This swimming camp training centre was built in 2005 and contains both a 50m and 25m pool, thus being unique to the island of Madeira. It is of superb condition and ideal for all disciplines within swimming making it an ideal venue for swimming camp preparations. Madeira is a Portuguese Island about 580 km from the coast of Africa, 861 km from Lisbon.

With daily flights from most European cities, Funchal is easily accessible with a relatively short flying time. Although the swimming complex does not include accommodation on site, there are several 3* and 4* hotels only 5 mins shuttle distance away in the Funchal area.

▼ Location

The Swimming Centre is located 1 km north of the centre of Funchal, on the island of Madeira. Funchal is an absolutely unique area as the amphitheatre of the city begins at the harbour and rises almost 1200m high on gentle slopes. This provides a natural shelter, the best harbour and the best climate. Funchal airport is approximately 15kms away to the east.

▼ Climate

Thanks to the excellent geographical location and mountainous relief, Madeira has surprisingly balmy weather, with moderate humidity and pleasant average temperatures of 25ºC in the summer and 17ºC in the winter. The sea temperature is also very mild, thanks to the influence of the warm Gulf Stream, averaging 22ºC in the summer and 18ºC in the winter.

▼ Entertainment

There is plenty to do of an evening in the island capital, with theatres, cinemas and nightclubs, and folk dancing displays almost every night. Throughout the year, there are cultural, entertainment and sports events all over the island and they not only attract the local population but also make holidays unforgettable. The main events are the traditional Carnival, Flower Festival, Wine Festival and New Year celebrations and the more recent Atlantic Festival.
