Nevada's east shore is not known for it's sandy beaches... except for Sand Harbor. While most Nevada side beaches have coarse sand that is tough on the feet, Tahoe's prevailing breezes deposit a fine grained white sand here that is the harbor's namesake. However, the area's beauty is derived from the numerous rocks as much as the sand. It's not just about the beauty above water, either. Scuba diving and snorkelling are both very popular here.
