Sandy Beach, Tahoe Vista, California

Sandy Beach, Tahoe Vista, California

Sandy Beach, Tahoe Vista, California If you’re looking for a nice sandy beach that is away from it all, check out Sandy Beach, in Tahoe Vista, California.

Sandy Beach is a public beach, located on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe in Tahoe Vista, California.  The setting here is wonderful and the sandy is like powder.  It feels like you could be at the ocean.  The water is shallow making it easy to wade in, and because it’s shallow, the water tends to be warmer here.

If you’re not looking for Sandy Beach you may miss this one.  There isn’t a lot of signage on Highway 28 (North Lake Blvd.), and when you drive by, it just looks like a vacant, wooded lot from the street.  You’ll find Sandy Beach located directly across from the Spindleshanks restaurant, which is at 6873 North Lake Blvd. in the commercial core of Tahoe Vista.

Sandy Beach has a couple of picnic tables, a temporary bathroom, but is not a dog friendly beach area.  Those with a four-legged friend will have to go to the Carnelian Bay public beaches, the Bristlecone Street dog beach area, or Hurricane Bay on the West Shore.
