Welcome to Swim2Bestival, quite simply the best way to get Bestival on the Isle of Wight. Swim2Bestival is a charity event that takes place the day before the festival begins and allows festival goers crazy enough to take on the challenge the opportunity to don their Speedos in a ‘man-against-the-elements’ test of strength and stamina, swimming the 1.3 mile stretch of cold and choppy water that is the Solent.

However, don’t take our word for it, watch the video below and let Miguel Mantovani tell you a little more about the Swim2Bestival debut in 2007...
