1. Wet Beaver Creek
Beaver Creek is the perfect spot to have a picnic and a swim. We recommend you to get there early as it fills up quickly during popular times. There are picnic tables and grills on-site.
2. Grasshopper Point
Do you think of yourself as an adventurer? Grasshopper Point is a breathtaking swimming hole surrounded by rugged scenery ideal as jumping platforms. The water depth varies, so swimmers of every level can cool off splashing in its waters.
3. Havasu Falls
Travel to the Grand Canyon and take a break from the heat by swimming at Havasu Falls. The contrast between the red rock and the blue pool is just dreamy. Note that this is not an easy spot to reach; visitors usually take a 10-mile hike to get there or pay for a helicopter ride.
4. Slide Rock
Slide Rock has been named one of “America’s Top 10 Swimming Holes”. Sliding is the main attraction at this famous swimming hole that is 1/2 mile long. It can get crowded, especially during the summer months, so get there early or visit on weekdays.
5. Fossil Creek
Enjoy the chilly water during summer. Fossil Creek is accessible via a 2.5-mile trail where you’ll feast your eyes on natural wonders until you reach the turquoise swimming hole. Be extremely careful when swimming and exploring around this area; it’s a complex area to be rescued from!
