This is a sunset paradise! There is plenty of parking and accommodations. You can see the Big Red lighthouse from the beach.

Crazy windy on the day I was there but Holland State Park Beach is a clean and picturesque beach with easy access. The Big Red Lighthouse is nearby for some great photo ops.

The day we were there the wind had to be 40 knots, busting to 55, but it was still beautiful! It would be great place for a picnic, volleyball game, or playing in surf once it is a little warmer!

First time in Michigan and I think today was one of the warmest for the locals because the beach was busy. Very clean and accessible. The lake is huge!!! Back home they are ponds compared to this. Lighthouse was cool.

If the weather is good they usually max out capacity so you will need to park down the road. The later you arrive, the further you end up. Best to arrive before 10:00 am to get in.
