Hike to Secret Cove

0.9 miles 209 ft gain  - Out-and-Back Trail

Added by Elena Pearson

A little turquoise beach nestled in a cove in Lake Tahoe.

Take a short little hike down from HWY 28 to Secret Cove to relax on the beach on sunbathe on rocks. The water is incredibly clear and has different shades of turquoise. There are many rocks to climb on and the water is great for swimming.

It gets crowded early, and is a nude beach, so plan accordingly.

There is a parking lot as well as street parking.

Great stop in Lake Tahoe

It's a nude cove with lots of people sunning themselves. The water is incredible here. Short hike down to the cove, but pretty steep.

Beautiful!

But don’t be surprised if you see some nakie people :) My mom was caught off guard, ha! Beautiful views, with great boulders. Makes for lovely pics! Amazing kayaking and SUP opportunities!
