We've spent the last 2 summers taking a trip to Lake Michigan and we discovered North Beach our first. We loved it so much we plan to visit every summer! We normally take vacations to Florida or other beach destinations. However, we decided to try Michigan since its a quicker trip. North Beach rivals any beach I've been too, whether a lake, ocean, or river one. There is tons of space even on the busy summer weekends. While we were there, there were good waves making for a fun time in the water. The kids could play in the sand or we could walk to the lighthouse. My older teens were also able to keep busy and walked into South Haven to browse the shops. Parking can be a pain in the butt so shoot for a weekday if you can. Also, for prime spots on the beach, head out around 10am. People seem to come in waves though and there were the early crowd and then the afternoon crowd. North Beach is also fantastic for sunset pics. We've done quite a bit of traveling around that area of Michigan and we always go to North Beach.

A BEAUTIFUL "sugar sand" beach with plenty of space to "social distance"! It's a long beach with about 1/2 mile walk from end to end. The parking lot is at most 200 feet from the lake shore. However, the parking lot is not large and parking can be hard to find at prime times. (Parking is $10 per vehicle, paid at machines by the lot. You need to search for them... they are easy to overlook). Overall, this is a beautiful beach with beautiful white soft sand and great access to a beautiful great lake!

North Beach is in a nice area in downtown South Haven. Basically where we spent most of the time at. It was a lot of fun and relaxing. It's very open, clean, and beautiful view of Lake Michigan. I prefer the North Beach over South Beach. Recommended!

We had perfect beach weather on the day we went. Lots of sun, a cooling breeze, and slow bouncy waves. We arrived reasonably early- about 10:30- and staked out a really good social distant but water proximate spot with our beach tent. We hung out for about three hours, and while it got definitely more crowded while were there, our space was never infringed on and we were able to maintain a safe distance while playing in the water etc.

The beach was very nice. We took a twilight walk, dipping or feet in the waves. No trash laying around. Lots of sand. Beautiful place.
