Mental Health Swims Swanage 2024

🗓️ Monthly swims at Swanage Beach

Join this friendly group for a paddle or swim and chat on Swanage Beach.

It’s a ‘dip not distance’ ethos, with a focus on cold-water swimming and simply getting together and meeting new people being beneficial to mental health.

The monthly Saturday swim is led by a swim host, but it’s very much a peer-support community.

Wear whatever you’re comfortable swimming in. You’re also encouraged to bring along a hot drink, towel and warm clothes to change into, or even a hot water bottle or a changing robe if you have one.

  • Timings – 10am – 11am
  • Location – Meet at the third blue & white shelter at the Ocean Bay end of Shore Road (below the path from Beach Gardens) – look out for a pink pirate flag on the sand
  • Cost – Free
