10 Incredible Beaches in Idaho You Have To Check Out This Summer

So far on IdahoOnly, we’ve talked about island getaways. We’ve talked about waterfront dining. We’ve even covered the best inns and campgrounds to stay on your next family outing. But we’ve yet to talk BEACHES.

Warm sand and pebbles to bury your toes in, gently lapping lake tides, and the relaxing sounds of a light breeze ruffling the treetops are some of the best things one can experience come summer. Fortunately, for an inland state, Idaho has a surprising number of beaches that offer the same luxurious beach experience that coastal states offer, but without the crowds. So grab a lounge chair and beach towel, and maybe an umbrella for some shade, and check out these restful Idaho beaches.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
