Grand Haven is known for it's singing sands beaches, but it's also a great place to watch the waves on a blustery day. Mother nature blows through Grand Haven fairly often, so you can bet there is a good chance you'll view some spectacular waves, especially in the fall. So, if you are in the area, take a drive out...

Actually there are two lighthouses on the Grand Haven pier. One lighthouse at the end and the other half way out. The lighthouses are still functional and their exteriors were just redone last year.

I have gotten some beautiful photos of the sunset on this pier in the summer. It is a gorgeous view no matter what time of year. It is beautiful in the winter, as well. In the summer, walking by the coast and down the pier is just a must do when in Grand Haven. It is just truly a beautiful... More

This is our fourth time to visit the pier and lighthouse and we very much enjoy it. We have enjoyed it in all kinds of weather and it is very well kept and just a treat visually.

Visited on a chilly Sunday morning with clear skies. The view from the end of the pier was great. You can see for miles out into Lake Michigan. This is a must when your in town. A great stop and free.

Beautiful lighthouse! Walk along the jetty and get right up next to the lighthouse and take in some breathtaking views. Doesn't cost anything to head out there. We visited in Oct 2014 and the weather was great. mid/high 50's with a slight wind.

Loved the view. Absolutely breathtaking. It really points out how amazing this world is. The water was so high it was coming up over the end of pier. So cool

Any lover of lighthouses will be doubly pleased when going to Lighthouse Connection Park - you can walk out on the jetty, view the sunset and see both lighthouses.
