Pope Beach 

As you leave South Lake Tahoe heading up the west shore on Hwy 89 you'll come to a series of beaches that all seem very similar in nature. The first of these is Pope Beach, which is basically a one mile long 300 foot wide strip of sand separating the Truckee Marsh from Lake Tahoe. Pope beach is operated by the USDA forest service, which means there will be a parking fee. This is an excellent beach for families, with lots of sand, room, clear shallow water, and relative shelter from the winds. The parking lot runs the entire length of the beach so there are no long walks. There are plenty of picnic tables and grills as well. Currently, the Forest Service is not always allowing the use of the grills. Don't be surprised to arrive and find them gone. There are also restrooms scattered along the length of the beach
