Your itinerary

Day 1

Sunet Swim in Sesimbra

To the taste of the sunset

After arrival to Sesimbra, we will swim at sunset.

At this time, fishermen often catch fish on the beach, which makes swimming incredible, surrounded by seagulls.


The day will end with a delicious dinner where you can meet your fellow travelers.

Day 2

Swim through arches and sea caves

This will be the first day of pure adventure. 


We will start by taking a walk to a paradisiacal beach. Then we will swim in a sea full of marine life and unique rock formations.

At the end of the day, we head to Castle of Sesimbra to watch the beautiful view of the village.

Day 3

The most beautiful beach in Europe

After a short walk, we will enter a small bay, off the marina of Sesimbra, with destination to Praia da Ribeira do Cavalo.

From there, you will be accompanied by an incredibly beautiful route, where you will find beaches, rocks, clear and blue water, shoals of fish and a majestic cave.

Day 4


A hidden treasure

Feel like a true explorer in the exuberance of the Serra da Arrábida Natural Park.


In the water we will embrace an island that can be seen from a mile away.


After a lunch in Setúbal, we will visit some abandoned sites with the best views of the area.

Day 5


To the conquest of Cabo de Ares

A session of swimming along 5km through the coves of the coast of Sesimbra.


After conquering Cabo de Ares, we will have lunch in a typical restaurant, where you will taste some of the region’s delicacies.


Then we’ll watch the best sunset of Sesimbra from Cabo Espichel.

Day 6


The farewell

A few hours from the end of our adventure, we will say goodbye to the Atlantic Ocean, with another morning sea swim.

After one last toast, we’ll pack our bags and go back to Lisbon.

Amaya Ugalde, Spain - 2019



I think I am having " Saudade" since the Sesimbra swim camp. "Saudade" is a Portuguese word meaning absence, a strong feeling of missing someone or something. What do I miss? A long list:

I miss swimming in a stunning unspoiled ocean. Sesimbra is a top open water destination if you want to experience safe swimming in nature at its best: unpolluted waters, spectacular cliffs and caves, marine life and birds. Really breathtaking and diverse spots to swim and explore at the same time. It is much more than just swimming.

Second. I miss the Swim Together team, André, Filipe, Bernardo and Mario. They are experienced, truly passionate swimmers and helpful at any time. At the same time they stay humble, kind and warm in that very unique Portuguese way. A perfect balance. I can not think of a better company than them to feel at home and at ease.

Third. The flexible schedule that André offers to meet every swimmer´s needs. A tailored swim camp to make the most of it.

Fourth: Outstanding food. No need to elaborate about the excellent Portuguese cuisine. Everything tastes great there.

And above all I miss the magic moments shared swimming together, laughing together and just enjoying together.

For these and many other reasons I´m more than willing to go to the river swim camp soon. Take me back again André!!!

This is the best SwimCamp I’ve ever been to. Andre gave us the best experience. The swim spots were out of this world. The accommodations were comfortable and the food so delicious. On some occasions he even cook home made Portugal soul foods for us. He took so many pictures of us. And after swimming for the whole day, he brought us to places that regular tourist never go to. I think the most important thing is Andre and Filipe really have a big heart. I don’t know how to describe it better. Please try and feel for yourself.
