The Hidden Beach In Vermont With Clear Waters That Rival The Caribbean
As soon as the mercury starts to climb, it’s natural to crave wide open spaces and somewhere cool to splash around. This charming little beach in Vermont has beautiful waters that are an almost tropical blue hue. Here’s what you need to know about visiting.
Are you looking for the perfect place to spread a beach towel and catch some rays? This little beach in Shaftsbury State Park might be just the spot.
Lake Shaftsbury offers a pristine sandy shore that’s ideal for families with small children or anyone looking for soft sand to settle into. It’s kept nice and clean, so you can wander around barefoot without worrying.
On a clear day, the waters of the lake are perfectly blue and almost tropical. You’ll love paddling through the crystal-clear waves.
Along with the sandy beach, the park offers plenty of grass to stretch out on and a picnic area. Kids will love running around in the play area, too.
Feel like a paddle? You can rent canoes, kayaks, rowboats, and even pedal boats right at the park.
Though you’re definitely allowed (and highly advised) to bring your own yummy snacks and drinks, there is a snack bar right at the beach. They serve classic summer treats and the staff can answer general questions about the park.
Starting in June of 2019, the park will be allowing dogs everywhere but the sandy beach. There will also be a new pavilion area and extended opening hours. Stop by soon to check out Vermont’s own "Caribbean" spot.
