Paddle from Kiva Beach to Emerald Bay

Kiva Beach - Search Nearby - Added by Brian Walker

Great workout. Gain a different perspective of one of the most beautiful places in all of Lake Tahoe. Rental SUPs available at nearby Baldwin Beach.

Grab your paddleboard or rent one from Baldwin Beach, and head out along the southwest shores of Lake Tahoe towards Emerald Bay. Enjoy the pristine blue water and keep your head up for the occasional osprey or bald eagle.

Once you make it to the bay, there are plenty of places to go. You can relax at the mouth of the bay, which is great because you usually can't go there. Want to go a littler further? Head into the bay, towards Fannette Island, and go explore. There is also Vikingsholm and the campground, so there are plenty of places to go explore.

Note: It is free to park at Kiva Beach, but parking is limited. Baldwin Beach is payed parking for about $8 a day.

Beautiful ride

Gorgeous views and not super crowded compared to some of the other parts of the lake. Plus Kiva has free parking and is dog friendly
