Beaches in Arizona

Arizona has more shoreline then the entire west coast of the United States but it is not a destination known for its white sandy beaches. There are plenty of places to swim on Arizona's lakes and rivers but not many sandy beaches. Visitors to Arizona's lakes and rivers are usually more interested in recreational sports such as boating, fishing, water skiing, and river rafting then they are in lying on a beach all day. But that being said, there ARE a few sandy beaches in Arizona, and even one full-on beach resort. Here are some of the best beaches in Arizona:
