It's a rough beach to walk. The 'pebbles' slip and slide, and can cause you to fall down. The water, however, is crystal clear and beautiful. I chose not to go in the water, because I was afraid once my shoes got wet, I would slide even more. Interesting story on how the pebbles were formed, though. Worth seeing if... More

Remember that you are on the Great Lakes, the water was freezing. The stones, while very cool, are hard to walk on. I would suggest water shoes or sandals to walk comfortably.

A lovely pebbled beach with cold cold water. DO NOT take any of the stones home with you. Leave them for others to enjoy.

Walked on the beach. Very unique stones make up the entire beach. Lovely and peaceful. In October not many people are around on weekdays so this was most enjoyable/

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.
