Relax at Baldwin Beach


Added by Jennifer Sommer

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.

Great beach for SUP

Ate on the beach after a paddle session. It was windy on the lake, but not so much on the beach itself

Nice little beach with snowy peaks

We ate lunch, skipped rocks, and swam here after a morning paddle session from Baldwin Beach to Emerald Bay. There was a wind advisory, and it was starting to get windy while we were paddling on the water, but the beach was fine. Plus, the background with snowy mountain peaks is great!

Baldwin Beach not dog friendly

Baldwin Beach is not dog friendly, and is a $10 daily fee. The dog friendly beach is called Kivu Beach, and is about a mile away from Baldwin. We used this post as a reference when visiting Tahoe, and hopefully this review can help prevent people from being misled.

Great beach!

This is a great beach to swim, paddle board, or kayak.
