The Swim To The Edge Series – The Abereiddy Swim routes

The Blue Monster

This is truly a tough swim and should only be attempted by competent sea swimmers.

Swimmers will head off from Abereiddy Beach (please note that this swim has the potential of being a surf entrance into the water) and then closely hug the southern cliffs of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path.

After approximately 1 mile, swimmers will reach the secluded Bay of Aber Pwll before turning back. The final section of the route takes swimmers into the famous Blue Lagoon. There may be swell as you attempt to enter the Lagoon.

The Blue Lagoon

This is again a tough challenge but easier than its Monster counterpart.

The course starts on Abereiddy Beach and heads out into the Bay before turning right and heading to the entrance of the iconic Blue Lagoon. Swimmers will then head into the beach and receive their well deserved prize.
