Great Lakes beaches on maps.

From the cobble beaches of Washington Island, to the gently rolling dunes of Sheboygan, to the soft, sandy beaches of our inland lakes and rivers, beaches are nature’s nirvana. Wisconsin’s beaches provide wildlife habitat, recreation areas and tourist destinations. Unfortunately beaches are especially vulnerable to agricultural, urban and industrial land uses, and many of our beaches are showing the effects. We invite you to explore, enjoy and help protect and restore Wisconsin’s beaches.
