Sink Your Toes In The Sand At The Longest Beach In Colorado
Colorado is known for its mountains, plains, and all-around splendor… but beaches? Not so much. Believe it or not, our state is actually home to a number of must-visit sandy beaches, including this particularly huge one that you will want to sink your toes into.
Blue Mesa Reservoir is Colorado’s largest lake - and you’ll definitely want to pay it a visit this summer.
Located near Gunnison and spanning across 20 miles and featuring 96 miles of shoreline, Blue Mesa is an outdoorsman's (and woman's) dream come true.
Popular attractions include boating…
...and other outdoor recreation opportunities.
While you really can't go wrong with anything you choose to do at Blue Mesa Reservoir, our favorite part of all is its warm, sandy beach!
Seriously… is this still Colorado?! This looks like paradise!
As if you need yet another reason to visit this lovely locale, the epic Blue Mesa Beach Bash takes place in August and features live music, a stand-up paddleboard competition, delicious food and drinks, and all kinds of warm-weather fun.
The official date for the 2019 Beach Bash has yet to be announced, so keep checking the Blue Mesa Reservoir
and the Travel Crested Butte
for updates as we get closer to August!
