“Great beach to hang out and relax”

This is a clean and nice public beach. I like that they have lifegaurds. The one thing is there is a fee to park unless you walk a distance and park downtown. There are lots of things to do near by and can be enjoyed by he whole family

Great beach in a great little town. Beautiful, mostly clean, nice little playground for smaller kids. Only 1/2 mile from downtown new buffalo.

Thousands of Chicagoans and southern Indiana folk flock here during the summer months. They do a great job keeping the beach combed. Warning! Don't let your children climb the huge rocks. I watched a teen fall and crack her skull on one...had to be helo-vac'd out. Otherwise, a great place to get some sun and work on your tan.

One of my favorite Lake Michigan beaches. Beautiful sand & sun. Easy access from parking. Easy to locate. Only 5-10 min walk to town. Always maintained very well. Clean restrooms, refreshments available. Summer weekends typically lifeguards on duty.

This beach offers a small park, a rocky pier, nice sandy beach, and some boardwalks through gorgeous grassy dunes. There is a restroom and refreshment stand available. The parking is quite close. There is a fee during the daytime beach season, though sunsets are always free. :)
