Description

The ultimate, exclusive ‘get-away-from-it-all’ treat for any open water swimmer, expect breath-taking turquoise swimming, panoramic ocean views, and unbeatable relaxation in this truly spectacular Bahamian paradise.

ABOUT THE EXUMAS

Located 35 miles south east of Nassau, The Exumas are the epitome of Bahamian paradise, with stretches of secluded white beaches, washed by swirls of multi hued- turquoise waters and enough wildlife for an instagram safari. This exotic destination is divided into three areas, Great Exuma, Little Exuma (where we will stay) and The Exuma Cays.

Sugar Beach Estate is a spectacular residence on Little Exuma. This oceanfront, seaside paradise boasts three private beaches, panoramic ocean views and a wonderful, laid back Bahamian vibe. With a maximum of 10 SwimQuest guests, we will have this wonderful estate to ourselves. In addition to breezy, spacious accommodation, there are countless outdoor living spaces. Enjoy the sunrise and your morning coffee on the wrap-around deck, laze on the day bed in the breeze for an afternoon nap amongst the beautiful vistas, and between swims, rest your eyes on the azure sea as it changes hue.

IS THIS FOR ME?

During the week, we will complete two swims a day, aside from Wednesday when we will have an afternoon at leisure to rest and recover. Swims will be a mixture of stunning reef and coastal swims. You should be comfortable swimming in open water, however if you wish to swim shorter distances than our itinerary suggests, it’s fine to hop back on board once you’ve had enough. Ideally you should have some open water experience and be able to swim at least one kilometre in the sea. If you’re unsure, please don’t hesitate to contact the office for a chat. This trip is ideal for anyone looking for a pampered week away, with a combination of swimming, wonderful food and time to relax. Throughout the week, you are more than welcome to swim both or just complete one swim a day – it is your holiday. Each swim will be escorted by a main boat and an additional tender that will have ample room for anyone wishing to watch or simply soak up some sun.
