The 2024 Chestnut Appeal Burgh Island Swim will take place on Sunday 28th July with a swim time of 11am
Burgh Island is an iconic South Devon landmark, located opposite Bigbury-on-Sea beach. The island is accessible at low tide by a strip of sand which at high tide is completely covered, leaving a ride on the unique sea tractor as the only means of access. As well as the sea tractor the island is famed for its links to Agatha Christie, the art-deco inspired Burgh Island Hotel and as well as a onetime haunt for pirates and smugglers. Burgh Island Hotel
The Burgh Island swim is suitable for those who can swim a mile in the pool and have experience of Open Water Swimming and be confident swimming in various sea conditions.
Registration for the swim is £30. Your entry fee covers the cost of organising the event, but it’s the money you raise that helps Prostate Cancer patients and their families across Devon and Cornwall.
