There's a secret spot in the province that's the perfect summer oasis. It's well hidden though, and you'll want to try and find it at least once in your life. This B.C. swimming hole is the perfect spot to beat the heat during those sweltering summer days and we can't stop dreaming about jumping into that clear water.\nThere is something more relaxing about swimming in a natural pool. Not only is it chlorine-free, but also there are way fewer people than at the neighbourhood pool.\nWe love how they feel like a piece of paradise. You can float in the water and enjoy the view of the trees all around you.\nOne swimming spot you'll need to visit at least once in your life is Barber's Hole on Vancouver Island. Many locals don't even realize this refreshing spot exists just two and a half hours from Victoria.\nIt's in Nymph Falls Nature Park, an area known for a vast forest along the Puntledge River. To cool off in the water, you have two options.\nYou can either pick to park at the parking lot only a few feet away or the main lot in the park. If you choose the second option, you can follow a 2.6-kilometre Nymph Falls Trail that's breathtaking.\nView this post on Instagram A post shared by abbie.

The water here is calm and cool in the summer, making it ideal for going for a dip with friends.\nWhen entering the water, make sure to be careful since the rocks can sometimes be slippery with green algae.\nView this post on Instagram june-uary you can go away now, we want the sunshine back 🙃☀️ A post shared by ✨Osh ✨ (@oceannsmith) on Jun 5, 2018 at 8:40pm PDT\nThe next time you're looking for something to do, pack up your bathing suit and towel and enjoy an unforgettable summer day.\nBarber's Hole\nPrice: Free\nAddress: Forbidden Plateau Rd., Courtenay, BC\nWhy You Need To Go: You can cool off at this secret swimming hole.\n View this post on Instagram 🌞🌞 A post shared by Lucy (@lucyzelko) on Aug 5, 2018 at 10:44pm PDT\n\nWebsite\n\n\nWe strongly advise that before you go swimming or visit any location, you check the most recent updates on potential hazards, security, water quality, and closures.
