I love this beach! It's easy to get to, beautiful, lots of room so even if it's busy you still have plenty of space. The facilities are nice. It has everything you need for a great day at the beach.

Depends if you actually want to touch the lighthouse. If you visit Holland State Park, you can see the lighthouse from across the channel that leads from Lake Macatawa to Lake Michigan. Very short walk from the parking lot... More

There are boat rentals on Lake Macatawa close by to the State Park. Kayaks, SUP boards, sea-doos, and motor boats are all for rent close by.
