Birch Bay is located on a shallow, crescent-shaped bay, this beach-side community offers a range of year-round recreation for families and couples looking for a get-away from the hustle and bustle of big towns.
Birch Bay is home to five different golf courses, a water slide park, go-carts, horseback riding, beach combing, C-Shop and more.
For the bird watchers, Birch Bay and nearby Blaine are a “birders paradise.” Birch Bay State Park and nearby Blaine’s Marine Park and Drayton Harbor are among the top birding spots on the Washington State Birding Trail’s Cascade Loop.
This area boasts the largest heron rookery as well as a huge number of water fowl and shorebirds in the spring, fall and winter months. Along Birch Bay Drive are a number of spots for catching glimpses of nesting eagles.
