We never made it out to the sea caves because the weather looked iffy. Early June this area was dead and beautiful..no people or mosquitoes yet! I imagine the caves are gorgeous on very calm, hot weather days. We went on an 80 degree day...More

Not much beach due to high lake level. The caves are visible to the east on a clear day. There is a trail to the caves. Kayaks can be launched from Meyers Beach to paddle to the caves.

You cannot make a visit to the Apostle Islands without going to the Meyers Beach sea caves. We did a half day tour through Trek and Trail to view the caves and it was awesome but you could also hike the trail above the caves!

The hiking trail at Meyers Beach is woodsy with a nice view of the Apostle Islands in Lake Superior as your prize at the end. You are above the caves, so not the best view of them, but the trail itself is fun with 2...More

We hiked most of the trail and it was magnificent. It is a moderate skill trail. Good shoes recommended. The day was predicted at 65 and cloudy. It was 80 and sunny, so the cave views were breathtaking, lake calm and clear. We walked the...More

If you have time in your day to take in the caves, book a kayaking trip with Lost Creek Adventures. They made our tour one to remember!

If kayaking isn't your thing. There is a trail from Meyers Beach in which you can see the caves from the cliffs above. I definitely recommend it! The trail to the caves is about 2 miles and I would say its novice to intermediate trail....More

We used Lost Creek Adventures for a 1/2 day kayak trip into the sea caves at Meyers Beach. We were not disappointed. It was a great way to see them up close and our tour guides, Mark and Wyatt were excellent!

I know you can kayak on your own but don’t know how far I would go without a guide or group. It all depends on you skills and type of kayak. The lake can turn nasty fast and their is no shore to pull off on the further up... More

Yes. The first third of the way to the sea caves (or rather the one gorge you can see from up above) is a board walk. The rest of the way is a clear path. There are some short inclines, but nothing difficult if you are used... More

Yes, easily if you are used to carrying them in the backpack. The terrain is not particularly difficult - we did a lot more demanding hiked in the Alps. The question is whether the 'outlook' is worth the hike at all.
