Lake Havasu Beaches
You’d think that in a landlocked state like Arizona, the situation would
be grim for beach lovers. Not so! Lake Havasu, on Arizona's "West Coast", serves up a supreme Arizona beach experience:
beautiful sandy lake beaches and clean, clear, fresh water that’s
comfortable for swimming most of the year. With few or no waves, it’s
perfect for cooling off in the summer when temperatures soar, and it
remains warm and relaxing well into fall.
These lovely Arizona beaches are
the perfect hangout spots for families – you can truly relax in the warm
sand without worrying about dangerous fish or riptide currents. If you
go on a boat, pristine private beaches are plentiful and perfect for a
picnic or sunbathing in solitude. Check out the most popular boat-in beaches! People who boat and hang out at the
lake are friendly and social.
