News > Beach Access a Giant Perk for Incline Village Residents

Lake Tahoe is a natural draw to visitors and residents alike, but it's not always easy to find a spot at a beach to enjoy it.  A large swath of the lake has no beach (just rocks), is inaccessible or is private. King's Beach is a parking nightmare, and the Sand Harbor parking lot fills up early in the day in the summer.

But if you are an Incline Village resident, beach access is at your fingertips at one of 3 beaches that are only open to residents and their guests.  No other community on Lake Tahoe has this level of beach access and beach amenities.  Though parking can be difficult on a busy weekend,  you can usually find a spot within a short walk.  On really busy days you can take the shuttle.  Here's the lowdown on Incline Village beaches:

Incline Beach

The Incline Beach is located next to the Hyatt Lake Tahoe resort and is the most central.  There's plenty of space here for a picnic in the park areas as well as a very wide beach.  Other features at Incline Beach include:

  • Children's playground
  • Picnic areas and grills
  • Lounge chairs
  • Kayak and SUP launching area
  • Roped off swimming area
  • Bar and cafe, open in the summer months
  • Kayak and SUP rentals during summer months
  • Dogs are allowed during certain fall weeks

Ski Beach

Located right next to Incline Beach and connected by a walking bridge, Ski Beach is primarily used for the boat launch.  But there are other great features of Ski beach as well:

  • Volleyball court
  • Picnic areas
  • Bocce ball court
  • Storage area for Kayaks and Canoes

Burnt Cedar Beach


The main feature at Burnt Cedar is the heated community pool.  Whether it's some laps or just playtime, the Burnt Cedar pool is quite popular.

The semi-circular beach is gorgeous too, with a contained swimming area for those willing to brave the cool Tahoe waters. 

Other features at Burnt Cedar:

  • Large group picnic area
  • Children's playground
  • Lounge chairs
  • Kayak and SUP launching area
  • A grass-filled jetty - great for enjoying the view
