Easy to walk to, lots of parking, multiple kayaks and other water sports. Good beach area. Has walking paths to allow you access from a couple of blocks down the road so you don't have to park in the parking area.

The young woman looking at passes was so friendly and chatted with me while I was waiting for a friend. She helped me understand how the beach came to be and some Tahoe history. On hot days go EARLY!

This beach is so romantic! But I guess I’m partial. Awesome photos here. Wonderful place to spend a summer day. Bathrooms. And bar/restaurant too (separate entrance, and you can’t take alcohol to go). Minimal parking. Gets crowded mid-day in June-September. So don’t even think about...More

This was my first time visiting a beach in Tahoe. I usually visit in the winter. I was pleasantly surprised. It was clean and well kept. The water was clear, and we had plenty of room to spread out with our chairs. I was a...More
