What to know about Ludington's Beaches
Ludington's award-winning beaches are known for the sugar sand, amenities and beautiful landscapes. From building sandcastles to playing beach volleyball to just laying around catching some sun, a day at the beach is a day well spent. As the day comes to a close and the sun begins to set, the sky over Lake Michigan is painted with vibrant colors of orange, pink and purple. Locals and visitors gather each night along the lakeshore, with an ice cream cone in hand, to salute the sunset and welcome the SS Badger back to port. Not sure which beach to choose?
