Beaches

Lake Tahoe has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Spectacular views, clean mountain air, and super clear waters that vary in temperature depending on your location at the lake.

The sun is very intense at the altitude where you find Lake Tahoe.
Wear sunblock and sunglasses even on cloudy days, you don’t want to go home with a painful sunburn!
