SWIMMING HOLIDAY CROATIA


Swimming holiday on the southern tip of Istria

After successful editions in previous years, we will again organize three one-week swimming holidays in 2022 in the same wonderful 4-star hotel, directly on the Adriatic Sea, in Istria. Are you coming?

Includes:

  • Swim in Balance swimming courses of your choice
  • a wonderful boat trip/snorkel/open water swimming excursion in the middle of the week
  • 7 nights stay in a 4-star hotel based on half board (breakfast and dinner)

Optional:
Open water swimming workshop, extra back crawl course, private swimming lessons, wellness, excursions, bike rental, tennis, etc.

Are you interested? Let us know.

During this holiday you will receive two hours a day Shaw Method swimming lessons for one week, with a rest day in the middle of the week. You can choose two courses from: crawl level 1crawl level 2breast stroke of butterfly. In a 25 meter indoor pool filled with filtered seawater, right by the sea!

Where is it?

The swimming holiday takes place in the Park Plaza hotel 'Belvedere' in Medulin, near the city of Pula, in the extreme southern tip of Istria. The hotel is 200 meters from the sea (snorkeling!) and has two outdoor pools in addition to the indoor pool. Please note that in the preseason the outdoor pools are still very fresh. We bring wetsuits for the sea. In the high and late season this is not necessary, then the sea is well warmed up. From Pula airport it is a 15 minute taxi ride. There are direct flights from Amsterdam-Pula and Rotterdam-Pula. You can also fly to Venice and take the ferry to Pula in 3 hours, a beautiful trip.

How intensive is the program?

Depending on your own wishes, you can make your program as intensive as you want, or enjoy snorkeling and lazing on the beach. The holiday is very suitable for people who participate individually. You can also bring family or friends. They don't necessarily have to participate in the swimming activities, there are many other fun things to do. You can book their stay (including half board and use of the swimming pools) through us at a discount and enjoy a holiday together.

The Shaw Method

Swim in Balance teaches based on the Shaw Method. The aim is to learn a beautiful swimming stroke, so that you can enjoy swimming in a way that is extra healthy for the back, neck and shoulders. Targeted at long distance swimming and therefore very suitable for triathlon swimmers† But: speed alone is not our highest goal. Enjoying swimming and efficient technique are paramount. The groups also consist of a maximum of 8 participants per course during this holiday and the teachers are with you in the water.

Reviews

“Very nice week in a nice environment to learn the Shaw method.”

- Martin (swimming holiday May 2022)

“If like me you thought you could never learn to crawl, and if you want to learn to get more impact (not just in the pool) with less force, then this is a course to do. Accessible, nice people, interesting method, wonderful location and real results.”

- Cilia (swimming holiday May 2022)

“I wholeheartedly recommend Swim in Balance swimming holidays. Learning a new stroke really well, with all the individual guidance that every participant needs, is guaranteed to succeed here. In addition, I learned a lot about the Alexander Technique, on which Swim in Balance bases its swimming method – also super valuable for other sports, making music and life in general. Even though we worked hard, it really felt like a holiday – great to hit the sauna after a swim! I wish Swim in Balance many more happy participants!”

- Alix (swimming holiday May 2022)
