The bay is defined by a curved point of land. On the southern end is Tawas City Shoreline Park and on the other end of the curve is Tawas Point State Park and the Tawas Point Lighthouse. Those two points are connected by good roads, biking and walking trails and those beautiful beaches. Tawas Bay is perfect for sailing, paddling, fishing, power boating, and wave runners.  The bay is also a favorite destination for kite-boarding. All of the Lake Huron beaches slope gently down to the bay, creating a great place for outings to play in the sand and water.
