Swimming holes always make me think of my childhood; warm, sunny days, feeling free and abandoned and jumping into clear fresh water. In natural swimming holes there’s no nasty taste of salt, no added chlorine - just crystal-clear freshwater that tastes like your favorite bottled water. Of course, there are also some gorgeous swimming holes that contain sea water and these can be just as fabulous as natural freshwater pools. Check the following list of 9 gorgeous swimming holes and find out if there is one somewhere within your reach.
1. Ginnie Springs, Florida
Allegedly, Jacques Cousteau described the water of the Ginnie Springs as the clearest in the world. This stunning place is one of the most beautiful natural freshwater pools found in Florida. Seven amazing springs are located in the town of High Spring, along the Santa Fe River. If swimming is not enough for you, there are a number of other activities offered, like snorkeling, scuba diving, cave diving and tubing.
