Surprisingly, New Buffalo(NB) has not been inundated with large summer crowds. It is a small beachfront community with plenty of marina space and beautiful beaches. Access to the marina from the lake is short and easy to navigate. The beach is a short walkable distance to the ice cream shops and decent restuarants. For those of us that like the... More

Pretty beach with calm clean waters and white sand. It is located nearby hotels and rental homes, as well as eateries. Cute place to visit with family and friends. It gets busy with the summer months, so be aware that it may get crowded there, especially on weekends.

Just minutes away from Four Winds Casino - quick drive. Beach is clean, sand dunes good for walking and nice shopping a short distance away.

They always have parking available and it's only $10. Nice boardwalk to get you and your stuff onto he beach. Lifeguards there. Police patrol so there's lots of fun had but it doesn't get out of control. There are playgrounds and swings for kids. Food from the little stand is good. Cheeseburgers and hot dog type stuff. There's a jetty... More

I love NB Beach. It is large and it has stairs on the dune to get a better view. You can also walk out on the break water, if you are not scared to walk n rocks. It costs money to get in the beach so make the most of it.

This is a cute little beach. Not as nice as some others but nice for the area. The actual sand near the water is rough on the feet because there are a lot of rocks. There's a boardwalk about halfway through the sand. The bathroom facilities are older but clean. A lot of teenagers working but doing a nice job... More

Arrived just before sunset. Many families, couples, friends. Beach and water were clean. Sat on dune overlooking beach to watch the amazing sunset. Food, playground, and clean restrooms. Beautiful find in this small tourist town.

Very neat place, as public beaches go I rate this one high because pretty clean and roomy. Nice sunset view, good sand. It has an old time feel.

We arrived just in time for the sun to set, quite beautiful. A small playground for the kids, a cute lighthouse for décor. Great place to sit on the wall or benches just to enjoy the lake., it was too late in the evening and too early in the season for a swim.

In years past I worked for a summer camp that brought kids here. It has been some time, but the cost was $5 a car load. There is a consession stand for treats. Bathrooms with a shower. Lifeguard. Warning flags used. Great find of a beach that is never too busy
