outdoor swimming pool at the Sheraton Resort in Clearwater is small by resort standards, it is heated and offers splendid views of the Gulf of Mexico. When you're not swimming at the pool, you can relax in a poolside chair with a drink in hand. You can also hit the resort's beachside hot tub, which is especially nice after a full day of golf or shopping. In addition to a swimming pool and a hot tub, other facilities and amenities that you can take advantage of at the Sheraton Sand Key Resort include a state-of-the-art fitness center, a small tennis complex, onsite specialty shops, and a business center. There is no cost to play tennis at the tennis complex, so don't forget to bring your favorite racket if you like to play. If you prefer golf to tennis, there are some good Clearwater golf courses to choose from, not to mention plenty of inviting courses in the general Tampa and St Petersburg area.
