“Great beach and view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

This is an easily accessible beach in Kings Beach at north Lake Tahoe. Lovely vews of the lake and mountains. The water was very cold (in June), but very blue--sandy beach easy to walk on. Picnic tables in the shade.

“Great spot for recreation or just lake watching.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

We had some relatives visiting from Hong Kong and had never gotten a good look at Lake Tahoe. After a stop at the pioneer museum, we headed out around the lake and stopped in Kings Beach. They were able to take pictures and enjoy a stroll around the lake. This is an ideal spot because you can see across the Lake and see a lot of shoreline. Most vista points allow you to look over the lake. Kings beach puts you in the lake. This is a very popular summertime destination for tourists and locals alike.

“Breathtaking views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Great beach. Ice cold lake water. Beautiful views. Friendly local people. You can spend an entire day here, or just a few hours. Either way you'll leave feeling refreshed and renewed.

“One of few accsesses to a beach on Lake Tahoe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Very People-friendly with a variety of activities to participate in, kayak rentals, etc. A nice playground is there for children. The quality of the sand is questionable. It is within walking distance to eateries, coffee, souvenir shops. Evey year they host a fireworks display on July 3rd.,
