Join Sea Swim Cornwall for their Slow Swimming Day Out, which includes a dip at Trebah Beach!
The plan for 2024 is to take on 3 leisurely swims, over half a day on the north side of the river.
Once parked up in the National Trust car park (TR11 5JR) we'll walk down to Durgan Beach / Village, swimming towards Grebe Beach and back. We'll then pop over to the stunning Grebe Beach, where we'll swim towards Porth Saxon followed by a short drive to the beautiful Trebah Gardens. Here we'll walk down through the gardens and swim from their private beach. Trebah have a beach and main cafe, for post-swim lunch/refreshments. You're then welcome to spend the rest of the day exploring the gardens or relaxing on their private beach.
All of the swims offer circular routes (starting and finishing in the same place) and flexible distances. We have a number of people on water safety, allowing us to split into sub-groups and offer various distance routes...ranging from 200m - 1.2km. Head up breaststroke all the way through to front crawl is absolutely fine. We'd suggest leaving valuables in your cars. We can take car keys, in secure dry bags.
*Whilst the Helford is well sheltered, there is a small chance the conditions will force us to change location. In the event of extreme conditions, a refund will be issued (minus a small admin fee). In the event of a change of location (to the north side of the Helford), a partial refund will be issued to cover the cost of entry at Trebah (as this will no longer be required).
Please note, as this event is only partly held at Trebah there is no discount for Trebah members.
