Always Ask a Local for Information

It is a very sandy beach with warm water because of the shallowness. North Lake Tahoe is shallower than many other parts and because of this, the water is warmer. One can stay in and enjoy it longer.

Moon Beach is a local secret. It is not marked on a map. It is not marked as a public beach along the road. In fact, you would never find it nor even know this wonderful, dog-friendly beach was there. What makes it better than most is the fact that it IS all sand including a good hundred yards off shore. No water shoes needed. No rocks to walk on when you are in the water. The water, even 100 yds. off shore, is not more than waist high. At 200-300 yards, the depth is not more than 20 ft. deep. The shallowness makes it perfect for throwing the frisbee while you are in the water (running in water is another issues).

The beach is directly opposite 7495 North Lake Blvd in Tahoe Vista. Its entrance is next to a fenced in communications relay (address is 7489). The only drawback is that there are no restrooms and the sand is hot, Using the entrance is a narrow sandy path that leads up a small hill adjacent to dunes. Once to the top, the beach vista opens up into its large size. For shade, sit under the towering pine trees on the large sand dune.

If you are in North Lake Tahoe, check it out.
