It's a bit of a drive from WHITEHORSE, but if you are going to go to Skagway this is on the way! perhaps spend afew hours in Carcross too it has a lot of history to offer

this beach is great this time of year, the snow has not yet melted in the mountains and the water is low so you have miles of beach ---- too bad it is not +30 and no bar near by as this beach would be able to compete with any beach in mexico

Honestly, I live in Whitehorse and had no idea that we had such a wonderful beach so close to home. We went on a spectacular day and the water was even warm enough to dip in. The sand is nice and there is ice cream near by. Parking is very close. A great place to bring family and friends.

What an interesting place. The sandy beach and the surrounding area is worth the stop. We enjoyed our stroll through the Carcross desert. Not much for groceries, so bring your own and nothing opens early.

Stand on the beach and imagine thousands of Stampeders in their homemade boats heading off to the Gold fields in the Klondike. bring a scarf as it is almost always windy then wander through Carcross...good way to spend a day...everything is free except the ice cream from the General store

This is a very relaxing walk in the sand. There are birds singing and flowers blooming high on the shore. This a great photo opportunity for the camera buff

This is an odd picture for this spot. The mural is actually on a building in Whitehorse and has nothing to to with Bennett Beach!! However-the beach is kept clean and recently, there has been a nice deck with tables and toilets added. A lovely spot for a summer afternoon

Latrines ans small deck available, this sandy beach offer quietness on the shore of lake Bennett. Can be really windy at times, cause the wind comes from Skagway Alaska and pick-up speed on this very long lake.

A great place for a beach walk. You can walk for a long ways and sit in the dunes and soak up a bit of sun if you get tired. It is usually windy, however, so bring something to cover up with. The view is amazing. Looking down the Lake you are looking at the route many of the gold... More
