premier party beach in Lake Tahoe.
||Crowded. Coarse sand.
Park on the road
Parking $8 (at press time)
Zephyr Cove has just about
everything you could want in a beach, except
palm trees. Over a mile of sand, although it is coarse to walk on, the
region's best volleyball, a 500+ passenger vessel, a 36 passenger
catamaran, a huge grassy group event
area, every kind of water sport rental you could imagine, and the
Sunset Bar overlooking it all with cocktail servers roaming the beach.
The combination of huge group areas and bars at the beach make Zephyr
Cove a great option for an outdoor wedding. Be sure to get your
reservations and wedding invitations out early
though since Summer can book up fairly quickly here. The beach does
have a certain party atmosphere that some
families may find offensive. The further you are from the bar, the less
of a problem it is. This can usually be avoided just by staying a
distance from the bar area. With a mile of beach there is plenty of
room. There is a $8 (at press time) parking fee but even so, it often
becomes unavailable. When this happens they will park you at the high
school across Hwy 50 and shuttle you to the beach.
Zephyr Cove also features a modern campground, lodging, beachfront
cabins, stables, the largest snowmobile operation west of the rockies,
and much more.
