What you'll do
This short swimming escape in Spain boasts perfect turquoise seas, great underwater visibility and imposing sheer cliffs, allowing you to discover the best swimming the south of the Mediterranean has to offer. With the chance to explore the Benidorm Island and swim a substantial part of the Sierra Helada Natural Park, come and discover one of the most southern points of Europe with us. Our base for the trip is the comfortable 4-star H10 Porto Poniente Hotel, giving you an incredible long weekend on and off the water.
Benidorm is located on the so-called Costa Blanca (White Coast) and its main source of wealth is tourism. In fact, its magnificent beaches and large hotel capacity have made this city one of the most important tourist centers in the Mediterranean and even in Europe. It should be noted that currently the tallest hotel in the world is located on Poniente Beach.
With an average daily air temperature of 28°C in October and water temperatures around 22°C at this time of year, Benidorm is the perfect location for a early season open water swimming. Combine this with the excellent facilities of the H10 Porto Poniente Hotel including large bedrooms, complimentary access to the spa with swimming pool and gym, plus a choice of restaurants around the hotel and you have a fantastic way to hold on to the spring months for just a little longer.
This short escape will end with the participation in the Oceanman Benidorm, an emblematic event in the region, with distances of 1.5k, 5k and 10k.
Arrive in Benidorm
After checking in to your hotel, you’ll have the chance to meet up with your SwimTogether guides and fellow swimmers in the evening for an informal catch-up to kick off your trip.
To avoid long waiting times at race registration tomorrow, we would highly recommend taking advantage of Early Race Registration and registering today, for those arriving early and who have free time.
Visit Benidorm and the Sierra Helada Natural Park
In the morning we will join a swim tour, swimming in one of the most beautiful places on the Costa Blanca. Departing from Cala Tío Ximo Beach, we will have the opportunity to swim in the crystalline and warm waters of the region, which will accompany the entire the Sierra Helada natural park.
In the afternoon we head to the race village of the Oceanman Benidorm to complete the local registration. Please note that the race registration is compulsory. Failure to attend this will mean you will be unable to enter the swim. During race registration, all competitors will be given their swim hats, badges and timing chips in preparation for the swim.
After an early breakfast and check-out from our hotel, it’s time for the main event! All swimmers meet at the Hotel ready for the bus transfer that take us to the race start point. Please note that the bus departure time differs according to the race distance.
The race and awards ceremony is expected to finish by 1.30pm, giving us time to catch an evening flight or stay on to enjoy the hospitality of Benidorm.
