The Douglas and Saugatuck beaches are as varied as the towns themselves. Hustle and bustle or peace and solitude - take your pick!

The beaches all seem to have their own personality - and following. They're all beautiful and just waiting for you to enjoy. Drive in, hike in, or ride there by way of the one-and-only hand-pulled chain ferry.

Do You Have Photos or Stories from Douglas Saugatuck Beaches You Could Share?

If you'd like to enjoy a few of the beaches in neighboring towns, start with South Haven Beaches just 20 minutes down the highway. Or continue on down the highway about 30 minutes further to St. Joseph Michigan's world famous Silver Beach. In Southwest Michigan, you have great choices for your family vacation.

While all public beaches have rules, they vary by beach and location. However, there are a few rules that are fairly standard at nearly all of the Douglas Saugatuck Beaches. Some feel the rules help their beach experience while others feel it hinders their enjoyment.

These rules are:
No Glass
No Alcohol
No Motorized Vehicles
No Fires
No Dogs (a few beaches do allow leashed dogs)

If these rules are too restrictive for you, why not consider .....

A Private Beach

If the beach restrictions above would tend to "cramp your style", why not consider a private beach? How? How about one of many Michigan vacation rentals that have their own beach or are in a subdivision that shares private beach access among its owners?

There are also a few resorts who own Lake Michigan frontage and have their own beach guidelines in place. In these situations, the owners "make their own rules", within reason of course.

While most people can enjoy themselves with the rules and regulations on public beaches, some people do love to have an evening campfire, a cold beer on a hot day, a glass of wine at sunset, play water retrival games with their dog, or other activities that are just not possible within public beach restrictions.

Planning your Michigan family beach vacation in a vacation rental with private beach access or a resort with the same will help you enjoy your leisure time with fewer restrictions..

Enjoy the beauty of Michigan's Beaches.

And, we'll see you around _South Haven To Saugatuck and Beyond
