Polar Bear Swim 2015
Boxing Day in Gibraltar is traditionally celebrated by some by participating in an extremely successful Polar Bear Swim. Thanks to the normally mild climate, this swim is usually carried out by the more dedicated and brave individuals. The swim which is normally held at Catalan Bay, Camp Bay and Eastern Beach, also raises money for different charities. Those who brave the cold water are treated to mince pies and brandy along with the annual Polar Bear certificate.
