This year almost 200 swimmers, including international teams, have signed up to take part in the Costa Adeje bay swims taking place this Saturday, May14th. There are two distances, 1,300 metres and 7.500 metres, and the event is organised by the Adeje sports department and Anima2.

There are two distinct set off points. For the longer race swimmers enter the water at the Playa de Ajabo in Callao Salvaje at 9am, for the shorter distance they will start at Playa del Duque, at 11am, with both races finishing at Playa Fañabe.

This is the fourth year of the bay swim which is now considered one of the best tests for open sea swimmers in the Canary Islands with a linear swimming challenge of almost 8 kilometres. The Adeje councillor for sport, Adolfo Alonso Ferrera said “our main challenge is to promote healthy leisure pursuits and at the same time encouraging people to visit Costa Adeje and get to know the zone from a different perspective.

“This is a sport with many followers and we are delighted to welcome visiting athletes who will also help us in promoting what we have to offer here,” he said. One of the visiting clubs, the Phoenix Masters Swim Club from Dublin, met before the race with Adolfo and congratulated him and those behind the organisation of the event.
