Living in Juneau brings lots of daily adventure, especially if you live in close proximity to Sandy Beach. The area is not only picturesque, but loaded with history.
Rain or shine, there is always something to do at Douglas Island’s Sandy Beach. It's a great location for dog walking, family barbeques, and even serves as an easy jumping off point for paddleboarding.
Earlier this summer, I joined my friends, Debbie and Heather, on a little excursion to paddleboard along the Sandy Beach shoreline and around the old and historic Pump House. It was sunny and warm (by Alaska standards), but we still wore wetsuits and little booties – and had an absolute blast!
I highly recommend the paddleboarding experience to visitors and locals alike. Want to check it out for yourself? Blue Nose Surf specializes in outfitting folks for paddleboarding and surfing in southeast Alaska. Better yet, they’re located on Douglas Island – so you’ll be just a hop, skip, and jump from Sandy Beach.
