Five Stars

“This was our 3rd year at BEST Fest & for the 3rd time it surpassed all our expectations! We had a fantastic week as a family, enjoying the sun & the beaches, with great company whilst sharing out the open water swims between us. Each race/challenge was different & the sea was beautifully clear with lots of fish & a gorgeous sea bed to watch as we swam. Some conditions were more challenging than others but that added to the fun! BESTfest & Family Swim Holidays at the BEST Centre have created the perfect combination for a family that love swimming. An incredible experience to watch & swim with elite swimmers too. Special memories have been created here that we will cherish forever. Sad to leave friends but looking forward to next year’s BESTfest already!” Nils-Christian Olsson
