“ hello! My name is Nicola, I have been a swimming teacher for 6 years and lover of all things water my whole life. I was very fortunate to grow up in Portugal with access to reservoirs and beautiful beaches in the sunshine.
I now live in Brighton u.k.
My other hobbies include drawing, reading and adventuring to new countries.
I am also excited to be sharing the hidden gem that is Portugal’s spectacular swim spots in a Brand new all inclusive EXCLUSIVE course introducing swimmers looking to take that step into the world of open water swimming, with guided sessions in the morning in a private lake to venturing to different locations in the afternoon. All whilst getting the chance to make new friends, learn new skills and enjoy the splendour of the retreat location. “
