Yet another fun destination on Lake Powell. You could spend weeks exploring all of the canyons and landmarks. This one is easy to find.

The Sand King is a huge pile of sand that extends from the top of a canyon all the way down to the water. It's a bit of a strenuous (but short) hike to the top, but then you can roll, jump, dive, or otherwise make your way down this gigantic and steep pillow of fine white sand. We weren't even looking for the sand dune and just happened upon it, although we had heard the legends. Conveniently, the Sand King is located directly across Wahweap Bay from the Wahweap Marina. It is one canyon to the west of Ice Cream Canyon. There is a superb sandy beach at the mouth of the canyon where you can park your houseboat, and then you can either walk or drive a smaller boat back into the small canyon with the dune. Oddly, people have carved out miniature foot and hand steps into the canyon walls, even where it is straight up. A buddy and I traversed one of these "staircases" over a 20 foot cliff and it was ultra sketchy. Be careful, and have fun!
