Michigan Beach is a beach and small community on the south shore of Lake Ontario in St. Catharines, Regional Municipality of Niagara, Ontario, Canada and is part of the Golden Horseshoe region. It is located between Port Dalhousie and Port Weller. Named for the Michiganers, a group of seasonal workers from the State of Michigan who travelled to Port Dalhousie to work on the Welland Canal during the summer months, the area served as their seasonal community. Today, Michigan Beach is home to the St. Catharines Marina, the Michigan Beach Pier and Lighthouse, and a number of upscale condominiums.
