Upcoming dates: 23 May, 20 June, 18 July, 15 August, 19 September 2024

Swallowcourt will be hosting a Sea Swim at Poldhu Cove followed by a warm welcome and hot drinks at our Poldhu Care Home. This event is open to all so whether you have been thinking about trying sea swimming for a while or if you swim every day, you will be very welcome.

This is a great opportunity to connect with nature, meet new people and ensure our residents remain a part of the local community.

What will I need to bring?

You will need swimwear and a towel, wetsuit boots and gloves are advisable but not essential. Some warm clothes for after the swim to get your body back up to temperature.

Other useful information

There is a car park opposite the beach, and we encourage car sharing as much as possible. We will meet on the beach at 9.15am, aiming to get in the water around 9.30am. How far you go in is entirely up to you, there is no pressure to go further than your ankles or you can dive right in and have a swim around the stunning cove.


Hot drinks will be available free of charge at Poldhu Care Home.


This swim is entirely at your own risk and there may not be a lifeguard on duty. Swallowcourt are not responsible for your safety during the event or for any belongings that you leave on the beach.
