The Exmouth Christmas day swim takes place on Christmas day every year. The event attracts thousands of people with many being brave enough to take the plunge and go for a swim in the waters just of Exmouth beach. If you do not fancy braving the cold there is even a webcam for you to view, the Exmouth Seafront Webcam and Daniel Smith Photography try to attend every year to take pictures and video.

    Hi. Just wondering what the actual time is for the swim to take place is it correct at 11:00am or does the swim happen before this.

    I’m writing a feature for a national women’s magazine on women who go swimming on Christmas day. I’d love to talk to a woman who’s taken part – and is going to take part – in this event. Is there anyone i can talk to who would point me in the right direction? For the magazine I’d need a hardy swimmer between the ages of 40 and 55.
