really nice beach, some super views especially at sunset. You really need to be ready to climb some stairs, however!

Hello all, This is a secluded and quiet beach. We stayed for 2 hours having a romatic picnic and walk along the shore. There were on a couple other couples. Nothing fancy, simply secluded and quiet.

This beach was out of the way and felt secluded. The negative is the dune climb. It's a killer if you have beach gear to lug but we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Use the bathroom before heading here. There are no facilities beachside. There is a port a potty in the parking lot.

Beautiful beach, just south of Holland. Must be able to climb many steps to cross over a huge sand dune. Then climb down to a secluded beach area. Crossing over the dune is half the fun. Gorgeous view once you get to the top. If you like to work out this is an awesome place to come.

This little gem is a beautiful beach! It's a little off the beaten path and hard to find, but once you do, it is beautiful. To access the beach, you will have to walk up and down a ton of stairs over the dune. When you get to the top, before you start your descent, you are rewarded with a... More

There is not much parking at this Township Park. And there is a hefty fine if you park where you are not supposed to. However, if you get a spot and take the hike up and over the dune on the wood stairs, you will be rewarded with a great view and a lovely day at the beach.

the most beautiful pristine and peadeful beach we have ever been to. one has to keep in mind that there are stairs or dunes to climb before one gets to the beach - but it is very much worth it!

Let's start out with some positive aspects: -Nice, clean sand (no trash, glass, cigarette butts or anything) -Seems family friendly -Pretty views -The stairs really aren't so bad...don't get me wrong, there are a lot of them, but I brought my tennis shoes ready for the hike of a lifetime and they're simply not that bad. Stairs are very shallow... More

Loved the out-of-the way beach on Lake Michigan, but you need to be in good shape to get there! Nearly 350 steps to go up and down!
