Nice beach, clean. Although the sand isn't like sand its like crushed rock. Not soft. I would choose another beach close to this one if possible. Cute town of New buffalo.

The beach was so busy but there were many places to still hang out and enjoy the sun and waves. Fun day and I can't wait to get back here.

Great sand in the summer and frozen waves in the winter. Nice to see nature at any time of year. Even in the winter its fun to walk on the beach.

Our weekend at this beach are so nice that we do it every year while our girls are still younger. There is parking at the beach so we load up lunch and pack the car with all of our beach items. We "surf" the waves and build sand castles on this beautiful beach. Be careful.. the weather is very unpredictable!... More
