Top 4 places to paddle board in Brighton

Brighton is a coastal city in Southern England that offers some of the best paddle board spots in the country. The pebbled beaches are a great setting for those looking to get out onto the waters. Here are 4 of the best places and routes to paddle board in the city. 

Palace Pier to the Marina

The first stop on our whistle-stop tour of Brighton SUP points is the Palace Pier. This central route starts at the Pier and around the old structure standing in the waves. Once around the structure, you can either head back to the beach or paddle out to the Marina wall which should be visible in the distance. 

This is the shortest of the routes, and should take between 0.5 and 1 hour to complete. 

West Pier to Palace Pier 

The next leg is the West Pier to Palace Pier route. This popular paddle board trail sees you start out paddling around the West Pier which gives you a great view of the beachfront, you can then head east towards the Palace Pier which will give you a great view of the fairground. Following the Pier back to shore will give you access to some of the best refreshments and restaurants in the city. 

This route will take between 0.5 and 2 hours to complete depending on your speed and the number of breaks. 

Southwick to the Marina

If you are looking for a challenge then paddling from Southwick to the Marina is a great place to start. No matter which way you are heading there is free parking at both ends of the route which is perfect if there are strong prevailing winds in either direction. 

There are plenty of places to stop for a break across the whole route which is perfect as it is a bit of a long one! It will take intermediate paddle boarders around 3 hours to complete.
