Visitors Come To Islands For Swimming Holiday

Dewi Winkle from Swimtrek

Up to a dozen visitors will be swimming between our islands over the next 3 weeks as part of a specialist activity holiday organised by Swimtrek.

Swintrek arrange sporting breaks all over the world and started a programme on our islands last year.

Organiser Dewi Winkle has come to Scilly for the first time after spending time in Croatia and around the Adriatic.

He says Scilly ticks ‘all the boxes’ for a swimming holiday, including beautifully clear waters with plenty going on above and below the surface.

Dewi says the swimmers will be in the water for around three hours each day and will walk around the islands that they swim to.

He says its not just a holiday for seriously fit swimmers either – they cater for all abilities and spend time helping the swimmers to improve their technique while ensuring they have time to enjoy the islands.
