Two miles south of Tahoe City, William Kent Beach is a free, public, pebbly beach sandwiched between the water of Lake Tahoe and Highway 89. This beach strand is connected to the William Kent Campground. An excellent beach for swimming and lounging, it is also good for launching kayaks and paddleboards. The beach also parallels the bike path, making it a nice place to do a one-two of biking into swimming with the car only a few steps away. There are grills, picnic tables and public bathrooms for visitor use.
