What are the best beaches in Las Vegas?

OK, you caught us. Las Vegas isn't exactly known for its beaches in the way that the UK isn't known for its sunny spells, but that doesn't mean there aren't any. The people of Vegas took this into their own hands by making their own beaches (we admire the dedication). Some are located in hotel grounds, but they're all open to the public, so if you're still craving some of the sandy stuff, check these guys out:

  • Mandalay Beach – say hello to 11 whopping acres of tropical, sandy beachfront - right along the Strip

  • VooDoo Beach - you'll find this little slice of beach heaven at Rio Casino Hotel, with multiple pools surrounded by sand. There are also waterfalls and Jacuzzis, which - no - you can't usually find at the beach, but this place went one better.

  • Wet ‘n’ Wild Las Vegas - a waterpark in the desert, what could go wrong? The name kind of speaks for itself with this one, but if you're looking for a side of water with your sand, this is the place to get it.

  • Lake Las Vegas - if you venture a bit further away from the Strip (we know it's hard), you'll find this public beach surrounding a lake with tons of watersports on offer and an epic inflatable obstacle course that's giving major Total Wipeout vibes. IYKYK.

What are the top hotels in Las Vegas?

Don't be fooled into thinking that your hotel in Las Vegas is just somewhere to rest your head after a wild night on the slots - 9 times out of 10 it's where all the action happens, so buckle up and get a load of these showstoppers:

  • Caesars Palace - any hotel with 'palace' in the name is bound to be a good'un, and this one's famous for a reason. With 17 restaurants to pick from, world-class entertainment and seven pools to dip into, there's never a dull at this place

  • Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino Hotel - frozen yoghurt, poolside cabanas, adults-only beach clubs and a 24-hour kitchen-bar - that's about all you need to know about this place!

  • The Venetian - you'll probably guess from the name that this hotel's all about those Italy vibes, with gondolas floating along a canal (both inside and outside), a huge shopping centre and a gelato stand

  • Bellagio - your night out (or in) is sorted here - with a casino and multiple night clubs on site, plus it's where you'll find those iconic fountains with the coloured lights and the music

  • Flamingo Las Vegas - burlesque, magic shows and famous drag acts are on the cards every night at this fab pink hotel - a firm fave with the LGBTQ+ crowd.

  • Luxor Hotel & Casino - this pyramid-shaped hotel is one you can't miss, stacked with facilities, entertainment you won't forget in a heartbeat, a fro-yo counter and even an on-site pizzeria.
