South Beach is located in Marquette’s south side in Michigan’s Marquette County. This is a sandy beach on the shore of Lake Superior in Marquette Bay. There are 2 sets of stairs and a handicap ramp that provide easy access to the beach from a paved parking area. It is a kid and pet friendly beach particularly due to the water being shallow near the beach and playground equipment. Marquette Harbor Lighthouse is viewable from the beach and is just 1.9 miles (3kms) away.
