Top 10 paddle boarding locations

So, you’ve got all the kit you need, a bucket full of enthusiasm, wagging tail in tow, and of course tasty treats – now all you need is the perfect location for you and pup to SUP.

Depending where you live in the UK and how far you are willing to travel there are fantastic paddle boards all around, all you need to do is set off for the adventure spot that best suits your needs, be it coast line, river, estuary or a calm and quiet lake.
top paddle boarding spots

We’ve picked out ten favourites locations for paddle boarders to consider:

A safe and steady adventure park

If you are a novice needing a little practice then check out your local adventure parks as they provide a great safe space to practice and usually offer low entry points that also have plenty of room. Many locations can also offer training to help you get started too.

The Coast

For a sunny warm day you can’t beat a paddle at the beach and that goes for paddle boarding too. However, with more wind and waves it is wise to be relatively experienced in paddle boarding before you brave the open waters as the tide and currents can add increase the level of skill required, especially with a dog in tow. Staying very close to the shore is a great way to practice familiarising with a few small waves.

Rivers & Estuary exploration

A river or estuary can be wonderfully scenic and offer a challenge but do check out winds and tides before setting off. Paddle boarding is certainly more challenging in the wind and against the tide so make sure you’re not going to get stuck on your return. If paddling up or down a river or within an estuary, time your paddle so that you are paddling with the tide, rather than against it. A still river or gently paced down-stream one with easy access points may suit those still lacking in plenty of experience. And check in case you need a license too, when paddling on rivers.

Get those paws ready for paddling!

The Go Paddling website provides great information to find the best paddle board locations around the UK, whether you’re looking for ‘paddle points’ for a perfect staycation or paddle trails to give you access to great paddle board routes to explore. The website also provides insight into the licenses that you may need for the different waterways and how you can get them.

When working out where to paddle board near you, always make sure you prioritise safety first, so that you can focus on having a wonderful time with your four-legged friend. Check out these great safety tips from our friends at Red Paddle Co.

Bala Lake, Wales - gorgeous mountain scenery

This lake is not only Wales' largest freshwater natural lake, but it is also flanked by Snowdonia's magnificent hills, which will leave you breathless. The location is quickly becoming one of the greatest for water activities during the holidays.

With a length of one mile and a width of one mile, the lake is ideal for a fast paddle. To avoid getting into problems with the local authorities, remember to obtain permission from the Snowdonia National Park, which carries a small daily cost. Llyn Padarn is another Welsh stunner to check out. Situated in the heart of Snowdonia, and an absolute must for any Stand Up Paddleboarder when in Wales.
