North Lake Tahoe Carnelian Bay Beach - Carnelian Bay, CA Located by Sierra Boat Company and the popular lakefront restaurant Gar Woods, this is a wide, flat and sandy beach that gets plenty of sun. Enjoy relaxing at this popular spot and walk out on the Gar Woods pier, or enjoy a world-famous beverage called a “Wet Woody” from Gar Woods restaurant. The water at the end of the pier is crystal clear, and there are often fish swimming around the pillars. Kayaks can be rented from Kayak Tahoe, which is located right on the beach. Chambers Landing - Tahoma, CA Located just nine miles to the South of Tahoe City on Hwy 89, this is a flat and sandy beach adjacent to Chambers Landing Restaurant and Dock Bar, which entertains customers sipping the famous Chambers Punch. The swimming area is safe for children and there is a special beach section that allows dogs. Parking is complimentary and concessions include sodas, water and grill food at the Dock Bar. Commons Beach - Tahoe City, CA Free weekly concerts and a regular Farmer’s Market throughout the entire summer are always popular attractions to this beach. Tucked in the heart of Tahoe City, this popular beach is just steps away from many shops and restaurants. An extensive children’s playground and grassy area are slightly uphill from the sandy shoreline. The warm shallow water is great for young children and older individuals as well. Kings Beach State Recreation Area - Kings Beach, CA Located in the heart of Kings Beach off of Hwy 28, this beach features several volleyball and basketball courts, an easily accessible boat launch, a large public pier and scattered BBQ areas. The half mile sandy beach is flat and offers great swimming, kayaking and stand up paddleboarding. Skip across North Lake Blvd for a quick burger or some delicious Mexican food. This area also features a weekly Farmer’s Market and movie screenings on Tuesday nights, concerts on Thursdays, and Arts and Crafts Fairs on weekends. Moon Dunes Beach - Tahoe Vista Located near Pino Grande Avenue in Tahoe Vista, this is a secluded beach that requires a bit of dune hiking to access. With parking available along North Lake Blvd, the easiest way to the beach is walking along the trail that follows a small creek up and over several sand dunes. This creek walk leads to over 600 feet of pristine sand, perfect for sunbathing and swimming. Bathrooms are also present but dining options are limited so this beach makes for an ideal picnic spot. Skylandia Beach - Tahoe City, CA Hidden in the back of Lake Forest, this beach features a public pier, picnic tables and BBQ grills, and is definitely pet friendly. To make this beach even more appealing, the diving pier that extends out into the lake is always adventurous. Sand Harbor - Incline Village, NV This pristine sandy beach is located down the East Shore of Lake Tahoe, just south of Incline Village. With easy access to the beachfront and nominal fees associated with parking, this is always a popular spot. Views are absolutely stunning from the beach, especially when the sun sets over the mountains to the Southwest end of the lake. During the summer outdoor music concerts are offered for visitors, as well as theater plays. The Shakespeare Festival attracts visitors from far and wide, and takes place at the outdoor amphitheater overlooking the lake. Speed Boat Beach/ Buck’s Beach - Crystal Bay, NV This beach, while having its official address in Nevada, is located right at the end of the King’s Beach town limits which means beachgoers are able to walk from state to state all in one beach. From North Lake Blvd the easiest way to get there is down a road called Speedboat Ave, which leads directly to the beachfront. Parking is available along Speedboat Ave as well as anywhere on the roadsides along the beachfront. Years and years in the water have created unique rock formations perfect for climbing and jumping off into the water. Unfortunately dogs are not allowed, and glass is prohibited as well.
