If it requires a bikini, our answer is yes. Some of the best memories happen in a bathing suit. It is hard to beat cannonballing into the lake or lounging on the beach. This summer, make some new unforgettable memories with your friends at this local paradise. You can follow a quick 2.7-kilometre trail to reach a secret beachy swimming hole in B.C.

Sure, you could watch another episode or two on Netflix. But instead, you could have sand between your toes if you head to Lost Lake.

For us, the choice is easy. When the weather is nice, we want to be outside as much as possible.

Only seven minutes from Whistler Village, or roughly one hour and 40 minutes from Vancouver, is a gorgeous swimming hole with bright blue water.

What makes this spot so special? Unlike many other lakes where you have to jump into the water from a rocky shore, here there you'll find an actual beach with golden sand.

Plus, unlike some of the beaches closer to Vancouver, you can enjoy fewer crowds too.

Getting to the lake is so simple that you could probably even complete the hike in flip flops.

Halfway along the well-maintained loop path through the forest, you'll reach the swimming spot.

Then you can enjoy some serious mermaid vibes as you swim all afternoon.

From the water, you'll be able to enjoy the view, which is breathtaking. Mountains and a lush evergreen forest will surround you.

Right next to the beach, you'll find plenty of green space where you can set up a picnic blanket. There are even BBQs perfect for grilling up lunch.

But our favourite spot to chill with friends would have to be on the floating dock. It is just a short swim to reach it, and well worth the effort.

It is time to go for a swim, so grab your bathing suit and your car keys!
