Bathtub Island is one of those places that you discover by accident. It's a little slice of heaven in Lake Superior Provincial Park, which is just a few hours north of Sault Ste Marie. The island is characterized by an enclosed cluster of low rocks that creates a pool (or "bathtub") of water separate from the lake. In the summer months, the shallower depths can sometimes make for a warmer swim, and the surrounding landscape provides some of the most picturesque views of the Lake Superior coastline.

Getting to the island can be rather tricky, as there is no obvious dedicated path leading to it. However, past explorers have noted that the island is around a half kilometre south of the turn for Katherine Cove along Highway 17, or a 15-minute walk from the beach. There is no designated parking either, so if you do decide to visit, make sure to take caution when parking on the shoulder. As the island is one of the most pristine spots in the area, please be mindful of the environment.
