Beaches - accessibility

My mom and I are here on vacation in Holland, MI. We'd like to go to the beach. My mom has trouble walking and does not want to risk walking on sand. She also cannot do a lot of steps. Can anyone recommend a beach nearby where we could park relatively close to the beach or one that has a short path to a beach with perhaps benches to sit on to watch the water?

Holland State Park. They have a free beach wheelchair first come first serve. The beach house has lots of food options plus has beach chairs and unbrellas. Two paved areas. One from the pier going east for miles, quite a while by the water. An extention going past modern bathrooms, beach house and a split leading close to the water.

Oval Beach and Grand Haven City Beach you also can get very close to the water via paved trail. Pere Marquette in Muskegon, Stearn in Ludington, North Beach in Grand Haven, South Haven and Silver Beach in Saint Joseph are all handicap accessable. Many rent beach wheelchairs or wheelchairs. Beach chair availability on some locations. You can read more about area beaches on www.beachtowns.org
