Lake Tahoe Beaches

Explore the gorgeous Lake Tahoe beaches including dog-friendly locations on the north and west shores of the lake.

Sand Harbor Beach - Lake Tahoe

Sand Harbor

Nevada's east shore is not known for its 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 snorkeling are both very popular here.
