Relax on Sandy Shores

Baldwin Beach is the perfect spot for relaxation! Slightly lesser known than many other South Lake Tahoe beaches, it can have the feeling of a secluded local spot, though it's very easy to get to (turn off is right off of Hwy 89).

There is a parking fee of $8 but most people that visit this beautiful natural escape say that the fee is totally worth it. Unlike some other Tahoe beaches, there are very few rocks, so it's easy to run around barefoot and relax in the sand or set up a picnic to enjoy with family or friends. This is also a very popular boat launch spot for kayakers, as it is close to Emerald Bay.
