  • Amazing beach. Great for families and dogs. Not much shade, so bring hour own. Maybe a little too crowded for a pandemic.  more »
  • My kids loved this beach. It wasn't crowded like many of the others we went to at Tahoe. The wildlife there is an added bonus. Bald Eagles, Osprey, Ducks, and more!!  more »

  • Love this beach. Dogs are allowed...so more easy going people come here. Its more private and great beach when water isnt too high.
  • In A Nutshell: -Kiva Beach is an awesome beach to take your dogs. -It's a strip of sand that divides Lake Tahoe & a smaller body of very calm & shallow water, which is perfect for you & your dogs to swim in. -The beach has enough room for to lounge & relax, but since you have dogs running around, it's best to keep an active-restraint w/ your dogs by voice command. -The scenery is very beautiful, especially in June where there was still snow in the mountains, but the weather was warm. Overall, if you bring your dogs to South Lake Tahoe, I highly, highly recommend taking them to here to enjoy their vacation. They will never forget the experience!
