Baldwin Beach lies on the southern shores of Lake Tahoe amid one of the lake’s most popular areas with visitors because of its range of attractions. Its broad golden sands stretch for around half a mile and offer up vistas of the Sierra Nevada mountains alongside the opportunity to hire kayaks to explore the region from the water.
Located on national forest land, only gas grills are permitted for barbeques to reduce the chance of fires. Visitors should also look out for Tahoe yellow cress, an endangered plant whose native habitat is the beach. You shouldn’t walk through fenced off areas.
During the summer months beachgoers are advised to arrive early in order to find places to park, which cost roughly $10 per vehicle. Public restrooms are located nearby. The only other significant facilities are a handful of picnic benches. It’s best to bring any refreshments you might want during the day with you.
