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.

Sun, sand, and surf are surprisingly easy to find in the Gem State! Tell us which Idaho beaches are on your personal favorites list.
