WORDS BY ASHLEY NORRIS & SADIE HALE
It’s not difficult to understand the allure of secluded outdoor swimming. Stretching out in the cool water of a river, lake or sea can feel wonderfully liberating – especially on warm summer days.
Luckily there are plenty of places to escape the crowds while still being within reach of a pub lunch – you just have to know where to look. We’ve compiled a list of some of the best places across the islands to enjoy aquatics, alfresco style. Don’t forget though. It is always a good idea to swim with company, and don’t dive in straight after you have polished off your picnic.
