Black Beach (Onyx Beach) Silver Bay, Minnesota

It’s hard to find any place along the North Shore of Lake Superior that is not amazingly beautiful, but Black Beach is definitely one of my favorite spots! It is secluded and we pretty much had the place to ourselves. We only saw around six people the whole time we were there. This is a crazy concept for a southerner that is used to very crowed places!

This area is privately owned and was only recently opened in 2015 for public use.

This unique beach is made up of fine grained black taconite. It appears gray in the photos, but looks black in person, especially when it is wet.

There are several picnic tables and a few fire pits to enjoy a picnic or fire. The water is a little cool, but the weather is great, even in August.

It is a great place for hiking, climbing, or just soaking up some sun while enjoying a great view of Lake Superior.

Happy Travels!
