Incredibly georgeous beach. Visit it for Shakespeare in August, a wonderful month long event. Great for families, a nice clean beach, gentle waves.

We went here over Thanksgiving week so there weren't a lot of beach goers this time of year. This is a gorgeous beach with a boardwalk and a photographers dream! The boardwalk has placards along the way to educate you on the lake, vegetation, rocks, etc. There are boulders here the size of small Volkswagens. The water is crystal clear.... More

We have enjoyed going to Sand Harbor for day outings. Its a very nice beach area as well as a good place to go boating. The views of the rocks in the lake are nice to take photos of. We have visited in the summer and fall. Its pretty any time of day, but being on the east side of... More

Beautiful Beach, even during the winter. We took some great pics here. Saw little blue lobsters. Thought that was weird :-)

This beach was beautiful. Coarse sand is light in color covering a clean, well kept beach. Bathrooms are full service (they flush and there's water to wash with.) We were here in the afternoon and stayed until sunset, with the beach to ourselves. Closer to sunset the waves began so you could listen like you were on calm ocean water.... More

If you visiting the Lake Tahoe area Sand Harbor is a must. The rock formations and the beach are just a great place to visit or spend the day. The water is so beautiful. Looking up the mountain from this place is almost unreal. We stopped for about an hour because we wanted to go the whole way around the... More

I've drove around the entire lake. Sand Harbor and Inspiration Point vista (emerald bay) must be 2 of the best points to view the lake. The views are simply magical. Even though i arrived at Sand Harbour late (~6pm) on a cloudy day, the views are still fantastic. There's a vista and a beach located at different part of the... More

Although it was off-season and the visitors center was closed, we had a nice walk around & through the park. Can only imagine how wonderful the evenings at the amphitheater are in the summer.

I loved this beach…I have visited 3 beaches in Tahoe: Zephyr Cove, Kings Beach and Sands Beach. Well Sands Beach takes the prize hands down. It is so clean and beautiful.If you want more of a beach feel go to the other side and there is a longer beach. But I loved the little cove, I felt comfortable letting my... More
