Beautiful and unusual beach. With soft round pebbles instead of sand. Water was cold when we visited, but it didn't stop my 14 yr old daughter from swimming. The water is calm all the time so it's great for small children as well. Wonderful beach for rock skipping or just throwing rocks into the water like about 97% of us... More

Schoolhouse Beach is a beautiful, peaceful place to skip rocks, build rock towers, or just sit and enjoy the view.

Peace and quiet, no sand beach, just round rocks left over from the glaciers. Crystal clear water, a few picnic tables... a must see while on the island. We have made this trip maybe 30 times in the past 47 years of marriage.

Great place to stop and skip rocks on the water, as the rocks are very smooth. The water is amazingly clear. Worth a quick stop for a picnic on the beach.

We were here before prime season, so it was peaceful. The kids like throwing rocks and writing their names with the rocks. It really is unique. Water is so clear and the cove cuts down on the winds. The public beach is maybe a 100 yards. I recommend this because it is so unique. It was fun finding all the... More

Amazing beauty! Crystal clear water, you can literally count the stones on the bottom! The Cyprus trees provide cool shadow and complete the beauty!

Great beach but no dogs allowed. We went before the real tourist season began so there was no one there which was nice. But like most beaches in the area no dogs are allowed. :(

We stopped here and the kids threw rocks and swam. It was a good time and cool to see the rocks. Not much more to say, it's a beach with cool rocks instead of sand. Very nice though.

I was excited to see this beach because it is one of five places in the world where the conditions make round rocks. I was absolutely amazed that all the rocks were round. The water is crystal clear, and if I wasn't on Washington Island in late October, I would swear I was in the tropics due to the clear... More
