Zephyr Cove Beach

Vacation Travel Guide
Zephyr Cove Beach which includes a sandy beach as well as a large group of people

Enjoy this peaceful lake-front destination where charming cabins are perched on a long, sandy beach.

Zephyr Cove is the ideal place for a peaceful summer getaway. Its long beach is a pleasant place for sunbathing, and there are plenty of activities on the lake and in the nearby mountains to keep you entertained for a weekend.

This lakeshore resort was built in the early 1900s. The historical cabins retain their original charm, while modern features provide top-notch comfort. The quaint waterfront cabins range in size from small studios to chalets for groups. There’s also an RV park and campground offering sweeping views and good amenities.

Summer activities are mostly at the water’s edge at public Zephyr Cove Beach. Play volleyball on the professional courts or swoop above the action while parasailing. Swim in the clear, cool water of Lake Tahoe, sunbathe on the beach, or pull up a beach chair under an umbrella and read a book. You can even order a cocktail from the Sunset Bar and Grille to unwind in style on the beach.

Boat cruises operate daily from Zephyr Cove to Emerald Bay, offering a relaxed way to take in the scenic shores. Those who love the outdoors can also explore the countless hiking trails in the Lake Tahoe Basin.

From Zephyr Cove you can easily reach several nearby ski slopes by car. Those wanting to zoom around on speedy snowmobiles can join a guided tour. Experienced and inexperienced riders alike will enjoy the scenic journey around Lake Tahoe, and you’ll be treated to a steaming hot chocolate along the way.

Zephyr Cove Resort and Beach sits on National Forest Land in South Tahoe on the Nevada side of the lake. The Reno–Tahoe airport is a 40-mile (65-kilometer) drive away, and there are public transport options to the airport and other Lake Tahoe destinations.
