This tiny stretch of beach is 300 yards of dreamy oceanfront property where you can spend the day sunbathing or playing in the water.

The bright blue waves will transport you from the Silver State to a Caribbean paradise.

According to Tahoe Public Beaches, you can find parking at the Secret Harbor Parking Lot. Entry to Sand Harbor State Park costs $10.

This stunning destination can be reached by driving 1.5 miles to the south of Sand Harbor.

Once you park, a small access road leads you to the vault toilets and then to the trail that leads to the cove.

The website notes it is half a mile walk from the vault to the beach.

Between the aqua waves and the warm sand, you will be glad you saved your money and hit this spot instead of hopping on a flight to the Bahamas.

You can pack a lunch or wade through the crystal clear waters while working on that tan that will see you through to winter.

Just make sure to leave no trace once you pack up for the day.

If you want to explore more of the lake, there are paddleboard and kayak rentals throughout the area so you can take in all of the awesomeness.

There is still time for that end of summer trip, so what are you waiting for?
