Bold & Beautiful


B&B is open to everyone so if you can swim 1.5km in the ocean why not come on down tomorrow and have a swim with us?

‘Bold & Beautiful’ is an informal group that meets out the front of Manly Life Saving Club and swims at 7 am, 7 days a week from Manly to Shelly Beach and back. A 750m swim each way, hence a 1.5km swim return!

We all wear hot pink ‘Bold & Beautiful’ swim caps. The ‘Bold & Beautiful’ head out from Manly, gather at the point, waiting for the “Let’s Go” before venturing over to Shelly Beach where we wait for the last swimmer, wait for the “Let’s Go”, then depart for our return trip.

Please arrive by 6.40 am on the morning of your first swim so we have time to sign you up, welcome you, take your photo and give you a pink cap. Our latex caps are given to you complimentary, courtesy of Manly Paradise Apartments. If you would like a silicon cap, however, they are $15.

Please note that it is not a formal event and we do not have any water safety. Everyone swims at their own risk at all times. So please ensure you only swim in conditions that you are confident in.

The swim is 750m each way, hence 1500m return.

We don’t have a secure lock-up area for belongings, so please bring the minimum with you.

You can always find a group of ‘Bold & Beautiful’ re-energising at a local cafe for coffee after the swim.
