  • After walking in to see Munising Falls we continued down the road and caught the sunset at Sand Point. Walked along the beach towards the point itself. Very nice spot and great location for a sunset.  more »
  • I am so happy we stopped at this beach! It is an amazing place to watch the sunset! We enjoyed seeing the pink sand and all of the driftwood is pretty cool too!  more »
  • Plenty of pink sand to see, driftwood, and a great view across the lake. nothing really special about the beach except for the pink color. Worth the trip just to see that  more »

  • Did you know that this sand is special? This is singing sand. Each grain of sand is from all of the sandstone cliffs. Each grain is perfectly spherical. If you gently stroke this and it will sing and hum under your hand it's really cool. This beach would need more parking. The water is always very cold probably just enough to get up to your knees or a brief dunk and jump back out.
  • There's a telescope 🔭 thing that you can use. Nice beautiful beach.
  • This is a great beach to walk or lay out if nice enough, very large and not crowded.
  • Great beach. Clean sand, lots of driftwood, beautiful views of Grand Island and the East Channel Lighthouse. The Pictured Rocks park ranger headquarters is here and a small maritime exhibit about the life saving station that was there. There are some nicely maintained bathrooms (but they are just pit toilets). The water is fairly shallow for quite a ways out and the water in the bay is a bit warmer.
  • I'm hesitant to write a review because the beach was blessedly uncrowded, but we had a fantastic time at the gorgeous place! We spent an afternoon with the dogs (it's one of the few places in Pictured Rocks you can bring the pooches) and it could not have been better. It's a small, perfectly clean beach with a few picnic tables, lovely views, and pebble-free swimming. Our favorite part of the trip!
