Explore the East and North Shores of Tahoe

Your Tahoe Itinerary idea: Explore the East and North shore

Start your morning with coffee at Drink Coffee and Do Stuff. This is a specialty coffee company ‘built with the belief that extraordinary coffee leads to an extraordinary life.” We agree and highly recommend this spot.

Now that you are fueled up on caffeine, it's time for brunch! Make reservations ahead of time and head to Brunch at Sage Leaf Tahoe. They focus on unique, creative, and seasonal offerings and somehow manage to be healthy and comforting at the same time.

After brunching, spend the Day working off those calories by exploring some of the most beautiful beaches in Tahoe:

Sand Harbor is a beautiful, small state park with a huge beach and gorgeous mesmerizing water. It costs $10 to enter, but it’s totally worth it. While at Sand Harbor you can lay on the beach, walk around, and soak up the views of the incredibly clear water and mountains or if you are up for it, you can also kayak to Bonsai Rock from here!

Chimney Beach is a little less busy. Keep in mind that It does require a quick 0.5 mile walk from the parking area to the beach.While you’re by Chimney Beach, make sure to check out Secret Cove. You can park in the same area as Chimney Beach and after parking, take a well marked trail south and look for signs that will tell you when to turn to go to the water. The walk is about 10 minutes and it is one of our favorite coves. So stunning!

Watch the sunset along the new East Shore Trail! This trail was a big feat for the East Shore, as it now gives people access to beaches and areas of the shore that were inaccessible before. This is a lovely trail as you can see all the views from Incline Village to Sand Harbor, which is about 1.5 miles one way.

Lastly, head into Incline Village for dinner! Hands down, my favorite restaurant in all of Lake Tahoe is Bite American Tapas. This restaurant has amazing cocktails and small plates that are mouth watering. I’ve never had a bad meal here and I’ve had many many many meals here. The quality is top notch and consistent. Well worth the drive to Incline!
