The Underrated Sandy Beach In Arizona You Absolutely Need To Visit

When most Arizonans think of a perfect, white sandy little beach, we probably don’t think of it in terms of having it mostly to ourselves. But think again! Sure, if you want a lively beach filled with people who are also having a great afternoon by the water, then Arizona does have those beaches too. And if you want a quiet day of alternating between dipping your toes in the white sand and in the blue water, then head to this little underrated gem on the Colorado River.
