Looking for a place to get away and meet other couples on a swinger’s only holiday?
Swinging can be a lot of fun in your local clubs and network but nothing beats a holiday get together with more than 300 other lifestylers. SDC, an online dating company for swingers, also specialises in organising exclusive and luxurious resort takeovers in order for their members to enjoy a clothing-optional break with plenty of opportunities for group play, hook-ups and more. From European resort destinations to exotic cruises and Caribbean breaks, there’s plenty of holidays to choose from to enjoy clothing-optional breaks, play parties and networking.
In this feature, we’ll take a closer look at the next lifestyle gathering for SDC members on the island of Crete in May 2020 as well as find out more about SDC and what other swinger’s holidays they can offer.
Who Are SDC?
Established in 1999, the Swinger’s Dating Club (or, SDC) is one of the world’s largest online dating and hook-up communities for members of the lifestyle. The site itself has more than three million members worldwide and is a leading platform for ways to network with other swingers.
As well as offering a social way to connect online and in person, the company also hosts many community events including speed dating, public and private parties and, more recently, travel opportunities.
Each event is meticulously planned by the SDC team to ensure that members experience a private lifestyle holiday shared only with other swingers. Holiday destinations and gatherings include cruises and hotel stays in Mexico, Croatia, Italy, Ibiza and France.
Their next event for 2020 will be on the Greek island of Crete in a five-night luxury getaway break.
Swinging in Crete 2020
The island of Crete is the largest and most populous Greek island and enjoys a gorgeous climate, stunning views and access to some amazing fresh local cuisine and tempting treats. It’s an ideal location for any holiday and SDC has chosen a secluded spot with a laid-back and welcoming local town replete with taverns, shops and cafes. By day it oozes a lazy charm but by night it is an elegant spot to enjoy some welcoming Greek hospitality.
However, few people will want to escape the hideaway holiday on offer by SDC at their 2020 get-together.
The venue itself is a private, all-inclusive luxury resort with incredible beach locations, three separate, heated swimming pools and a full itinerary of entertainment planned.
Also included on site are multiple bars, rooftop restaurant and a world-class spa. Views from the resort look out over the crystalline waters of the Mediterranean Sea and take in the white sands of the beach below.
There is also a nightclub on site that the SDC team has taken special care to organise and decorate with style and which offers a great opportunity to meet and hook up with other couples to flirt the night away with.
The whole resort will be booked out exclusively to SDC members only and in all there will be around 350 other lifestylers to enjoy the companionable pleasures of.
When is the SDC Swinging in Crete Get Together?
The next European lifestyle get together planned for this year will be held over five days between 7th May 2020 and 12th May 2020.
