Kings Beach sits on the stumpy promontory that drops down from the northern shores of Lake Tahoe. On the California side of the state line, it lies on Agate Bay and extends for around a quarter-mile. The neat gridiron of streets stretching inland means beachgoers are never far from parking, places to eat and drink, or somewhere to try their hand at minigolf.
Covered by snowfall in the winter months, Kings Beach is very much a summer destination for anyone who wants to feel the ultraviolet on their skin. The waters of the lake at this point are crystal clear, and popular with swimmers as well as stand-up paddleboarders and kayakers – both can be rented from the beach.
Laid-back by nature, Kings Beach is a place to unroll a towel rather than seek out a sun lounger.
