Great Sand Bay!!!!!!! Appropriate name for this beach. It has great sand, a great bay… it’s a great sand bay. And it is actually between Eagle River and Eagle Harbor (beaches 19 and 20). It could possibly be the prettiest stretch of highway along the Keweenaw. M-26 snakes along the crest of the sandy dunes, lending to a spectacular view of the beach, bay and good ol’ Lake Superior. It’s really difficult (even for a local) to drive this stretch of highway without stopping at the turnout to admire the view. Just a spectacular beach for a day trip. Very worth the drive.
Check out the shoreline viewer. This beach is on M-26, North of Eagle River and South of Eagle Harbor.
