When it comes to getting up close and personal with Mother Ocean, there’s nothing that compares to swimming. Created by ocean52 ambassador and celebrated Open Water Swimmer Miquel Sunyer, Via Braves is a public network of marine and open water routes in the Costa Brava and Barcelona region of Spain dedicated to open water swimming, and also to raise environmental awareness about the threat to our coastline’s marine flora and fauna, due to irresponsible seasonal touristic traffic practices.
