Lake Tahoe Sand Harbor

Sand Harbor is located along State Route 28, just three miles south of Incline Village. The area offers 55 acres of paradise – expansive sandy beaches, rocky coves, and panoramic views of the east shoreline.  Swimmers and scuba divers enjoy the interesting rock formations, gently sloping beaches, and Lake Tahoe’s trademark crystal clear water. Boaters and beach goers alike will want to get an early start in the summer, because the boat launch fills up fast! It includes two wave protected double ramps with docks and adjacent parking.

During the summer months Sand Harbor features a visitor center and gift shop, snack bar and grill, and group area for up to 100 guests. Pets are not allowed and you can also expect a parking fee, bathrooms, watercraft inspections, and Beach Patrol in the summer months. Once you get there you will soon discover why this is one of Lake Tahoe’s best beaches. You don’t have to limit yourself to Sand Harbor when there many other great North Lake Tahoe beaches nearby.

Families love the shaded picnic areas with tables and barbeques. The paved walkways make them wheel chair accessible and the Sand Harbor Nature Trail is also handicap-accessible. It is 1/3 mile long and offers interpretive signs and gorgeous views. There is also a ½ mile trail to Memorial Point, with access to secluded beaches and rock areas to explore. Come in July and August for the popular Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival. It’s a “most attend” event if your vacationing in the summer.
