Coral Reef Swim

St. Croix

The competition: Perhaps not as challenging as trekking across the Norwegian Forges or running through the Amazon Rainforest, but the beauty of the Coral Reef Swim makes it just as rewarding.

The five-mile race begins on Buck Island, which is surrounding by a stunning colourful coral reef, and continues across the channel and along the coast of St Croix. The swim concludes at Mermaid beach, where a palm-fringed finishing line greets swimmers.

The prize: Live music and tropical cocktails await the finishing swimmers, and after the last swimmer emerges the party is taken to the Terrace restaurant for a past-race banquet of fresh local cuisine.

The cost: $130

How to get there: Perfect for anyone discover the US Virgin Islands on a superyacht, simply anchor off Buck Island and tender to shore.
