Park Point sands can sing after a good storm or when the waves get rocking. Try checking out a stretch of beach that isn't near a public access, after the waves push all the wood to a high water mark. It isn't a sure bet that you'll hear it but I heard them sing last summer on a couple of beach walks in between Lafayette Park and the Beach House.

It really does sing! We ran into this last fall at Munising Michigan as well. The sand was really singing over there. We assumed it was a combo of the right fine grained sand and then temperature plays a role. Seems to be many factors that make it sing well.
