As we close out another August in Michigan, these beaches are closed this weekend.

With some kids already back in school and others starting on Monday, we are down to our last "summer vacation" weekend for 2022. That might mean you want to take the family on one more trip to the beach. If you do, just make sure that the beach you want to go to is open.

With over 1,000 beaches in the state, there is no shortage of fun in the sun. However, some Michigan beaches are notorious for being closed, much of the time due to contamination. Check out the shortlist below of Michigan beaches that are closed or have advisories.

Even though there are only three actual closures, the contamination advisories would be enough to keep me away from them for sure.
