The sandy cove and granite boulders of Speedboat Beach make this small beach one of the most scenic along Tahoe’s north shore. Found near the end of Brockway Point just west of the state line, Speedboat is a popular neighborhood beach that fills up quickly during the warm summer months. The beach is well suited for families and those exploring the Kings Beach shoreline with stand-up paddleboards and kayaks.

Adding to the scenery of the place, large granite boulders dot the stretch of sand and extend southwards a few hundred yards out into Lake Tahoe off the west end. The boulders off the point provide perfect sunning and swimming platforms, and with extremely clear water, they are beautiful to snorkel around.

Parking near the beach is extremely limited; try parking closer to Kings Beach and walk, bike, or take public transit in. Please be respectful of the neighborhood and pick up any trash you see, as this will help keep Speedboat Beach accessible to all.

There is no signage along Highway 28 pointing out Speedboat Beach. See the driving directions.
