Tenby Boxing Day Swim started in 1970 and has snowballed into Tenby’s main Christmas attraction, attracting around 600 swimmers - all swimming for charity - and thousands of onlookers each year, whatever the weather. A roaring bonfire greets the emerging swimmers and every one receives a medal for their bravery. As the swim has gone from strength to strength each year, the event has grown with canoes, raft racing and much more before the great immersion at 11.30am.
