boxing-day-swim Isle of Wight

Head to Ventnor esplanade for the annual Boxing Day Swim – arrive before 1pm to avoid missing the action

There’s nothing better after the excess of Christmas Day than heading down to the beach to watch (or take part in) a traditional Boxing Day Swim.

This year we have a choice of at least two Boxing Day Swims on the Isle of Wight (if you know of more please share details).

Ventnor swim at 1pm not midday (this year)
