“What a surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

The beach gooes on for what seems like miles. Not many folks on the beach in early September, the water was warm ( for Tahoe) this was a great spot to put in the SUPs

“There are better places”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

Pope beach has an entry fee and is kind of narrow area which is very populated. We much prefer the Kiva picnic area further down the road. It's free, the area of trees is much bigger and it's less populated overall.

“Beauty beyond words.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

Especially in September and October when the salmon spawn I am bringing my grandson for the first time to see them. It is such a beautiful place to come and get in touch with the inner self...ME!

Beautiful, clean beaches. Crystal clear water. Plenty of picnic tales and restrooms. A great beach to visit in Tahoe.

“Great place to swim”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

If you don't mind the water temperature being on the cool side, this is a great place for a plunge. Like all of Tahoe this proves to be another wonderful beach to visit.
