The heat is upon us in Utah and it’s not going anywhere, anytime soon. Beat the heat and experience the natural beauty that Utah has to offer by visiting these swimming holes that are sure to impress.
Located just outside Zions National Park in a secluded area, this swimming hole is a desert oasis.
An all-natural geothermal pool located in Midway. The water stays at a toasty 96 degrees and is great for floating around or even scuba diving.
This place is a little piece of heaven on earth where the natural hot spring pools are fed by a beautiful waterfall. Located in the middle of Diamond Fork Canyon.
Located about 30 minutes south of Provo at the Mona Ponds. They have multiple platforms you can use to swing out to the water and there is even a small rope swing for younger kids to try out.
This beautiful spot in Moab is considered the local swimming hole, and a nice relaxing place to beat the heat.
