Our planet is beautiful. Living the fast city life, we tend to forget that, but there are millions of places all around the globe where you can go to break the routine, relax and recharge.

When you think of an ideal vacation, you probably have swimming in mind. We all love swimming in the ocean or the sea, but being on the crowded beach isn’t the only option there is. Sometimes, having a relatively small swimming hole and some privacy is all it takes to feel like in paradise. Here are some of the most amazing holes, springs and lakes from around the world. They are not too popular among tourists which only adds value to them.
