Nice view of Lake and play area

I visited this place with friends and family. It's nice place to visit you can easily spend 2-3 hour with friends and young kids. You can view nice sunset from Sand Harbor beach.

this is one of favorite spots on Lake Tahoe to take photos of family on the rocks and docks with majestic mother nature as the awesome backdrop.

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.

We came in from Sacramento and were headed to Reno. We stopped at Sand Harbor for about an hour .... the beach is broad and sandy, and provides lovely views of the surrounding mountains. The cluster of green-tinted mountains and the blue, blue water is particularly striking. There is a small pier if you don't want to get your .... More

This is a perfect sand harbor where you can sun or enjoy water sports relatively safely. Also, the water temperature is better here because it is not as deep as the rest of the lake. You can also launch your boat here.

We visited in the winter, but the view is breathtaking. The beach in in a little cove and the lake and mountains off in the distance makes the beach just an awesome place to visit. It is a perfect place to take the kids for a great summer day. The playground and surroundings are a great family day.

There is a reason the parking lot is full in the summer! Get there early and spend the day. Pristine clear water offers a great swimming area. (This is the beginning of the Trans Tahoe Relay across the lake!) Warm sand and clean bathrooms. Then there is the backdrop of the snow capped mountains and trees which are stunning. There... More

Love it! This beach/park is the epitome of what Lake Tahoe has to offer: sandy beaches, giant boulders to climb, pristinely clear blue water, the stunning backdrop of the mountains...when in the area, if we have time to visit only one place, this is where we come. A great place to get your feet wet, bask in the sun, take... More
