Calawee Cove, Rubicon Cove, Vikingsholm at D. L. Bliss State & Emerald Bay State Parks:
Not a whole lot of parking there down past the DL Bliss campground, we usually try to get there before 10am to make sure they'll sell us a parking pass before it fills up.
Go all the way to end of the road past Lester Beach to a trail down to Calawee Cove Beach.
From the trailhead at the first parking lot near the campground the Rubicon Trail takes you 1.5 miles to Rubicon Cove Beach (a hidden non-maintained beach along the trail).
Another 2 miles takes you to the Vikingsholm Beach.
Skylandia State Park Beach North of Tahoe City.
Head to Lake Forest Road, off of Highway 28, to get there.
Possible Nude sunbathers.
Moon Dunes Beach, Tahoe Vista
perfect for swimming or kayaking. An easy jaunt from North Lake Boulevard, where street parking is available, this stretch feels removed from the surrounding summertime hustle and bustle.
Skunk Harbor is quite a mission to access from the road.
Chimney beach becomes the overflow crowd when Sand Harbor fills up in any given day.
"Secret Beach" = a drainage culvert/dry creek bed between two houses. Directly adjacent Tahoe Ski Bowl way. The path has overgrown a bit past few years. It takes you down to a small patch of pebbly beachfront between two private piers from next door homeowners. Path is between two property boundaries, approx 100yds +\- south of Obexers southern boundary.
There are also some small beaches near the Emerald Bay end of the Rubicon Trail from D. L. Bliss State Park to Emerald Bay.
