Lake Michigan Beaches - Harbor Country

THE WARMEST SPOT ON THE LAKE MICHIGAN SUNSET COAST

Our pristine Lake Michigan shoreline is the pride of Harbor Country. Anchored by the City of New Buffalo public beach to the south and Weko Beach - Bridgman to the north.

Watch as the sun slowly sets into the waters of Lake Michigan on one of the very few sunset coasts in the United States.
