I've been to this beach many times! It's a beautiful walk with a nice view! Bonus it's free to visit! You can swim here, but warning: it is Lake Superior so it's cold no matter the time of year.

We always have a great time spending countless hours at Carden Cove, in the summer. The beach is very spacious with lots of room for many families!
