Body Beach in Lake Havasu City is centrally located, and sits beside the very popular Rotary Park Beach, however the rough dirt roads to access Body Beach combined with the lack of amenities give this area the feel of a rogue wild beach.

Far fewer people venture to the dusty sandy shores at Body Beach. As there are no amenities with the exception of a lone picnic bench, and high clearance vehicles are necessary in order to navigate the sandy and rocky roads to the water's edge, those who do visit here are usually ensured a much quieter place than most of the surrounding water access beaches.

Body Beach contains about a half mile of sandy shoreline, most of which can be driven to by cars. The area tends to see a lot of use by those bringing personal watercraft to the river, or others looking for a peaceful waterside fishing area. The beach also has a popular buoy course, and visitors can often see jetskiers racing around the water just offshore.

A couple sizable coves in the river indent into Body Beach, creating calm waters for those looking to fish from a boat or raft.

In all, this beach has a much more wild feel to it, and makes a more rugged alternative to other manicured local Lake Havasu City area beaches.

Visitors should be aware that there are no bathrooms, water, or trash cans. The land is owned by the Arizona State Land Trust, and can be accessed from the corner of Park Ave and Mulberry Ave.
