One of the World’s Best Beach Towns

Sun. Sand. And water, as far as the eye can see. With miles of Lake Michigan shoreline, one of Condé Nast Traveler’s “Top 25 Beaches in the World,” the Saugatuck/Douglas region shines all year long. Pick from six pristine beaches to soak up the sun, splash in the waves, or watch the sunset.

Hit the Trails

Our miles of trails let you choose the length and intensity of your outdoor adventure. Explore the gently rolling dunes and shoreline at Saugatuck Harbor Natural Area. Wander the sandy forest paths of Saugatuck Dunes State Park. Or get your heart pumping with a steep climb up and down Mt. Baldhead and be rewarded with a panoramic view of Lake Michigan.

Unsalted and Unsurpassed

From the winding Kalamazoo River to the harbor and big lake, there are so many opportunities to enjoy the water in the Saugatuck-Douglas area. Whether you take in our waterways from atop a double-decker paddleboat, charter a sailing or fishing excursion, or explore them under your own power in a kayak or canoe, you’ll find any encounter with our unsalted waves an enthralling experience.
