Great Sand Bay

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.

Great Sand Bay.

Check out the shoreline viewer. This beach is on M-26, North of Eagle River and South of Eagle Harbor.

GSB. My beachball is 21... look out.

Once again, G knows how to make the water stop in mid-air.

    The beach to go to for wave jumping. Three miles south is the Jampot where you can stock up on freshly made cookies, caramels, muffins, jams, and many more items made by monks. The stuff is truly awesome! And of course the beach is too.
