While I much prefer cooler climes, I'd much rather swim in the Caribbean. The Irish waters during winter aren't too hospitable. Much more an act of contrition than a pleasant experience. The pleasure only comes from warming up and realising that one's heart is still strong enough to take the shock.
Mind you, I watched an old codger (at least 80+ years old) many, many moons ago strip down to the nip (strange sight in a big city) and jump off the forty foot during winter.
He was holding the family jewels as he jumped. I'd say they devalued somewhat when he hit the water - but enough of that.
