Sand Harbor -Lake Tahoe-Nevada State Park

Nevada's east shore is not known for it's sandy beaches... except for Sand Harbor. While most Nevada side beaches have coarse sand that is tough on the feet, Tahoe's prevailing breezes deposit a fine grained white sand here that is the harbor's namesake. However, the area's beauty is derived from the numerous rocks as much as the sand. It's not just about the beauty above water, either. Scuba diving and snorkelling are both very popular here.


Group Area
This is one of the finest public outdoor beach facilities you will find. It has a separate parking area, separate beach area with fantastic views, a pavilion with central grill, fire area, and running water.
Note: Guests arriving by car on busy days should arrive before 11:00 am or after3 pm. Once the general parking area is full, the entire parking lot is closed, even if there are open spots in the group area!

Concessions
Concessions and a restaurant are available on site. Parking will range from $7 to $12, depending on when you visit. A boat launch is also available when water depths permit.

Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival
One of the most awaited festivals each year is the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival at Sand Harbor. The festival, after a modest beginning at Sugar Pine Point 24 years ago, now garners attention as one of the nation's outstanding outdoor cultural events. This year's festival at Sand Harbor (July 11- August 24, 2014) will feature As You Like It, plus the always popular The D.G. Menchetti Young Shakespeare Program providing 15 free matinees suitable for children. Another special treat is the Sand Harbor Music Series, providing live music lakeside on Monday and Friday nights.
