Hiking – or Relaxing – on Little Presque Isle Beach

little presque isle marquette michigan 500From inland gems like Teal Lake to the vast coastline of Lake Superior, Marquette County has no shortage of water frontage. If you’re staying in the Marquette area during the warm season, you’ll probably find yourself at the beach near Picnic Rocks at some point. You may even make it to the famed Blackrocks area on the far side of Presque Isle.

But what if you’re looking for a Lake Superior beach that’s a bit farther from the beaten path? You don’t have to go far: Just a few miles up Big Bay Road from Marquette, Little Presque Isle Beach showcases the awesome splendor of the big lake and the rugged rises of the Huron Mountains in one secluded package. The area is a top hiking destination in all seasons, as well as a prime spot for sunbathing, relaxing, beach games, and (if you don’t mind the water’s chill) swimming. It’s even as decent spot for freshwater surfing, as indicated by this regularly updated surf forecast.

One note: Little Presque Isle Beach is actually located on the mainland, facing the island of the same name. Little Presque Isle is separated from the beach by a submerged sandbar that’s usually passable. (If the water is high, you can always swim, though you’ll need to take proper precautions.) This area is one of the first parts of the lake to freeze in winter, making it easily accessible during the snowy season.
