Lake Tahoe Beaches

Beat the heat in Lake Tahoe with these five great Lake Tahoe activities!

Kayaks & Paddle Boats

Try renting kayaks or paddle boats out on the lake to cool off! Lake Tahoe makes it easy to get started with several options for renting. But make sure you get to your rental nice and early, as the equipment is available on a first come, first served basis. You’ll love this opportunity to cool off as it puts you close to the coolness of the water and gives you a chance to be active!


Getting soaked while experiencing rapids is a thrilling way to stay cool! Truckee River is a great place to experience this with your whole family. Rafters of all experience levels can get what they’re looking for as Truckee Rivers offers Class II-IV whitewater rapids. This river is only an hour and half away from Lake Tahoe. Take advantage of its close proximity and get your fill of adventure!

Kings Beach

Kings Beach has opportunities for learning lake history, receiving more focused instruction in kayaking and paddle boarding and you can make reservations instead of having to risk the first come first serve basis. Kings Beach makes it possible for you to ensure you will stay cool with its reservations!


Taking a dip in the lake to stay cool is a no brainer! Take a trip to Sand Harbor and enjoy a wade in the water or exercise your swimming skills and take a few laps. No trip to Tahoe is complete with a dip in the lake! So make sure you add it into your itinerary while you’re visiting the lake!

M.S. Dixie II- Zephyr Cove

A great way to stay cool is to take a ride on this classic paddlewheel boat. This 500 passenger vessel is the largest one available on Lake Tahoe. The award winning vessel takes off from Zephyr Cove and offers visitors tours of Emerald Bay, one of the most sought after sites on Lake Tahoe. Other options on the M.S Dixie II include romantic sunset cruises, private charters and evenings fill with music and dancing! There is no better way to beat the heat than taking a cruise!
