The Secret Tropical Beach In Wisconsin Where The Water Is A Mesmerizing Blue

Way up at the tip of Door County sits Washington Island. The passage between the island and the rest of the peninsula was known by local Native Americans as “Death’s Door” and it’s how Door County got its name. Though the waters here can be treacherous for boats, what you’ll find when you make it to Washington Island is the stuff of dreams.

On the north side of the island there’s a bit of an inlet. Washington Harbor has carved out a little niche and right at the bottom sits Schoolhouse Beach State Park. The beach here is one of the most unique in the world – there are just five like it anywhere. Schoolhouse Beach provides crystal clear water up close and at a distance, you’ll find some of the bluest waters anywhere – you’ll have a hard time remembering you’re actually in Wisconsin.

Schoolhouse Beach is located at 1824 Washington Harbor Rd, Washington, WI 54246.
