Wild Swimming Holiday in Cornwall, what to expect
As Seen In Outdoor Swimmer Magazine

Discover the joys of sea swimming, estuary swooshing, hidden beaches and coves, sea pools and lidos on our exploration of swimming in the wonderful Cornish sea air. We have created the perfect balance of exploration and relaxation, immersing guests in some of the most iconic swims in some of the most remote places in the Duchy.

The tour is fuelled by Cornish Cream Teas, wonderful seafood, pasties and great company!

Iconic Cornwall Swims With Like-Minded People

All our South Cornwall swimming holidays are open to all types of swimmers – the “dippers”, the head up breaststrokers and the 10k warriors, with options for all, every day.

Our qualified and safety conscious guides ensure there is enough swimming and variety of swims, for all levels of swimmer (we suggest swimmers can swim 400m as a minimum).

There is nothing more reviving and refreshing than swimming and dipping in the hidden swimming spots, coves and beaches of the Cornish Coast, with some walking on the South West Coastal path thrown in, it will be a magical journey that you’ll remember for a long time.

Cornish Wild Swimming Holiday Itinerary

Day 1Penzance

Arriving into Penzance for 4pm to meet your guide and settle into your hotel with some time in the evening to explore the local area.

Day 2Penzance Lido, the Lizard, Mullion Cove, Coverack, Cadgwith

An early morning dip in the Penzance Lido – a sea temperature salt water art deco haven and a new “hot” 35 degrees) geothermal pool for you to enjoy. If you can drag yourself out of the pool we head to the Lizard which has some of the most spectacular cliff-top views of the week, and a swim by the sheltered harbour at Mullion Cove. We transfer to the famous and pretty village of Coverack for a picturesque lunch and relaxed afternoon swim along the beach and the devil’s frying pan sea cave! With an optional swim at Cadgwith if time, we head to our hotel in the evening after an action-packed day.

Day 3St Ives, Porthmeor, Carbis Bay, Marazion

Transferring and taking the train into St Ives – known as one of Britain’s most beautiful train journeys! – we take the morning to explore the town, swim in the sheltered harbour or the Atlantic facing Porthmeor Beach. Look out for seals, regularly spotted perusing this coast line and happily floating alongside swimmers with their natural curiosity. Lunching in Carbis Bay, and swimming crystal clear water, you’ll be forgiven for thinking you are in the Caribbean! In the afternoon there is an optional transfer towards Marazion to swim in the bay, with stunning views over the causeway to St Michael’s Mount. We dine as a group for our last night’s dinner.

Day 4Farewells

After a relaxed breakfast we say our goodbyes, helping with all ongoing travel arrangements.

With easy rail / bus and car journeys from London, Bristol or the Midlands, arrive to the start of your trip ready to go! Immerse yourself on the wonderful South Cornwall coast, with a wide range of swims and relax in the evenings with like-minded people in some of the best pubs known to man! We’ll start your holiday straight from the train station at Lostwithiel so just bring yourself, your swimwear, tow float, wetsuit (if you use one) some sturdy walking shoes and a sense of adventure – we’ll cover everything else.

Fully Guided, Hassle Free Swimming Adventures

Led by our outstanding qualified swimming guides, we know every beach and cove, beach cafe stop, local pub and restaurant, hidden away cove and isolated beach! Most importantly we are students of the sea and understand where and when to swim in relation to tides and weather conditions. 

We take care of everything for you, with your accommodation pre-booked, all transfers between swims in our own vehicles, you’ll not need to worry about your luggage transfers, lunch and dinner bookings as it will all have been taken care of for you. All you need to do is relax, immerse yourself in the journey ahead and enjoy.

Swimmers are wonderful people – fact. Our guests are “the salt of the earth”, fun and supportive, groups become like family and often enjoy each others company so much they come back again – altogether!

FAQ

What is the best way to get to Cornwall?

The best way out of London and other major cities into the heart of Cornwall is by train. We start our tours straight from our station pickups – so arrive ready to get walking to your first swim adventure! For those looking to drive, there may be parking at the stations we pick up from where you can leave your cars for the duration of your trip. 

Can I join this Swimming Holiday on my own, as a single traveller?

Absolutely! We bring like-minded people together on these trips, to enjoy a group atmosphere, get stuck into some great activities, water sports, hikes and to share a well-deserved meal with at the end of each day. Over 30% of our guests travel alone and swimmers are always very accommodating and welcoming. Solo guests have the option to have a room on their own or share with another guest.

Do I need to be a good swimmer to go wild swimming?

We require guests to be competent swimmers. All guests must be able to swim 400m unsupported before joining this tour. If you would like to chat to one of our team about your particular trip, fitness and activity levels and what is involved in coming on one of our tours, please get in touch and we would be happy to help

What do I need to bring on this Cornwall Wild Swimming Holiday?

For all our tours we will send out kit lists in plenty of time before your tour.

  • It’s completely up to guests what they swim in, however we recommend wetsuits in April – June as the waters are still chilly! For “skins” swimmers, we ask for evidence that they are swimming regularly in advance of the tour. 
  • We provide brightly coloured hats for all guests
  • Tow-floats are mandatory, for visibility purposes 

What else do I need to bring?

  • We highly recommend bringing warm clothes – Dry robe / dressing gown etc – for after you have swum
  • Hats / warm shoes are also highly recommended
  • Beach shoes – such as crocs are required although flip flops are not recommended (to flimsy on rocky beaches)
  • Walking shoes / a strong pair of trainers are required as there are walks of up to 2 miles to access the more remote swimming locations
  • A walking jacket / trousers, should the weather be inclement
  • Relaxed evening attire – nothing smart needed!

Can I bring a non-swimming guest?

Non-swimmers are actively encouraged and play a full part in the tours. They will be able to walk to all the swims and be part of all of the group activities. They will not be able to travel in support boats or craft however.
