Saundersfoot makes top 10 list for Xmas & New Year swims

Written by Anita Lee on

Saundersfoot has made a top 10 list for Christmas and New Year’s Day swims in the UK.

People staying in holiday cottages around Saundersfoot over the festive period will be able to take part or watch thousands run into the sea on New Year’s Day.

The annual event has now made the Daily Star’s top 10 Christmas and New Year’s Day swims. The New Year’s Day dip at Saundersfoot started out with just 17 people, but last year nearly 2,000 people took part in the spectacle and raised more than £400,000 for their chosen charities.

Organisers of the Saundersfoot swim are expecting the event to be even bigger and better this year, as it will be the events 30th birthday.

The 2013 swim, which is in aid of charity, will again see thousands turn out in fancy dress. Proceedings will start at 12.30pm on Saundersfoot Beach.
