The light house is a wonderful bit of Americana with the beach right down the pier!!! The beach is awesome ... a bit chilly ... but still an unsalted, shark-free bit of Lake Michigan goodness with a spectacular view of the south pier lighthouse!!!!!

After a hectic work week what a way to relax. A walk to the lighthouse, getting to stroll on the beach and take in the wonderful scenery. Definitely a place to return to.

We took many pictures of the sailboats on Lake Michigan from this great vantage point. The sunset was picturesque.

Nice lighthouse walk down the pier. Good view of the channel and Lake Michigan. It's right off the beach.

The setting is beautiful with several display boards providing a history of the lighthouse. Best of all, there is no commercialization of the site.

Beautiful location close to everything in South Haven. I love the shop as well as the Pier. I purchased a wonderful hard back of the History of lighthouses of The Great Lakes. Good finds for unusual gifts!

So great to park and get out and walk the town and explore the beach and lighthouse point. East access and lots of benches and places to sit along the water. Also, lots of neat little stores and restaurants. Take a block off the main street to Old Harbor for great bar on the water and little shops and Winery... More
