Traditional New Year’s Day dip in sea taking place in Ferragudo


On Monday (1 January 2018) the traditional New Year’s Day dip in the sea will be taking place on Pintadinho Beach in the Algarve village of Ferragudo. 

The sea water is forecast to be warm, and for those who still find it a bit chilly, a hot chocolate will be waiting for after the refreshing swim.

The annual tradition usually attracts hundreds of New Year swimmers to the area, and starts from 11am.
