Ever since the glaciers carved out Lake Michigan, the winds, sun, rain and ice continually reshape our shoreline. While the beach frontages change each year, there are acres of sand and dunes to enjoy in Southwest Michigan. On this site, discover what each beach is like and find your singing-sand destination.




In Southwest Michigan, you are never far from Lake Michigan’s miles of soft-sandy beaches. This stretch of paradise begins the moment you cross the Indiana/Michigan border. From Bridgman to St. Joseph/Benton Harbor and north on M-63, you will find some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. This is the change of scenery … the change of pace … that you need now and all year round.

Yes, Lake Michigan’s waters are higher and our beaches are narrower. But there is still plenty of space for you. There are towering dunes to climb. Mesmerizing waves to watch. Some days they gently ripple and curl. Others they turn mirror-still. And sometimes they ferociously roar and crash to shore.

But it’s our sand that’s magical. It sings beneath each footstep. Listen. It’s like holding a seashell to your ear only better.

Spend time on our beaches this year. Stay until the setting sun paints the horizon and the glimmering stars pierce the night sky. It is a sacred moment so spellbinding, the silence is broken only by the songs of the waves and the sand.
