Paddleboarding in Weed Beach, Darien, USA


Weed Beach in Darien, CT is located about an hour away from Manhattan, up the coast. Metro North Railway makes the trip an easy get-away from the bustle of the city. Weed Beach is one of the town's public beaches. It provides a launch into Long Island Sound as well as a snack bar, walking trails, tennis and paddle courts and a sea-inspired playground.

Beach Yoga occurs on Saturday mornings on the deck with an awesome view of the water and you will find all-level SUP Yoga classes, both Saturday and Sunday mornings, with the sway of the sea. There is a day rate to enter the beach but with proof of advanced reservation on a rental or a class, this fee is waived.


The summer season in Connecticut is revered, so make sure to book a trip between the high months of June and August to see the Sound come alive with boaters, bathers and paddle boarders. 

The tide will gently shift the access to the water, but water fun is generally available whatever the weather. A fun day may include an early morning class tucked in close to the marsh where the water is slow and easy, then a BEC (Bacon, Egg and Cheese) and a good book in the sand. 

Another option would be to board to troll along the coast, just watch out for rocks, boaters and the oyster beds. On your way out of Weed Beach try Bodega for tasty tacos and guacamole or 1020 Post for a few of those oysters you just paddled over.
