At the Bay Breeze Resort you don’t have to fight the crowds for a spot on the beach. Enjoy our own private beach in Ephraim Harbor, located right across the road from the resort. (The beach is open seasonally. The size of the beach varies depending on the lake level.)
Bring your beach chairs, towels, and toys and soak up the sun and views of Peninsula State Park’s Eagle Bluff on your left, a panorama of the historic village of Ephraim on your right, and the sailboats moored in the harbor in front of you.
Ephraim Harbor is hugely popular with kite surfers and windsurfers, and on a good day you can sit on the beach and watch a half dozen brave souls weave around and over boats. The harbor is also popular with paddleboarders and kayakers (rent your own at Bay Shore Outfitters), who rent or launch from South Shore Pier to explore the shoreline, views, and caves beneath Eagle Bluff.
Feel free to bring a good book, a cup of coffee, wine, beer, or whatever your favorite beverage (no glass please), and relax all day. It’s not a bad place to watch the sun come up or go down either.
For a moment at least, you’ll love having your own private sand beach in Ephraim.
And if you want a bigger beach, head just a short walk down the road to the Ephraim Public Beach, or drive 10 minutes into Peninsula State Park to join the fun at Nicolet Beach. There you’ll find volleyball courts, a large park for frisbee and other games, grills, picnic tables, kayak, paddleboard, and pedal boat rentals, and concessions.
