The pier is a beautiful walk. Tournament weekend kept us from fishing out of it but the dock and channel are well maintained and make easy boat entry and exit into lake .

The views are spectacular (even on a gloomy day). We enjoyed the pier on a heavily overcast day and a bright sunny day. Worth the walk out! Town was lovely as well. The farmers market on saturdays was amazing! Enjoyed the variety.

On the Lake Huron Lighthouse Trail......at the top of the "thumb" of Michigan. Very accessible public park. Beautiful scenic and panoramic view of the harbor. Port Austin is a lovely little town. About an hour and 45 minutes Northeast of Detroit.

A small marina for the boat owners, but fun to walk and check out. We watched the ducks and a few pelicans. It was a relaxing place to visit after a long day of the noisier beaches.

Great sightseeing place and a sandy beach as well. Kayaks are available to rent as well and you can take a walk on the boardwalk!

Port Austin has put a lot of time and money into their marina and walkway. The beach is also very well constructed.

The adjacent breakwater and the marina provides a nice walk from the downtown area. You can see the Port Austin Reef Lighthouse from there and zoom in with your camera.
