What you'll do

We love to swim in the sea which has incredibly clear water in Sugary and Castle Cove. These spectacular small beaches are bordered by angular slate cliffs. We head out into the bay, keeping to our left until we see a gap in the rocks. This leads into a spectacular channel, linking through to Castle Cove when the sea is calm. The rocks tower up either side, and there is a small oak tree leaning overhead. The play of light on the rock walls is entrancing, and when the water is calm and clear you may see fish, spider crabs and starfish. We emerge at Castle Cove where the dramatic atmosphere continues, as the castle overshadows the scene. We swim here almost every day when the weather is warm and try to swim at least once a week even through the winter. Sea swimming makes us feel alive and vital all day and we would love to take our guests to enjoy this magical experience. They have to be prepared to get up early though as the best time is early in the morning!

Learn more about Jojo

Jojo

We adore sea swimming all year round depending on conditions. We are competent swimmers and love to gently swim enjoying our surroundings. We are NOT competitive or serious wild water swimmers. We have been sea swimming locally for the last 5 years and enjoy meeting up with the 'regulars' who swim here too. We call ourselves the 'Castle Covers' and our oldest member is 81 years old and still loving it!

Where you'll be

We start by having a walk up through Gallants Bower and along the coast towards Little Dartmouth. After warming up nicely for 45 minutes, we're ready for our sea swim in Castle and Sugary Coves.

Guest safety

Outdoor activities carry risks, and you may be exposed to dangerous situations as part of this experience. Make sure you can participate safely given your abilities and the conditions (such as location, weather, and equipment).

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 1 guest ages 18 and up can attend. Guests must be able to swim confidently and swim at their own risk.

More tips

If you want to swim with us, you need to be up early because that's the best time of day and we'll have the cove to ourselves! We only swim if the weather is good and the sea is calm.
