Kupiškis Lagoon is also known for its isles which have witty names: Mother-in-law's Tongue (there is a dendrological park on this isle) and Son-in-law's Shelter. Kupiškis Lagoon is a favourite recreation place of local people and guests. Every year various sports events are held here: “Lagoon Regatta”, an international powerboat racing competition, Lithuanian and international triathlon events, Lithuanian Beach Soccer Championship and others. Ice-Fishing Competition and summer festivals are held here too. There is a beach, 19 recreation areas, sports fields, parking lots, overwater bungalows and cabins in the pine forest.
