Other famous skylines have met their match in Southern Utah, a desert paradise of spectacular views. Whether you’re a photographer on the hunt for your next epic shot or you’re seeking an adventure with a gratifying view at the end, look no further.
Surrounded by some of the area’s most beautiful spots, Sand Hollow Resort is the ideal location to stay if you’re in town seeking an aesthetic oasis.
Sand Mountain Dunes (above)
Step outside your front door at Sand Hollow Resort and you’ll be met face-to-face with the Sand Mountain Dunes. Ride across naturally groomed sand and crawl over slick-rock to look out across the horizon from the highest point of the dunes. If you’re not comfortable enough to quest alone, tours are available. Call (844) 404-3260 for tour times, rental fees, or to book your reservation, today!
Yant Flats (Candy Cliffs)
As if the desert colors were spilled across the landscape by Willy Wonka himself, it’s no wonder the Yant Flats have been nicknamed the “Candy Cliffs.” This spot is truly a hidden gem, located less than 30 minutes from the resort in a small town area called Leeds. Nestled in the foothills of Pine Valley Mountain, a short mile hike will take you to the flats. From there, you can enjoy exploring the swirled sandstone landscape like a kid in a candy store!
Snow Canyon State Park
Snow Canyon State Park has it all — majestic views, hiking, rock climbing, and caving at your fingertips! The subtle interplay of light and shadow in the desert canyons make it a photographer’s paradise whether you’re equipped with your DSLR camera or a smartphone.
Book a local excursion to Snow Canyon State Park by calling 844-404-3260 today.
Located on the Utah-Arizona border, “The Wave” attracts sight-seekers from all walks of life to the Coyote Buttes. Sculpted by wind erosion, The Wave transports visitors to a mystical land where solid rock billows and dances around them.
In order to surf these sandstone waves, however, you’ll need to obtain a day permit in advance. This $7 per person permit system helps the Bureau of Land Management maintain the grounds and keeps crowds to a minimum.
Adventure in the gorge that runs through Zion National Park or drive up the canyon and discover a woody haven and serene reservoir by the same name: Kolob.
Located in Zion National Park, the lower Kolob Canyon is characterized by its sheer cliffs and breathtaking views. But if the hustle and bustle of Zion isn’t for you, head to higher ground for equally beautiful sights, much less frequented by crowds.
Sand Hollow Resort
Last but not least, make sure to check out our personal favorite view: the view from any of our Sand Hollow Resort balconies! The resort overlooks our stunning golf courses and a skyline extending from Pine Mountain to Zion National Park.
