You certainly don’t need us to tell you that there’s something extra romantic about being abroad with your partner. In fact, over a third of couples get engaged while on holiday! Whether you’re a brand new couple or you’ve been together for years and years, going on holiday together is a great way to strengthen your bond and try something new and exciting together.
Whilst a traditional beach holiday or city break makes for a satisfactory trip abroad, more and more couples are looking to take part in experience holidays with unique activities they can do together. We here at The Big Blue Swim cater for couples from all over the world and these are our top three reasons why we think all couples should go on an open water swimming holiday at least once in their lifetime!
One of the biggest causes of conflict on holiday comes from the stress of figuring out what to do. Many couples travel with a view to do whatever they feel on the day whilst they’re abroad. Whilst that sounds like fun in theory, this often leads to arguments about which activities take priority and how to pack the most activity into one day. Couples argue about doing too much or too little on holiday and this can turn a romantic getaway into days of bickering and indecision.
A Big Blue Swim holiday eliminates all of these issues. Our holidays are perfectly structured to give our guests lots of open water activity, with an average of two to three hours of swimming each day with, and enough time to rest on board our traditional wooden boat and at any of the scenic destinations we stop off at along the way. With a delicious breakfast on offer every morning and a range of exciting aquatic activities - like an individual under water video and a specialised swimming stroke analysis - you’ll have plenty to do each day but have enough free time to explore Greece at your own leisure.
Our open water swimming holidays have been the source of many lifelong friendships over the years. On the very first day of your Big Blue Swim holiday, our coaches will analyse your individual swimming ability and group you with swimmers of a similar level so you’re never struggling to match pace. This gives our guests the opportunity to get to know their fellow swimmers both in and out of the water and many of our guests like to explore local points of interest in their free time with their new friends. These friendships often last even longer than the span of your swimming holiday, with many couples connecting over social media and coordinating future holidays or swimming related activities for years to come!
Greece is a wonderful country with a rich history and plenty of sights to see. You’ll have a wonderful time there whatever style of holiday you choose but our visitors often describe Big Blue Swim holidays as a whole new way of seeing Greece. Our holidays take you on a unique tour of the country’s coastlines and, depending on which of our four destinations you choose to visit, gives you a taste of several one-of-a-kind features. Whether you’re enjoying our expansive 12 island Lefkada trip or taking part in our volcanic swim in Santorini, you’ll see parts of Greece you’d never come across on a regular holiday.
There’s still plenty of time left to book your very own Big Blue Swim Holiday this year and we welcome couples of all ages and walks of life. You don’t have to be an Olympic level swimmer to enjoy a holiday with The Big Blue Swim, all we ask is that you’re comfortable in the water.
