Favorite beach on the island

Exceeded expectations and only 10 minutes from my hostel and a Safeway! I will be back tomorrow! It also wasn’t too crowded

Loved the beach here, by far our most liked place.
Sep 2020
The water was very clean, clear. The beaches are kept clean as well as onsite restrooms. Great place to spend morning or afternoon.

Great beach but it's time to ban motorized boats.
Sep 2020
Great beach. Clear water. Great views.
However the sand is not soft but comprises of sharp pebbles so make sure that your kids are wearing beach sandals. Also I hate the idea of letting such a large number of unruly lightly regulated rogue boaters on this lake. I wish that there was a policy to limit the total number of boaters to a very small number. It would be perfect if they could ban all motorized boats on this lake. Specially during long weekends the drunk boaters were clearly a danger to beach going swimmers and snorkelers (as the boats got too close) as well as to other boaters.

Kayak trip - NO TRAILERS ALLOWED
Aug 2020 • Couples
Our trip to Baldwin Beach was stopped at the gate. We wanted to launch our kayaks and paddle to Emerald Bay. Our kayaks are heavy sit upon style and we transport them on a small trailer. NO TRAILERS are allowed. Our disappointment was great as we had studied the park website and did not see any reference to no trailers allowed. I would offer that the Federal agency and it's concessionaire should state clearly in the website for Baldwin Beach that no trailers are allowed for any reason.

Crystal Clear Water to Swim, Kayak and SUP!!
Jul 2020
We went to two beaches while in South Tahoe: Baldwin Beach and Pope Beach. Of the two, we liked Baldwin Beach much better. The sand here is a little finer and not full of pine needles like at Pope Beach. You can rent kayaks and SUP at either beach for a very reasonable price. From Baldwin Beach, you can kayak to Emerald Bay and back in 2.5 hours. The $10 parking pass is good for all day. Bring some floats; so much fun in the water on a hot late-July day!

Beautiful and Quiet Beach
Jun 2020
Only $10 for easy parking and clean restrooms. Beautiful, quiet, and uncrowded beach. The water was clear and the beach clean. Lots of sand to walk in either direction.

It was a very cool beach it’s October so it was very cool outside. But we really enjoyed walking along the beach and shoreline of Lake Tahoe.

Good Beach for Busy Days
Aug 2019
This beach is a little less crowded on summer weekends than others that might be completely closed to parking. It’s a lovely beach, close to the parking lot and bathrooms, but lacking shade.

Perfect Beach! Best place in Tahoe in our opinion. Great coarse sand that was a rich bright color. Clear water (all of Tahoe is), picnic tables on beach to eat or relax. Easy parking and great access. Minimal
people compared to the crowds at other beaches.
