Chimney Beach is located approx. 2 miles south of Sand Harbor State Park.  A parking lot is located on the east side of Hwy 29, across the street from the trailhead down to Chimney Beach.  The beach is named after the stone chimney that still remains on the lakeshore, a remnant of the caretaker's cabin that once stood there.  Its a small sandy lakeshore area that is very popular and provides scenic views of Lake Tahoe.
