Swim Camp Costa Azahar + Oceanman
13 - 15 May 2022
17ºC - 20ºC (63ºF - 68ºF)
What you'll do
Dive in and explore the pretty southern coast of one of the quietest pueblos in the Valencian Community with us on a fun swimming getaway. This short escape swimming holiday in Costa Azahar is the perfect opportunity to take part in some spectacular swims in the warm waters of the Mediterranean, where you’ll also enjoy the comfort of the 4-star Hotel Intur Orange, giving you an incredible long weekend on and off the water.
The southeast coast of Benicàssim and Oropesa is dotted with beautiful coves, bays and inlets which offer up some great swims. This stretch of coastline forms part of the Via Verde Natural Park, which we’ll have the pleasure of swimming with the Sierra del Desert de les Palmes as a backdrop. From impressive waterside cliffs to secluded beaches, there is no shortage of beautiful sights to see, both above and below the water.
With an average daily air temperature of 22°C in May and water temperatures around 20°C at this time of year, Costa Azahar is the perfect location for a little early season open water swimming. Combine this with the excellent facilities of the Hotel Intur Orange including large bedrooms, complimentary access to the gym and 25m swimming pool, 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 Costa Azahar, an emblematic event in the region, with distances of 2k, 5k and 10k.
Arrive in Costa Azahar
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 Benicàssim and Oropesa
In the morning we will join a swim tour of the race course, learning the importance of which route to follow during the swim. Departing from Oropesa, we will also have the opportunity to swim in the crystalline and warm waters of the region, which will accompany the entire Via Verde natural park.
In the afternoon we head to the race village of the Oceanman Costa Azahar 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.
Oceanman Costa Azahar
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 1.00pm, giving us time to catch an evening flight or stay on to enjoy the hospitality of Benicàssim.
