The SBPOA Clubhouse


Membership provides for a discounted rental rate for our clubhouse facilities for your private parties. Make sure you click on the clubhouse tab to learn of all the amenities at the clubhouse.

Our Great Shorefront


Membership includes 5 tags which are your credentials to access the beautiful 1-1/4-mile Long Island Sound shoreline using the SBPOA East or West Beach Stairs. Stair access is through membership only and is private year round.

Kayak Racks


Members have the ability to secure a kayak storage rack space on our beach landing area.  Kayak storage racks are for members only on a first-come-first-served basis as space allows and comes free with membership. 

Be sure that you clearly mark the membership application if you are interested in a kayak space.  You can e-mail us at sbpoainfo@sbpoa.org for questions pertaining to kayaks.

The SBPOA is an organization entrusted with the care and maintenance of the beach access, parkland and our clubhouse. 

Membership gives you easy beach access for your family and out-of-town visitors. We have roped off swimming areas at two beaches with lifeguards during the summer season. Benches at the top of the SBPOA stairs are prime viewing spots for spectacular sunsets. Our parklands and staircases to the beach belong to this private community-based organization that was established in 1929.  The facilities of SBPOA are maintained only through membership dues. Therefore only members and non-resident guests are permitted to use them. RESIDENTS OF SOUND BEACH WHO CHOOSE NOT TO BE MEMBERS CANNOT BE GUESTS ON YOUR TAGS. 

We welcome new and renewing members from our local area.
