This was our first visit to a non-ocean Beach. There are no waves, no shells and it was quite empty because the season has not begun.

I went here to watch the sunset on a recommendation. Wow! It was spectacular. A beautiful beach. I’d like to return in the summertime.

My husband and I walked the beach and sand dunes! It was immaculate! A tremendously relaxing and sun-filled beach with clean sand and water. The dunes were also spectacular.

We visited on a blustery, early spring day. It’s a beautiful area to stroll with lovely water and sand dune sights. It was fun to be there in the off season. Very peaceful.

Even though it was a very breezy day, the water was great! We had a lot of fun in the waves. It was a very clean beach.

That sums it up folks. You can be queer or hetero, non binary, and have a wonderful time. Family and single friendly.

Beautiful sandy beach, don't feel crowded if you stay closer to the entrance. Water is clear blue, my favorite beach on lake michigan.

I didn’t see anyone doing this and don’t know. I don’t recall any signs either. You should call the city of Saugatuck or Douglas, they would know. I wish I could be of more help.

Yes actually. There is a wooden walkway at the North End of the beach that goes all the way to the Shoreline.
