Tropic Breeze is offering an exclusive holiday to the charming island of Nevis where visitors can work on their swimming technique in the warm waters of the Caribbean…

A week-long swim retreat will run from 21 – 28 March 2018 at Nisbet Plantation Beach Club, allowing participants to learn how to become a more efficient swimmer with the help of Olympic swimmers. The retreat is perfect for swimmers of all abilities, from beginners who wish to learn how to swim front crawl to those who are more experienced and are looking to hone their skills in open water swimming.

The swim retreat is run by Keri-anne Payne, an Olympic silver medallist in open water swimming, and her husband David Carry who has also represented Great Britain in the Olympics in freestyle swimming events. Included in the excellent value package are 5 hours of group swimming lessons in the pool and in the sea, a one-to-one lesson, two talks focusing on nutrition and planning, optional beach workouts, a sea swim safari, a welcome dinner, a pre/post retreat call with Keri-anne and a goodie bag.

Participants in the swimming retreat stay for 7 nights at the Nisbet Plantation Beach Club, an elegant hotel in an idyllic location with outstanding service.

The retreat coincides with the Nevis to St Kitts cross-channel swim. Taking place on Sunday 25 March 2018, this is an excellent challenge for open water swimmers, covering a distance of 2.5 miles. While some of the world's best open water swimmers have taken part in the race, an 'assisted' category also allows less confident swimmers to take part with a snorkel and flippers.
