Lake Superior, Michigan

A popular destination for sunset-gazers and hikers alike, Sand Point Beach is a short ride out of the scenic town of Munising into the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Not only is the beach itself remarkable – lots of clean sand and clear cold water – but the views are unbeatable. From the surf, visitors can see Hiawatha National Forest and the imposing, century-old East Channel Lighthouse standing on the shore of Grand Island.
