this beach is not completely dog friendly. look for signs that permit dogs. east of Tallac point is dog friendly. the beach was clean and most dogs were off leash but everyone was very friendly.
- DeirdreJul. 21, 2021Beautiful Area
We love Tahoe, this was our first time bringing our dog. This was the nicest dog beach we visited and were able to put her in a day camp to visit even nicer beaches during our trip. Everything I did not like about this beach is why dogs are not allowed on all beaches. The sand had a poo/pee smell in some areas and almost all dogs are off leash - not all well behaved. Overall we would return here when we are in Tahoe again. For being a dog beach it was good.
- SandraJun. 24, 2021Great for Dogs
This is one of the few beaches at Lake Tahoe you can bring your dog to. It is beautiful and easy to get into the water. If you come during the summer, arrive early because the parking lot fills up quickly. I would have given it 5 bones, but no one seems to obey the leash requirement here, so there are tons of dogs running around off-leash.
- HeatherApr. 3, 2021Great beach!
This fairly narrow but beautiful lake side beach is gorgeous! The day we visited, the parking lot was closed so we found parking on the road and walked the half mile (or so) in but I am glad because otherwise it would have been too crowded and no one seemed to obey the leash laws here, this is the main reason I cannot give 5 bones.
- YvonneJul. 14, 2020Lovely beach
Perfect mix of water kids dog and sand.
- JessieOct. 23, 2018Awesome Spot!
Loved finding this spot! As a previous reviewer said, the best access is by turning on Heritage and then making an immediate left to the parking area that has direct access to a short and scenic trail to the beach. You can go to the beach itself, or continue walking a trail the opposite direction along side the lake.
I'm sure it's busy on-season, but when we went (on a weekday in mid October at noon) there was plenty of parking, only a handful of people, and just a few dogs. Awesome experience and my dog was stoked to run alongside the beach and in the gorgeous clear water of Tahoe; the backdrop of the mountains made for some awesome pictures too!
- JamieAug. 9, 2018Pros and cons
Kiva beach is best accessed by turning on to Heritage and then making an immediate left. Pros: lots of space, cool peninsula. Cons: bit of a walk from the nearest parking lot, no restrooms, no shade, up against a marsh with stagnant water, lake water isn't as inviting as it is at other beaches, lots of branches and plants in the water.
- DominicMore than a year agoAwesome Beach
Kiva beach is an awesome place to bring the dog. Highly recommend arriving early, as the parking closest to the beach front is small. We arrived at 8am, and there were only a few others for close to 2hrs, it began getting packed around 11:30am, so we decided to leave and go have lunch. Only reason I did not give a 5 none review, is because I wish everyone would respect the rules and keep their dogs on leash, even if it’s 30ft long. By 11:30 many dogs that were not very well socialized began shaking up and off leash. Again if you arrive early, you will have no issues.
- StaceyMore than a year agonice beach for the pups
The only thing keeping this from a 5 is there were a lot of bees at this beach.
