We stopped here on a day trip to Huron, and we had a wonderful time. The sand was clean and soft, and we walked up and down the beach looking for beach glass.

Nickel Plated Beach is off the beaten path, but well worth the trouble of finding it. The beach is broad and sandy with lots of room for beach fun or just getting a tan. It can get crowded due to all of the little cottages...More

Plenty to do and very relaxing. Beach is always clean as are the grounds. Fun place even in the Fall and Winter to watch the birds and fishermen.

This is a nice Lil beach to go and check out. Our visit was in the fall so not many people. It was a beautiful sunny fall day. We stayed for about an hour.

Not that I've ever noticed but I've never checked though either. This is a smaller beach with the bare minimals.
