Secret swims in Costa Brava

This season our technical team offers all open water lovers the possibility to indulge in a different type of training in the most spectacular spots off the beaten track of the Catalan coast.

Secret Swims are born out of this philosophy. “Secret” in this context means that, on the one hand, training takes place in uncrowded and secluded spots, and, on the other hand, the swimming location is not disclosed to the participants until  the very same day of the activity.

These sessions are designed for swimmers who not only enjoy every single stroke but also delight in the beauty of the surroundings. Thus, on the day of the training we will make several stops to take pictures and have a snack in spots accessible only through swimming.


Dates: Saturdays and Sundays
Location: The swimming location won’t be disclosed until the very same day of the activity.
Duration: All day
Training fee: EUR 35 per session
Contact:  info@swimthecostabrava.com
Meeting point:  Car Park at the Nova Marbella (or Mar Bella) beach in Barcelona (depending on the origin of the participants a different meeting point can be arranged).

-On-site coach directing and adapting the session to the group’s level
-Gift bag: Silicone cap+ backpack+ water bottle+discount vouchers.
