Good Harbor Beach

A magnificent beach along a stretch of Good Harbor Bay. This beach offers clear views out to the islands and has a long sandy beach. Just a few seconds walk south is a stream running from the woods into Lake Michigan. The stream is great for kids to play in, fun to follow into the woods, and nice to just stand in the warmer waters of the stream after a cold dip in Lake Michigan.

Cool things to do: Bring a soccer ball, football, or frisbee to have a rowdy game on the beach, on a windy day bring boogieboards, surfboards, or skimboards and play in the waves, and after all the hard play make sure to stick around to watch the sunset – there is nothing better than watching a sunset over Lake Michigan (don’t blink – if you look hard enough you might be able to see the Green Flash when the sun sets).

    Isn’t the Green Flash a Key West thing .

    In the 80’s my family spent many days on the Good Harbor beach . Usually at the small creek ( cold water and mosquitos ). The kids would spend all day damming the creek and then let it flood over , rinse , repeat. Did fireworks there on the 4th for many years . Explored the remains of Good Harbor bldgs foundations .
    Alas , now , a National Park . Not the same
