Great place to bring your dog, swim in the water and relax.

While we loved exploring South Lake Tahoe the one drawback was that we couldn't bring our dog to a lot of the beaches. This beach is super dog friendly with easy free parking and beautiful everywhere you look. Come here to swim, take pictures, have a picnic and relax.

The Taylor Creek Visitor Center, located about 3 miles down HWY 89, is a good place to start when exploring Lake Tahoe. Take the Lake of the Sky Trail 3/4 of a mile to the shore of Lake Tahoe.
