Given that most of Nevada is essentially a desert, the last thing you would expect to see is a beach! However, in a little town called Laughlin, they actually do have a beach of sorts.
Sat next to the Colorado River, one of the few places you will find water in Nevada, this tranquil beach is a hive of activity during the warmer months, though even during the off season, it’s a pleasant and picturesque stroll, or if you prefer, a decent 30-minute jog.
If you are more a fan of soaking up the sun, when the river is low (it is controlled by a dam) there is heaps of space for you to get your beach towel out, a cooler box and simply enjoy the sun.
The beach is also ideal if you have kids, firstly because it is free, and secondly the fresh air is good for all of you. You will also find plenty of supply cabins selling water, soda, and more importantly, beer! They also sell various bits and pieces you may need like sun cream, ice cream and various beach necessities.
There are also plenty of beach rental huts with boats, jet skis, or even boat tours offering a 90-minute tour and lunch for as little as $10 a head. Certainly a good way to kill some time without breaking the bank!
