This One Destination Has The Absolute Bluest Water In Arizona

Arizona isn’t shy about showing off her beauty. It surrounds us in rugged mountains, dramatic colors, sculptural plants, and precious water sources. Nothing here quite looks the same, not even our water sources! They range from desert riparian areas, washes that only see seasonal flow, chocolate-colored waterfalls, and lakes that are either crystal clear, muddy, or tinted blue.

Most people tend to think of blue water as a deep cerulean but there’s one spot here in Arizona that proves it can be stunning in a much lighter hue. That place is Havasu Creek.

Interested in checking out another gorgeous—and more accessible—Arizona creek? See our article Some People Call This Creek In Arizona A Little Slice Of Paradise which features Fossil Creek. It’s another spot that cannot be missed!
