Keep the beach clean-
Think environment!

The beautiful sands of Carolina in Puerto Rico welcomes the Swatch-FIVB World Tour back after a eight year absence when the men’s circuit arrives in town on June 9.

Formerly known as the ‘World Series’ the Swatch-FIVB World Tour was held in beautiful Puerto Rico in 1994, ’95 and ’96 with the exotic city of Carolina playing host to both the men and women’s Beach Volleyball circuits.

With an abundance of beautiful beaches, Carolina, which is only minutes from Puerto Rico’s capital San Juan, will undoubtedly prove a fine host once again and there is certain to be some excellent Beach Volleyball action on display with a total prize package of $180,000 on offer.

Carolina, referred to as Tierra de Gigantes (Land of Giants) because the tallest occupant who resided there, one Felipe Birriel, was a colossal 239 cm tall, is a rapidly growing city and with a population of 186,000 it is of huge importance to Puerto Rico in terms of tourism. With 272 miles of coastline, Carolina offers the visitor plenty of activities such as boating, fishing, snorkeling, and scuba diving.

Images of colourful coral reef, swaying palm trees, relaxing sailing trips and cavernous caves abound in Carolina, it is truly a dream location and one that is perfect for the men’s Beach Volleyball stars of today to display their wares.
