Beaches To Visit On Your Yacht Charter

Lake Michigan is 494 kilometers long, so there is plenty to see on your trip. Whilst you’re out sailing why not visit some of Lake Michigan’s best beaches. 

Silver Beach – St Joseph, Michigan

If you are sailing with your family then Silver Beach is a great beach to visit. It has a variety of different activities for you all to enjoy such as Kayaking, volleyball, Stand up paddleboard, and playground. It also has some handy amenities like outdoor showers, picnic tables, concession stands, and grills, which makes it a great place to make a pit stop.

Sleeping Bear Dunes – Honor, Michigan

If you have hired your private yacht for a romantic getaway then you need to visit the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore at sunset. Wonder along the banks and parks full of wildflowers and then find a cozy place to sit on the beach to watch the sunset with your loved one.

Oak Street Beach, Chicago, Illinois

When sailing Lake Michigan you might want to take a trip to Chicago. Although Chicago is famous for its city life and deep pan pizzas it is also home to sandy beaches. Not far from the Gold Coast this beach offers bike rentals, volleyball, and plenty of restaurants and concession stands. It is a great place to make a pit stop before you head into the city.

Cities To Visit On Your Yacht Charter

There are so many cities along the Lake Michigan coastline, so if you are thinking about making a few stops whilst hiring your private yacht charter then we think these places would be great to visit.

Mackinac Island

This one is more of an island than a city but definitely worth the visit! It is a hallmark picture town with quaint architecture and friendly locals. You might notice when you arrive that this island has no cars so to get around you will either need to walk, cycle, by horse and carriage, or by snowmobile in the winter. 


If you love jazz, pizza, and nightlife then Chicago should be on your list. Whether you are stopping for a bite to eat, a broadway show or to visit the many boho clubs, Chicago offers everything. To take in the city lights head on over to the 360 Chicago, 94 floors high you will be 1030 feet above Chicago’s streets. Grab a cocktail and take in the view or if you like a thrill try out the TILT, a glass-enclosed platform that tilts 30-degrees over the side of the building.
