HUUB guide to BEST Fest: The Tour de France of open water swimming

Best Fest

Sponsored by HUUB for the third year, Europe's premier week-long open water swim festival takes place in the crystal clear waters surrounding Colonia St Jordi in Mallorca, between Saturday 26 May and Saturday 2 June 2018. The beautiful Balearic town is famous for the fantastic beaches that lie either side. The island of Cabrera, Spain's first protected nature marine park is a few kilometres away.

BEST Fest comprises eight events over seven days and offers distances between 500m and 10k. With a coached pool and open water clinics included free for entrants and a varied evening social programme, there truly is something for everyone at this fun and friendly event.

The week-long festival showcases some traditional Mallorquin food and drink, ensaimadas, paella, BBQ and sangria all making an appearance. The local restaurants and bars are some of the best in Spain, and for those swimmers making a holiday out of their trip, all of the nearby hotels are within walking distance of the BEST Centre pool and BEST Fest event locations.

Clinics and pool sessions will take place in the world-renowned elite swimming centre, the BEST Centre, which has hosted numerous training camps for Olympic and world champions and is an ideal location for learning top open water tips.
