9. O'heo Gulch Pools, Hawaii



Part of the Haleakala National Park, about 40 minutes south of Hana on Maui's eastern shore, the O'heo Gulch Pools are a series of beautiful waterfalls and natural pools formed by Pipiwai Stream. Some of the pools are more secluded than others and require a hike amidst stunning scenery.


10. Pewits Nest, Wisonsin



The small, nine-acre Pewits Nest, located just outside of Baraboo in Sauk County, Wis. is a natural gorge cut by a small stream called Skillet Creek. The state natural area features a series of small waterfalls and a series of pools dominated by 30-40ft cliffs that a few brave visitors dive from.

Smile at whatever happens.

11. Gljufrafoss, Iceland



Gljufrafoss is a small waterfall north of the larger falls of Seljalandsfoss in Iceland. The falls are partially obscured by the cliff rock, and a winding trail and wooden ladder enable sightseers to climb roughly halfway up and view the falls.


12. Hamilton Pool, Texas



Located about 23 miles west of Austin, Texas, Hamilton Pool is a natural pool that was created when the dome of an underground river collapsed due to massive erosion thousands of years ago. It features a jade green pool into which a 50-foot waterfall flows.

13. Ik Kil Cenote, Mexico



Hidden about 85 feet below ground, the lk Kil Cenote in the northern center of the Yucatán Peninsula, is one of the world’s most beautiful swimming spots. Open to the sky, it features a carved stairway down to a swimming platform and the turquoise water. Vines reach from the opening all the way down to the water along with small waterfalls.


14. Gullfoss, Iceland



Although Gullfoss is one of Iceland’s most popular attractions, the majestic waterfall is almost hidden from view so that it appears that mighty river simply vanishes into the earth. Located in the canyon of Hvitá river, it turns sharply to the right and flows down into a wide curved three-step “staircase” and then abruptly plunges in two stages into a crevice 105 ft deep.

Smile at whatever happens.

15. Kuang Si Falls, Laos



Located south of Luang Prabang, Kuang Si is a multi-tier waterfall with water that collects in numerous turquoise blue pools as it flows downstream. There are also trails to climb to the top of the falls where there are more natural pools for swimming. The trails, however, are steep and can be slippery.


16. Havasu Falls, Arizona



Located within the Havasupai Indian Reservation in Grand Canyon National Park, Havasu Falls is a hidden wonder within a wonder. It features a main chute that drops nearly 100 feet over a vertical cliff into a large pool of blue-green water.

Smile at whatever happens.

17. Sawmill Falls, Oregon



In Oregon's Opal Creek Wilderness, a four-mile hike traverses the old-growth forest to 30-foot Sawmill Falls, which features a cascade that pours into a deep green pool ideal for a chilly swim.


18. Johnson's Shut-ins, Missouri



Johnson’s Shut-Ins State Park in the Ozark Mountains features an obstacle course through cascading streams, deep pools, and shallow pockets. The shut-ins are areas where the Black River’s flow is blocked by volcanic stone, resulting in a collection of 'private' pools.

Smile at whatever happens.

19. Sliding Rock, North Carolina



Located at Pisgah National Forest near Asheville, NC, Sliding Rock is a natural water slide and pool. Visitors take the plunge down a 60-foot slippery cascade into the 50-60 degree, 7ft-deep pool, with cold waters perfect for cooling off in the summer.


20. Cummins Falls, Tennessee



Hidden among rolling hills along the Blackburn Fork State Scenic River, Cummins Falls is 75 ft high, its water cascading into a spectacular swimming hole. Visitors embark on 20-minute hike to reach the bottom of the falls and swim but the scenery makes the trek worthwhile. Sightseers can also view the falls from an overlook.

Smile at whatever happens.
