Feel alive with a Sunrise Dip

Awaken your whole body, mind, and soul with a sunrise swim in the sea at Walton On-the-Naze, Essex.  Join us for an early morning sunrise dip followed by hot drinks and a spectacular pancake & maple syrup breakfast at The Red Beach Hut. This is an experience for the memory books.

Cold water swimming offers so many mood-boosting benefits. It’s amazing for your mental health. We can get so caught up in the busyness of our lives or caught up in the blows that life has dealt us that we forget to take care of ourselves. These swims will help you take time for yourself. No matter what is happening in your life, use this time for you.

  • Connect with your heart and others
  • Feel joy in the moment
  • Smile and laugh out loud
  • Enjoy a short mindfulness practice
  • Feel the cold water rejuvenate your body, mind and soul

You may be pleasantly surprised about what you find inside yourself, and your ability to feel happy at any moment. And you just might make some new friends too. Book your ticket.  ❤️

Book Your Ticket

We practice mindfulness while going into the water, slowly. We also do a mindful practice in the water.

Mindfulness enables us to be in the present moment – not in our head fretting over the past – not worrying about something that might happen in the future.

Mindfulness brings us into the present moment, where our head is clear and calm. You’ll learn how to do this practice anytime, anywhere, calming your anxious mind.

The benefits of cold water swimming are well documented. You can read more about how cold water swimming helps mental wellness in this article.

The sunrise swims take year round at sunrise. These are ticketed events and can book your ticket on this page. Dates and times will vary in order to swim when the tide is appropriate for swimming!

At sunrise!

We will enjoy a cold water dip in the sea just by the beach hut. We only stay in for a maximum of 10- 30 minutes, depending on the water temperature and time of year. You can just dip your toes in the first time or watch. No pressure. Just being there is fun and helps you feel alive just taking in the sunrise.

The swims are suited to everyone. It’s about taking in the moment, not being an experienced swimmer. I just float!  You can also part and learn more about the practice so you can do more open water swimming. You might just get hooked.

After our swim, we will retreat to The Red Beach Hut, a cosy base to come back to, ready with hot drinks, and a delicious breakfast to refuel our bodies after the swim. Sit, relax and enjoy a wonderful view. ❤️

We serve delicious, warm Canadian pancakes with maple syrup, a selection of fresh fruit, eggs, bacon, orange juice, tea, coffee and hot chocolate.

We do our best to cater to all dietary requirements and offer oat milk and gluten free pancakes. Please let us know your dietary requirements and food allergies at the time of booking.

We have a supply of flotation devices, thermal water socks and thermal gloves which you can use . Please let us know on your booking form if you would like to borrow some.

Wetsuits are recommended between November – April as temperatures drop. We do not have a supply of suits to borrow (not yet).
