Big Lake waves bring out the Wind Surfers in Muskegon | News
The big winds and waves of October may be over, but the Big Lake has a mind of her own and waves kicked up this past weekend that gave wind surfers a challenge not much less than a couple of weeks ago. As waves crashed over the pier and light house at Muskegon’s Pere Marquette Park wind surfers braved the breakers for a wild ride.
This wind surfer was slightly protected between the pier heads of the Muskegon Channel, but the waves and the wind were still giving him a wild ride.
The Pere Marquette Beach on the shores of Lake Michigan and adjoining the Muskegon Lake Channel is the only nationally certified "Clean Beach" on the great lakes. Miles of beach, beautiful sunsets, and the newly-completed bike trail make this beach a must for a visit. Pere Marquette Public Beach and Park covers 27.5 acres with 2.5 miles of public beach in Muskegon County. The park contains a number of play areas, sand volleyball courts, and well-kept picnic and sunbathing areas. Pere Marquette Beach offers over 200 feet of paved handicap accessible walkways to ensure enjoyment for a wide variety of visitors.
The beauty of the beach at Pere Marquette knows no season and offers wonderful views every day from the spring sunsets to the winter icebergs, and all the days in between, you will enjoy it any day you visit.
