  • We always like to venture to the lighthouse and see the views. During the winter its equally beautiful because of the ice and snow. Just be careful and make sure it's safe to walk the pier, if you cho...  more »

  • It's always beautiful here. But obviously Michigan Winters can change your viewing options because of the EXTREME COLD & WIND CHILL FACTOR. And on days with severe storms only the morons will walk the lighthouse pier and it's sister pier (South Haven's "North Pier") across the way from it. And speaking of... DON'T jump off of the pier into the water: first of all the undertow can drag you under the water and at best put you into the hospital and at worse, guess... Second of all, there are HUGE boulders that the US Army placed there as a breakwater to help stop the waves from doing harm to the pier. I'm not sure if they are around the North Pier, but they do surround the South Pier. And yes, some intelligently elite persons have jumped off the pier and paid the price: paralysis, and death. It's so on the web, research it - don't just take it from me. All in all, the piers "are a beautiful site to behold" & they may be a great and beautiful experience for you (and your loved ones) but PLEASE DO be mindful of and respect your own mortality (and others while you are there). A lifeguard can only do so much; common sense can do a lot more. They and the Coast Guard risk their lives for ours, but why cause them risk?!?!? There are "Warning Signs" posted there, so for your own safety please do read them. I've never had the need before this to write such a unique type of review; but hopefully it will help you & others have A SAFE, ENJOYABLE, AND FUN TIME. Enjoy! 😀
  • Pretty much any Lighthouse, Pier, dock, beach along Lake Michigan is a beautiful place. You cannot go wrong with visiting South Haven pier and lighthouse. Enjoy Pure Michigan. I would Highly Recommend visiting the lighthouses on Michigan's west coast. Beautiful!!
