Nice guarded beach with bathroom facilities, playground for kids and a snack bar. Fun and easy for the family. Later in the day the sunsets are phenomenal !

FANTASTIC beach front. Lots of frontage on Lake Michigan. Beach is on adjacent to the New Buffalo harbor mouth. Lots of boats to watch coming and going. Also, some like to climb on the rocks to go out to the end of the Pier. The walk on the rocks can be challenging. The beach itself has soft sand. There is... More

It was BEAUTIFUL! But the beach is rocky. The sand dunes were fun. But there are other beaches that have a more "beach" feel near by.

This beach is in a great location offering a very long and wide stretch of sand. Normally, the beach is cleaner than it was last weekend, but we will give it another chance given the temps and large crowds.

Conveniently located beach, right by downtown New Buffalo. This is a beautiful beach with gorgeous sunsets. There is a playground for the kids, snack stand, and decent public restrooms. The boardwalk is long and makes the trek to the water much easier. On-site parking is very convenient, close, and reasonably priced. Beautiful public beach - one of our very favorites!

What a cute little town New Buffalo is! The beach is clean. Restrooms, concessions and shower are available which is great. We rode bikes and there are stands you can lock it up to. We caught a beautiful sunset one night and if you sit on the rocks along the side when you first enter beach area, you can watch... More

The beach is not the best in the area. It is a long walk from the parking area, which they charge for parking. The better beaches are in Michigan City and Warren Dunes. St. Joe is very nice also.
