Beautiful place to visit alone or very romantic place for a couple during the off Season!!! Also if you are looking for a more lively time, summer is best!! Wonderful beach with the most gorgeous water, but you will have to share! Locals and others like to bring their boats to this area and have a great time!😎

Absolutely gorgeous place. Lake Tahoe has to be the most beautiful place i've ever seen. Great for photography and laying on the beach all day. Paddle boarding was offered and there are rocks for climbing and you can jump off one of them into the water. Crystal clear blue water, although it's a little chilly! If you're planning to go...

A lovely location to spend a couple of hours to admire the serenity of the lake. Took my children here and we walked around and played on the rocks. Just a splendid location to relax and taken in beauty.

Sand harbors gradual slope into the water makes the water in the harbor warmer that a lot of other places..this also makes it safer for kids. Lots of facilities there for food, drinks and rentals of all kinds. This is somewhat of a family oriented beach (partiers often... More

Wowsers! Total paradise. Thankfully we visited in early December. There were only a handful of people in the entire area. So for us, it was breath taking. Unspoilt and awe inspiring. The water is crystal clear. The sand soft and golden. The pine trees tall and imposing. I can't recommend this place more highly. But visit out of season to... More

Usually overcrowded like beaches in Southern California. There is a fee to go there. Internal driving paths are dangerous. Gorgeous view from the shoreline If you can get in. Spring and autumn are less crowded. .

We went there just few days after the winter storm. Really nice to see amount of snow contrasts with the sky and the sea. There are little trails that you can walk around the area too.

A very spiritual location! I come here at least once a year to get re-grounded and focused (and maybe eagle watch). If you are into meditation, great place to come meditate!

Easy walk on the path and fun to explore around the granite boulders and walk on the beach. Incredible how clear Lake Tahoe is.
