      About this trip

       

      A SWIMMING HOLIDAY IN THE BAHAMAS

      This trip is the ultimate, exclusive ‘get-away-from-it-all' treat for any open water swimmer. We have designed this trip carefully to ensure we provide you with the perfect combination of activity and relaxation. Based at Sugar Beach Private Estate on the pristine, remote island of Little Exuma, expect breathtaking turquoise swimming, panoramic ocean views, and unbeatable relaxation in this truly spectacular Bahamian paradise. 



      About 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.


       

      About Sugar Beach Estate

      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.

      There are various room types available to you - please indicate your preference on your booking form. If your preference isn’t available, we will be in touch with you to arrange an alternative room.

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.
