Welcome to Kings Beach, the largest public beach on the North Shore! Explore its nearly 700 feet of shoreline or spend the day on the water with a rental from North Tahoe Watersports. Rent a jet ski, kayak, water bike, or paddle boat, or enjoy a parasailing ride or private lake tour. Swimmers claim Kings Beach has one of the warmest beaches on Lake Tahoe do to the fact that it is south-facing and has a gradually deepening lake floor. There is a parking fee, but walkers and bikers can use the beach at no charge.

Enjoy a stroll on the walking paths that meander throughout King Beach Plaza and its patio-style courtyard. It is the site of many special events, including the summertime arts and crafts fairs. This beach is dialed with bathrooms, a basketball court, volleyball courts, horseshoes, barbeque and picnic areas, and a lakefront playground. The recreation area is in downtown Kings Beach, just off of Highway 28. Dogs are not allowed on the sandy beach at Kings Beach SRA year round, but within walking distance is Coon Street “dog friendly” beach where dogs are welcome. For other wonderful North Lake Tahoe beaches in the area view our Lake Tahoe beaches map and don’t forget the sunscreen!
