Secret Cove is a secluded nudist beach that is off the same trail system that accesses Chimney Beach. On the east shore of Lake Tahoe on Highway 89, 2.6 miles from Sand Harbor, the trailhead to Secret Cove is found to the right of the free public parking. The trail is steep at first and then mellows out to a gentle 3/4-mile of single track. To access Secret Cove, follow the trail down, and when the trail Ys take a left (right will take you to Chimney Beach). The first real cove that you will come to is Secret Cove. It's a beautiful strand of beach often filled with people who enjoy swimming without a bathing suit. The trail continues accessing other beaches such as Boaters Beach, Creek Beach and Whale Beach.
