The Underrated Beach With The Whitest, Most Pristine Sand In Minnesota
We all know that Minnesota has more than 10,000 lakes – 11,842, to be exact. And with those thousands of lakes comes 90,000 miles of shoreline. It should come as no surprise, then, that Minnesota has some truly outstanding beaches. From the pink of Iona’s Beach to the Black Beach of Silver Bay, there are as many unique beaches are there are lakes.
But are there any white-sand beaches like you’d see in a tropical resort? It turns out, there’s at least one. Your visit probably won’t come with a fruity drink, but the beauty of Minnesota’s whitest beach is more than worth a visit.
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!
