Oval Beach Reviews & Ratings
Wow...beautiful...so much to like.... $10 for daily pass...Ample parking, short walk down the beach from your vehicle... Slightly elevated steps..instead of regular steps that have a big step gap from one to the other...these made it so much easier...perfect...to go up to restrooms or head back to vehicle... or down to the beach..and not that many steps either. beach area so nice...was very clean, hardly any seagulls..... The water and temperature was glorious, and clean...windy day which made an abundance of nice size waves...perfect for jumping, gliding over them or letting them wash over you....we had a blast today.. The restrooms and changing room are are clean and easily accessible.. Also have a concession stand to buy snacks or beverages... Picnic tables...and couple of swings for kids.. Several benches to just sit and take in the scenery, or take a break.. Very very nice and enjoyable beach.. I will return...😊👍
The beach is beautiful and more importantly, CLEAN. I've been to beaches before that smelled of rotting fish and trash strewn about. This beach was gorgeous and the sand was soft and clean and nice to walk through. We went later in the day (about 5) so we were able to park right at the edge of the beach. Definitely enjoyed my time there and will for sure be back!
Absolutely beautiful and relaxing! Inspiring and gorgeous art and so many boutiques with high end fashion! This is my third time within a 2 year basis..and I love this place! Definitely a fun get away!!
Oval Beach is always lovely. There are miles of unblemished beautiful powdery sand. Very clean and well-kept facility including bathhouse changing area, outdoor showers for washing sand away, a concession stand and gift shop. Plenty of parking and it only a $10 admission make Oval Beach in Saugatuck one of the best stops on South West Michigan's coast. I love this beach. Its one of the finest around.
Great beach. Parking is close which is nice with little ones. Clean bathrooms and concessions are fair priced. Loved the concessions because it was less we had to pack. Water was nice. Beach was very clean, they had people walking up and down the beach all day picking up trash. Drove 2 hrs to get there and it’s worth it. Will make another trip this summer.
