Photo Guide: Lake Tahoe Instagrammable Locations

Most popular for the winder months, Lake Tahoe is a great place to visit during summer months as well!


This guide will tell you my favorite spots for taking photos on Lake Tahoe. This list with the most Instagrammable spots in Reno Tahoe that will make you want to visit asap!


1. SECRET COVE HIKING TRAIL

Secret Cove is hands down my favorite spot to take photos at so keep scrolling for the other spots we found here.


We were not planning on hiking down but because we got there by midday we had to park by the street and park out way down.


There were many cars parked there so no worries about that, and the view was worth it so it was a win-win


It is located on Tahoe's east shore and you can get there directly off Route 28 or from the Parking Lot. This is also a popular spot for kayakers and paddle-boarders.


2. SECRET COVE END OF TRIAL

If you park on the streets, hike al the way down, and you will find these huge rocks. We did not see anyone in this location so it might not be so popular but the photos turned out great


3. SECRET COVE BEACH

The water in Lake Tahoe is DREAMY to shoot at and the colors are super clear. This beach is the perfect space for great background and you can even see the bottom of the lake here. The water is clear blue and the rock formations are perfect for amazing photos.


It is located on Tahoe's east shore and you can get there directly off Route 28 or from the Parking Lot. This is also a popular spot for kayakers and paddle-boarders.


I would recommend getting there as early as possible if you plan of parking there, we got there by midday and had to park bu the road and hike all the way down, but we got a good view, keep scrolling to see the other spots.


4. ZEPHYR COVE BEACH

This is a great spot to spend the day at, there are tables for bbq, there is a store to get food at and you can even rent kayaks in there. I would recommend you to come here early since you need to park inside and there is not a ton of parking. Also there is a fee to get in and you have to pay to get in.


The Kayak was $40 hour for two people.


5. EMERALD BAY

This is such a cool spot to take photos at, and there is no hike required so that gives it another point.


It is located north of South Lake Tahoe, Emerald Bay State Park, there is a parking fee but it is hourly so totally worth it for the view and the photos.


6. DRIVE AROUND THE LAKE

There are ton of places where you can stop by on your way to the other spots so feel free to enjoy the ride and make stops, mostly during sunset where the popular places are usually packed.
