We were told over and over we had to visit Schoolhouse Beach so maybe it'd been too hyped for me. I will admit that the rocks that form the beach are pretty cool and sitting out there was pretty relaxing, but after 10 minutes or so - it's time to move along.

If you're visiting the island be sure to stop at this all stone beach! The kids got a big kick out of stacking the stones! The best and cheapest (free) attraction on the island!

The beach was very interesting and different. No sand, just covered in very smooth limestone rocks. You can see them going out far into the water too. The beach is on a nice quiet bay.

Schoolhouse Beach is enchanting. It's one of those location that will draw you in and you wouldn't want to leave, even though you are just staring that the water. :) The limestone rock beach is only one of a few in the world, which adds appeal. If you have a spider phobia, be prepared to see spider crawling in and... More

Such a unique beach. If you go to door county, you must visit even if you only stay for a few minutes.

Went to Door County a little over a year ago with family and stopped on Washington Island. This was pretty cool for "just a beach." Quiet, a little on the desolate side, rocky, but still cool to wander around. When on the island, take a few minutes to wander around.

We went to Door county at the end of October, and there were not very many tourists. In fact, many of the stores and restaurants were closing up after this weekend. We took the ferry over to Washington Island, and I enticed my boyfriend into seeing Schoolhouse Beach with promises of a great photo opportunity. It was beautiful. He took... More
