When you think of a fun ocean getaway, you might picture lounging in Bali or Jamaica. But you don't need your passport to enjoy this hidden gem. Did you know there is a beach waterfall in B.C., where you can swing right next to the water? 

Sandcut Beach on Vancouver Island needs to be on your bucket list. It is one of the many gorgeous spots on the Juan de Fuca trail where you can find waterfalls or bright blue tide pools.

All it takes is a short stroll through the forest trail and over the boardwalk to reach the coastline. Once you're there, all they need are some candles and flowers and it's the perfect spot for a reality TV show date.

The entire trek from the parking lot to the swing will take you roughly the same amount of time it takes to unload the dishwasher. But instead of getting a cupboard of clean plates, here you'll escape to a pristine beach.

Honestly, this spot is so surreal, you are going to want to spend all your free time here. 

Not only is there a sensational view of the Olympic Peninsula, but you can also enjoy the soothing sound of the waves lapping up on the shore.

The best spot on the pebbly shore is at the south end next to the impressive waterfall.

Right next to the falls is where you'll find a rope swing.

Here you can swing your troubles away as you soak in the sights of the coast and waterfalls. It truly is unlike anything you've ever experienced.

It is also possible to go up close and explore the falls. If you are feeling particularly adventurous, you can even go behind them to enjoy a cooling mist.

While you are in the area, there is one more place you'll want to see before you drive home. Only a short drive further, you hike to a secret waterfall hidden inside a cave

For the ultimate day trip, why not invite your BFF to see both? The next time you get a chance to go to the island you should swing over to this spot.
