Swimming Holes

Swimming holes are amazing places for wild swimming. They have a special, healing energy. Fresh, clean water flows through them, fed by rivers or subterranean sources. Some of them are tiny whilst others are big enough to swim 25-meter laps in them. You can find some swimming holes in dense jungles and others amid arid mountains. The sound of trickling water from swimming holes will relax your soul. After wild swimming in their chilly waters, you will feel refreshed and renewed.

Below you will find a selection of the best swimming holes. To find them by destination, look at the main menu.
