Beautiful beach not more than 10 minutes from downtown. It can get crowded so plan to get there early! Also, be prepared for high winds - bring your kite, not your beach ball.

Great beach. Clean beautiful sand and water! A little hard to find but worth it. $9 fee is well worth it. Also has a snack shop and store. The kids will love jumping of the pier!

Drove our 30' Motor Home & stayed at the beach campground. Nice weather & facilities. Great bike trails. Always a great time there.

We visited to see the sunset and it was incredible. Probably the prettiest sunset we have ever seen. The beach is very large, and even though there were tons of people, it didn't feel crowded. We did have to pay to park, but since we got there later in the day the pass was good for the next day as... More

Our favorite beach of the western MI beaches! Its a very large beach. Its's beautiful and clean. Nice swimming area. There is also very nice boardwalk down to the water... so you don't have to drudge thru the loose sand (great for handicaped people, small children, unfit people, etc). Get there early because sometimes by noon the beach parking is... More

Large beach area. Lacking in shade but you can always bring your umbrella. Not as nice as St Joseph beach which is 1 hour south of there but still wroth the trip.

We went there on a hot Saturday in July, driving out to Holland from Ann Arbor. I was very impressed -- very wide sandy beach, clean, and the water was a great temperature and good waves for the kids to jump in. Lots of people, lots of kids in the water, but still it didn't feel too crowded at all.... More

Lovely white sands & clean clear water. What more can you ask for? The sunset on Lake Michigan is some of the prettiest I have seen. They have clean facilities and a cool pier to walk on. Sitting on the beach watching the sailboats in the sunset was an amazing way to end our couples weekend!

Great beach, nice walkways up to the light house or to fish. Plenty of room to spread out. Long and deep beach.
