Description
Great Sand Bay is located in Keweenaw County, Michigan. Great Sand Bay Beach is locally known as Sand Dune Drive. There is a roadway at the top of the Penninsula that overlooks this rocky and natural beach, where you will get some of the most scenic views. 

Although this is a favorite place to view the beach, the actual beach does not get incredibly crowded, making it a great place to walk your pup or take them in the water a bit. It does get a little more crowded in the summers where it becomes a popular spot for some sun tanning and swimming. 

You will find the beach is not huge and is quite narrow. The sand is made from a combination of sand and rocks, and the water is shallow, making it warmer than much of the other surrounding beaches. The shallow water also makes for a relaxing water experience for your pooch as well, mainly if you have a small doggy. 

Picture taking your dog to a beach where you have stunning waves and a sandy shoreline, but is backed up by towering sand dunes, lush vegetation, and massive red pine trees. It is truly a sight to behold. 

Locals and visitors like to come to the beach to catch the sun setting over the water as well. You can explore some of the surrounding trails. There is plenty of parking in the parking lots around the beach. The biggest parking lot also has restroom facilities. 

As always, make sure you clean up after your dog goes to the bathroom. They do not have poop bags, so you must bring your own bags with you. If you come with your dog during the day, make sure you bring them cool water and a bowl to drink from so they don't become dehydrated or suffer from overheating!
