Beach Box Permit

Fire Permit / Beach Party

Full Beach Regulations

Weekapaug has two beautiful beaches. Lifeguards are on duty at both beaches at specified times during the summer season, weather permitting. The Inn Beach will have lifeguard supervision from 10am-5:30pm and Fenway Beach from 10am-6pm. Bathers should be aware of possible rip c15urrents and undertows at both beaches. It is strongly encouraged for each bather to check-in with the life guards to get a sense of the conditions of the surf, as well as let them know you will be under their care.

Beach buttons are available to Weekapaug Fire District residents for an annual fee and must be displayed at the beaches by everyone 13 years and older. Walking or biking to the beaches is encouraged as parking is limited. Parking is permitted for WFD residents with a parking sticker which is available through the WFD office for an annual fee. It is recommended to lock all bikes, while enjoying the beach.

Please take the time to read the rules posted on the large painted beach boards at the entrance of each beach.

Beach boxes are permitted for residents only on Fenway Beach and require identification and a pre-paid fee at the WFD office. Beach box dimensions need to be 5’L x 3’W x 3”H. Larger boxes will be required to sit in the parking lot.

Fenway Beach is the designated area for beach parties. Fire permits may be obtained at the WFD office, with a refundable security deposit required.

 

For safety, surfboard and boogie boards can be used at the beach only within certain parameters. Any board with a hard fin is prohibited while the life guards are on duty. Boards which hold a soft fin will be allowed on the surf only at the discretion of the life guards. Your child will need to bring their board to the life guard for inspection before taking it into the water.

DOGS ARE NOT ALLOWED ON ANY WFD BEACH AT ANY TIME.

We ask that all beach goers carry out whatever they choose to bring in. There is a dumpster in the Fenway parking lot for daily trash. No alcoholic beverages or glass containers are allowed on the beaches.

Staying off the dunes and dune grass is vital to the preservation of the dunes and the beaches.

The two Weekapaug beaches each have their own distinct character. Fenway Beach sits across from the Fire District office and is ideal for families with young children. It has a gentle slope, is ideal for swimming, building sand castles and body surfing. The Inn Beach, directly across from the Weekapaug Yacht Club, is geared more for older families, as well as Inn guests. With its more abrupt drop-off, this beach requires a quick entry into the water and is ideal for swimming parallel to the shore.

Enjoy the beaches, help us keep them clean and stay safe!
