Itacare, Southern Bahia in Brazil is one of the top destinations for surfers and tourists from around the world with miles of white-sand beaches and turquoise water. Located where the rainforest and the Atlantic meet, this beautiful city is known for its lively nightlife, welcoming people, and tranquil nature.
If you stayed around for the last wave of the Henley Swim Festival mile swim, you would have seen Bryan from SwimTayka swimming with his dog a black labrador named Poppy. This is the first time that a dog has completed the Henley Mile and the crowds certainly came out in force to cheer her on.
Did you know we are not just about teaching children to swim? We also spend much of our time teaching them about their local environment through clean water education.
