We moved to South Haven a year ago. We walk out every chance we get. It is usually really peaceful. Occassionally crowded and watch the uneven and broken pavement! Also the dogs can be a nusance. They are technically (posted city ordinance) not allowed but inconsiderate pet owners don't seem to think that rule applies to them.

A stunning red lighthouse. Great to view from the bluff in South Haven or from the dunes north of the river. And a walk out on the pier for a close-up look is a must, no matter how many times one has done so previously.

The lighthouse sits out on the end of a pier accessible by a pier. The nearby beach is well-maintained and easily accessed from town and with a fair amount of parking. The lighthouse is automated and not as charming as some of the "ancient" ones along Lake Michigan.

The pictures are great, but it is hard to do justice to the actual lighthouse. It actually very beautiful.

Cold blustery day, winds were whipping and the waves were extreme. Wish we could have walked out on the pier, but common sense kicked in. Look forward to returning again in the summer. Breath taking in the winter.

The beach is a great stop. Spend the day here, walk the pier, and you must be here during the sunset.

We visited in late fall, a lot of the shops were closed. It is a beautiful little town! It is right on the waterfront. The harbor is beautiful, and the marinas are gorgeous! Quaint little restaurants make the ambiance nice!

The best time to shoot this place is at "blue hour", after the sun has set. The sky still has color, detail and substance. A little later there is enough darkness for the pier lights and the lighthouse to come on.

My boyfriend and I took a walk out to the lighthouse at night. It was very pretty with the moon reflecting off of the water, and there was another couple out there, too. It was a very nice last minute decision!
