Sand Harbor is one of Lake Tahoe's most special places. Up high you can get great photos showing the blue-green-turquoise waters of the lake. Down low you can crawl, climb or scale the amazing boulders to find your perfect photo vantage point. This is a great location from which to view the sunsets over Lake Tahoe.

Well worth stopping in for an hour or so to see coast line of Lake Tahoe. Make sure to take the trail with interpretive descriptions of the area.
