Absolutely beautiful views, great beaches, we had a great day here. We took our 3 year olds and the hike down was no problem at all. After a long day of fun in the sun, swimming, etc, the hike UP was not as great. If you are taking a bunch of stuff down there, you want to make sure you're prepared to lug it back up with you. All in all, great beach for families, clean, free, and extremely beautiful.

This was a quick 10 minute walk down the trail to the beach. Very easy and kid friendly. The hike back up is not difficult at all and could be managed by all ages.

Spectacular views of Lake Tahoe! Great path, easy to follow. Up and down terrain that was manageable!

This is a great family friendly hike. A lot of places to stop for swimming or sunbathing. Absolutely gorgeous views and lots of picture opportunities. The only downside is that it's a pretty heavily trafficked trail, so you don't get as much alone time.

Beautiful, short hike to breathtaking, remote spots on the lake. Lots of Rocky photo ops along the way or you can go all the way to the sandy part if Chimney Beach. Dog friendly as well and not much of the lake is these days.
