  • One of my favorite beaches in Lake Tahoe! It can get pretty packed during holidays.
  • Super nice beach access with a lot of parking.
  • Great, long beach on the south shore of Lake Tahoe. One of the best natural places to swim anywhere, the water is shallow with to stand up in for a good couple hundred feet out at least, with a nice sandy bottom. They also have kayak, SUP and petal boats for rent. Bears were in the vicinity when we were there.
  • You can walk out into the lake forever before water reaches your neck. The clearest Lake water I've ever seen. Very nice beach. Get here early. Parking will often run out.
  • it cost $8 dollar entry fee per vehicle. the peach is clean and feel relaxing.
