10Best Things to Do at Kings Beach on Tahoe's North Shore

Kings Beach is a good central location to access the area's restaurants, coffee shops, hotels and beaches. The community of Kings Beach is named after the beach and park at the tip of the North Shore. This popular beach is great for children and has its own parking lot and playground. The main road has just received a traffic calming and art makeover and the sidewalks are very walkable. Right from the beach you can book your parasailing or kayaking tours here with North Shore Parasail, Lake Tahoe Watersports/Parasail Tahoe and Tahoe Paddle and Oar. If you want something more relaxed, head to the Old Brockway Golf Course for a few rounds of golf in paradise or go for a sail on the Wild Goose II classic wooden boat.

If you want another boat tour, the Tahoe Gal leaves from nearby Tahoe City which is just a quick drive from Kings Beach. The northern communities of Incline Village and Truckee are also a short drive from the town. If you are in town for a few days and want a family-friendly tour, check out the Lake Tahoe Adventure Company. You can take a SUP, kayak, hiking, cross country ski or snowshoe tour any time of the year. For a wintertime adrenaline rush, head to Tahoe Snowmobile Tours for some birds-eye views of the lake from on top of a mountain.
