For eight years, the Mojacar Forum has been enticing brave folk to join in the fun.

The money raised by the event is donated to Forum’s chosen charity, the Paws-Patas Animal Charity in Mojacar.

Not only has the event been growing year after year it has now consolidated itself as part of Mojacaran culture.

The beach just opposite the Best Indalo Hotel is the meeting point. Registration begins at 11.00.AM, ready for the midday dip.

Fancy dress is always welcomed as is the brandy, wine and treats that flow at the afterparty.

With over 22,000 members, the Forum, which can be found on Facebook is for people who love Spain and Mojacar and offers a wealth of information on Mojacar. For more information CLICK HERE or head to:

The charity chosen by the Mojacar Forum, Paws-Patas has been rehoming abandoned cats and dogs in and around Mojacar since 1989 and is always in need of more hands and more funds! The charity needs to raise €9,500 every month simply to cover basic running costs and vet bills.
