The Miramar Swim Raft, an iconic symbol of leisure and fun, is back for the summer.

For decades, the Rosewood Miramar’s raft has been more than just a floating platform.

It has been a centerpiece for families, friends, and communities to come together and create unforgettable moments.

Launched in 1917, the five-star resort has long awaited the raft’s return.

It will open on Saturday (June 1st) through Labor Day weekend for all to enjoy. There will be a lifeguard on duty from 9 am to 5 pm daily.

“More than 100 years ago the raft was anchored in the waters of Miramar Beach,” says Rick Fidel, managing director. “Beloved by resort guests and locals, the raft became an integral part of the ionic Santa Barbara summer. In an age of rapid change, the raft remains an enduring symbol of simplicity and joy.

“Its presence on the water evokes nostalgia for a time when life moved at a slower pace, and summer stretched out endlessly before us.”
