Join us on a swimming holiday!

Swimming Women began in 2013 and provides a safe space for women who love water to laugh and swim together. After coaching more than 1500 women in Margaret River to swim, we realised that women don’t just want to swim at home. They want to combine a holiday with swimming and enjoy an experience that mixes fun, adventure, yummy food and laughter, with enough space to take time out, relax and rejuvenate.

In 2017 we delivered our first holiday to Bali and have not looked back, taking ladies to Sydney, Perth, Rottnest Island and Indonesia.

You don’t have to be an existing Swimming Woman to come on a Swimming Women holiday, you simply have to enjoy swimming, want to explore new places and share the experience.

We choose our locations based on places we love, and places we know to ensure we create a memorable experience for our guests. Our many repeat customers love that they can turn up, switch off from the outside world and be taken care of.

Your Guides


Founder of Swimming Women, Charlotte O’Beirne, leads each of our swim holidays sharing her love for life, passion for the water and compassion for her swimmers.

A Margaret River local for more than 20 years she has swum solo to Rottnest Island on multiple occasions and, aside from her labradoodle, she loves nothing more than sitting in the sun post dip sharing coffee and cake.

Rish lives in Yallingup with her family and her favourite place to swim is Yallingup Lagoon. She loves sharing her passion for learning with her swimmers and is ridiculously encouraging. Rish swam solo to Rottnest Island in 2018 struggling with crazy seasickness yet was the only one smiling on a cruise of 25 to see the Orcas in a very rough Southern Ocean! She still can’t work that out!

Kristy left her former life as an environmental lawyer and embraced her love of movement and the connection of the mind and body. She loves helping people connect to water and is a very patient teacher. With a super bendy yoga past, one of her favourite things to do now is is riding her longboard, anywhere!


Samara has a passion for the places we swim and the things we swim with having received degrees in marine science, and conservation and wildlife biology. She is happiest being on or near water and it doesn’t really matter if that means laying on the beach, dipping or swimming a really long way. Samara enjoys encouraging women and helping them understand they can enjoy water regardless of their speed.
