After an eventful morning at Antelope Canyon, we decided to spend the afternoon lounging lakeside at Wahweap Beach.
The views are stunning and the water felt amazingly cool and crisp, but it dropped off pretty severely right from shore which freaked me out.
After a perfect afternoon of chip eating, swimming, napping, and enjoying the view, we showered and headed off to explore Page (which we found quite underwhelming). We landed at the Dam Bar and Grille, which provided a welcome relief from being in the sun all day, and ice cold beer. There are no pictures because we were very disheveled and in need of shade and sustenance 🙂
On the way home, we stopped at the Glen Canyon Dam for pictures and to walk the bridge, before heading back to the campsite for s’mores and star-gazing. Overall, very solid day which set the tone for the whole trip.
The only downside for our beach time was the ¾ mile walk from the parking lot to the waterfront. Keep in mind we were there in early June of 2019, a time when the water level was very low, so this may not always be the case. It was no problem on the way down, but the uphill in the heat with all our beach gear was a bit of a struggle. I needed to go for a swim again after leaving the beach! Bring some sort of shade, since it is very sunny and you will roast without it. Next time, I definitely want to rent some kayaks as well.
