kayaking in brighton beach

Things to do down at the beach this weekend!

Look at this weather! Is this it? Has Summer finally arrived?

I’m heading down to the beach and making the most of this weekend before the good weather is scared off!

But I’m not going to take it lying down – I’m going to pack as many of these activities in as I possibly can:

Sussex Dolphin Project

For anyone wanting to get closer to nature, the World Cetacean Alliance (WCA) is the world’s largest marine conservation partnership. WCA champions the protection of marine habitats through community engagement, by focusing on whales and dolphins (cetaceans).

The Sussex Dolphin Project is WCA’s local initiative that was set up to celebrate the cultural heritage that Sussex has with Dolphins, whilst trying to inspire and excite the local community about conservation issues along the Sussex coast.



Brighton Watersports provides kayak hire, ringo rides, wakeboarding, stand up paddleboard (SUP) hire and SUP tuition, and many other water sports activities on Brighton beach. The company has superb facilities in both Brighton and across the south east for water sports hire. Its SUP and kayaking instructors are experienced and fully qualified. Brighton Watersports provides all you need for a ”fun SUP or kayaking hire session, including wetsuits, all safety equipment and secure changing facilities.”

 For those looking to get away from it all and find their inner self, the Luna Wave community is a fantastic way to get you back into physical and mental shape (or indeed keep you in tip-top shape), while taking onboard the sea air. Customers are now able to purchase in-studio passes and book in-studio classes from the timetable.


Saltdean Lido

If you want a little trip back in time, just a day out with the kids or the older members of the family, Saltdean Lido is one of only two Grade II listed lidos in the UK. The pool and its art-deco building were brought back into public use after a campaign by the Saltdean Lido Community Interest Company and the Saltdean Lido Trust, with the support of the National Lottery Heritage Fund and key stakeholders.


The pool has now been reinstated to its original glory showing off its 1937 crescent-shaped design. It’s a perfect place to spend time in the sun and take a dip, knowing you’re swimming and enjoying yourself while helping a local gem imbued with heritage.

Hove Lagoon

Hove Lagoon is the perfect place to pick up a new hobby like paddle boarding, especially for those not wanting to venture into the sea too early with a new sport! With the old Victorian boating lake only waist deep, you can stand up any time you need to while you gain confidence.


Being next to the sea, those who are ready can still enhance their learning away from the lagoon and set out on the city’s waters themselves. The lagoon is in the middle of a public park, so not only do customers have the beach nearby, but it also has a kids play area and a skate park giving anyone not planning on getting wet something to do. There is also an onsite licensed cafe for spectators and participants.
