Beautiful spot off of Lake Michigan north of the town of Frankfort. Not much to do at this location other than to sit and watch the waves crash onto the beach ... but that's what we really enjoyed the most. Sandy beach that's open to an expansive view of the lake and the lighthouse. A lovely windswept part of the Lake Michigan shoreline.

Watching a sunset from the beach is a must during the summer. My house is filled with photos of this iconic lighthouse in all types of weather and light. This trip I was able to get some photos from Lake Michigan as well during a run up the coast from Frankfort.

This location is perfect for photos, long walks, and rock collecting. Beautiful and tranquil. This is a great location for looking for the Michigan state stone.

We were staying in Beulah and decided to drive to Pointe Betsie one evening to watch the sunset. Easy to find and easy to park car and walk to the beach..two minute walk. Breathtaking sunset over Lake Michigan and great spot for photos of the scenery and the Lighthouse. Dont miss this stop!!

We heard there was the northern lights showing which we didn't see but the most amazing clear skies allowed us to cuddle under a blanker for a while and see the milky way etc! Magical! Also returned for another night where we made a campfire and marshmallows- easy to get to and plenty of space for everyone to enjoy their own camp fires!
