Summertime and lake recreation go hand-in-hand in the Midwest, especially here in the Great Lakes. Blue Harbor, one of the preeminent resorts in Wisconsin, is a quintessential lakeside escape in the heart of the Sheboygan summer action! Located on beautiful, sky blue Lake Michigan, we are your summer getaway headquarters. Whether you’re planning on surfing, stand-up paddleboarding, or kayaking, we are always a handful of steps away from an exciting Lake Michigan summer adventure!
Malibu of the Midwest – Surfs Up!
Sheboygan is the Malibu of the Midwest thanks to our prime location on Lake Michigan. We have ideal lake wind, providing spectacular waves on our quiet, alluring beaches. Before braving Lake Michigan, get a refresher or learn to surf inside Breaker Bay Waterpark at the Riptide Double Surf Simulator. We’re one of the only resorts in Wisconsin that offer a surf simulator. Rent surfboards at Sprecher’s dock by EOS Surf, just a 1/2 mile down the road. EOS knows the best locales to find the best breaks.
The stand-up paddleboarding craze reached Sheboygan years ago, and the popularity has not diminished. In fact, our location on Lake Michigan makes us a premier destination for stand-up paddleboarding. The waves on our massive Great Lake can be unforgiving, but our particular lakefront property is home to the quietest beach in the Sheboygan area. The waves are usually minor, and yet, still challenging enough for experienced thrillseekers. Blue Harbor Resort partners with EOS to offer stand-up paddleboard rentals on our pristine beach. EOS even gives lessons and wetsuit rentals—now you have to try paddleboarding! If you prefer to sit, canoeing and kayaking is also a great way to experience Lake Michigan.
Beach Yoga for the Soul
Summer lake activities don’t have to be as stimulating as surfing or stand-up paddleboarding. Start your morning with a quiet and rejuvenating beach yoga class, every Saturday in the summer at 8:45 a.m. Our instructor-led sessions, titled “Yoga on the Shores,” are entirely free! There’s nothing more refreshing than a golden sunrise, soft waves, and cool Lake Michigan breezes. If you’ve never tried yoga before, make sure to arrive early to receive pointers, wear proper attire, eat a light breakfast, and have an open mind.
