What could be better than walking down to the lighthouse at dusk to watch the sunset. The show does not fail to exceed expectations, and at the end, the whole crowd erupts into applause!

Pleasant walk out on the pier to the lighthouse, quiet time for the soul to reflect. A very relaxing place to spend a few hours.

Neat old lighthouse (now automated) on the South pier at the mouth of the Black River channel. A popular spot to see the sunset and to watch the Friends Good Will tall ship come and go.

What a beautiful place to just walk out too, we had a nice stroll to the lighthouse. The views of the beach are awesome, probably one of the best in Michigan... Top 5 at least!

This hundred year old lighthouse is at the end of the South Beach pier. It is a must destination for visitors to South Haven. Thousands of "couple" pictures are taken here.

It would have been more interesting if a person could walk inside but it is a perfect spot to walk out to the end of the pier and watch a storm roll in. Makes a good backdrop for photos as well

Soft sand, great sunset and a fun place to people watch is what surrounds this nice lighthouse! We love the Lake Michigan shoreline because of the lighthouses, and this one is easy access!
