If sea swims are what you're after, Burgh Island and Durdle Door offer some of the most stunning landscapes on the South coast of England and finally we have our Cornwall and The Isles of Scilly adventure, where we will explore the most South-Western parts of the country with a momentous crossing to the Isles of Scilly completed during the week.
