We had a couple people recommend that this was a place on Washington Island not to be missed. Even though it was on the far side of the island, because we had our car, we drove to it first thing off the ferry and very glad we did. It was a stunning place - the water almost Caribbean like. The stones were amazing, soft and smooth to the touch. Apparently it is one of only five beaches like this in the world. They make it very clear that you are not to take any of the rocks with you or suffer a $500 fine. I truly hope people don't, either, as it is a very limited resource and one all should be able to enjoy. For a really magnificent view, walk a little way into the dark cedar forest and look out at the water. Picnic spots available. Bathrooms were clean.

Even though the wind was blowing at 15-20 mph, it was very peaceful at Schoolhouse Beach listening to the rocks rolling after the wave came crashing ashore.

It was a chilly day and came here to use the restroom; didn’t stay long. Very clean. Two views of the water and stone beach. I added the Washington Island Post Office ‘cause it’s so cute and a beautiful tree with lots of color on the way in and out.

This was the most beautiful beach I have ever been to. The rocks were so soft and smooth, the water was so clear and the view was amazing.
