TAFATAFA – 2km / 4km
We are back at Tafatafa. We were last here two years ago (2013). The early morning swim start will be much better this time too (8am). Following the swim, there is a school visit followed by a picnic lunch on the beach. It’s a beach day today at this beautiful location. Side tours will leave from here, while the rest of us will laze by the Fales and the white sandy shores of Tafatafa. For safety reasons, the 4km course is a Pt to Pt, and 2km is an out and back swim.
Course – the triangle is 4kms, the Shorter swim will be within this course, and will start 30mins after the long Swim. The lagoon is crystal clear, with deep blue parts as in the map. Tafatafa is 38kms from Apia, across the island on the South coast.
