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.

Duration: All day
Training fee: EUR 35 per session

Easter open water swimming training camp on Costa Brava


catalonia in europe mapCosta Brava, Spain offers a perfect combination of stunning landscapes, mild climate, culture and cuisine.

This ideal amalgam of elements is part of the experience the athlete is going to live during his training camp, including alternative leisure options to enjoy after training sessions. A spectacular location on the edge of the sea has been selected for you in Spain (Costa Brava):

Cala Montgó, an ideal place to breathe in nature and calmness.

Mediterranean waters to swim in!

Transparent, clean, warm and full of life- all these words define the Meditteranean Sea water. Open water wimming in Spain not only brings great performance and technical efficiency but also pleasure of exercising amid magnificent coastal surroundings typical of the Costa Brava region.

For those who want to combine sea training with swimming pool training, we offer specific and personalized training programmes. To this wide spectrum of possibilities we should also add adavantages in terms on flight connections. Two airports connect Costa Brava, Spain with the rest of Europe, the international airport in Barcelona and the airport Girona-Costa Brava where mainly the airline Ryanair operates.



The open water training camp is aimed at either amateurs swimmers who would like to partake in the long-distance challenge or at swimmers who find it sufficient to participate in one competition a year. Each participant will be placed in a group depending on his/her level and previous open water swimmming experience. Since the open water training camp is thought for 8 participants maximum, we can easily adapt to the individual needs of each of them.

The programme features one training session per day (different distances according to the level) and one swimming pool session (underwater filming). Different cultural activities are also organized so that the participants can get to know the area in their free time.
