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

We used to do Sand Harbor when I was a kid in the 70's. Since then, the parking situation hasn't improved and the crowds are worse. I'd pick a "friendlier" beach. Still, it's Tahoe... it's great!

This was supposed to just be a bathroom stop on our 72 mile drive around Lake Tahoe but it turned into an hour long exploration of the amazing rock formations. There was a sand beach on one side and an other worldly collection of boulders on the other side. It was hard to wrap our minds around what we were... More

Sand Harbor at sunset is an extraordinarily beautiful place at sunset. It's peaceful, expansive, and breathtaking. I loved seeing the snowcapped mountains on the other side of the lake. But from the beach to the marriage of ice and rock, its definitely a place to spend with a loved one or to enjoy a nice meditation. I've attached a picture... More

We had this place recommended to us by a local and we were very glad we decided to visit it. The whole of the Lake Tahoe region is beautiful but this is such a special place and well worth a visit.

The view is spectacular and the half mile walking trail, with detailed signs about the Tahoe area, is very informative. The beach is second to none. The huge boulders and turquoise colored lake are a feast on the eyes. This is a must see.

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
