Straddling the Arizona/Utah border, Lake Powell has 1,960 miles of shoreline - more than the whole west coast of America. This vast body of deep blue water contained within red-orange cliff walls and the wild beauty of Glen Canyon is a man-made reservoir, resulting from the building of the Glen Canyon Dam on the Colorado River.
Lake Powell is ideal for houseboat holidays . Meander through the various canyons and when you feel like a swim - drop the anchor and dive in! Sandy beaches in the desert? Why yes there are and some of the best in the west!
If you don't fancy a houseboat, Lake Powell is only a 5 hour drive from Phoenix or Scottsdale so you could spend a few days canoeing, exploring or renting a powerboat for the day.
