The beach at Whitefish Dunes extends for miles. The sand is soft, and the water is warmer than you would expect in Lake Michigan. Even on a chill day, the beach is perfect for a long walk or sun-bathing.

Nice long beach but its worth it to follow the lakeshore trail up to Cave Point where there are lots of rocks to look out on and pretty views everywhere.

The water in Lake Michigan is always cool, and in spring through June, its pretty cold actually. People go in, but not for very long. suggestion: there is a small inland lake nearby, called Clark Lake, only minutes from... More
