Screen Shot 2018-02-05 at 4.14.19 PM.png While it may look like a hidden oasis on a tropical island, this magnificent hideaway is located in British Columbia.

Here, an abandoned limestone quarry is flooded over and takes on a magnificent, aquamarine hue. Named “Quarry Lake,” this body of water is the perfect escape on a hot summer day. Located on Texada Island, the swimming hole greets visitors with a litany of impressive attributes. From the triumphant, treelined rock-faces soaring skyward, to the pristine, jewel-coloured waters rippling gently in the island breeze, this island is paradisiacally enchanting.

While the lake is marvellous, the rest of Texada Island is great fun and extremely beautiful. As the largest of the gulf islands, there is a great deal of activities to enjoy and things to see. In addition, it is historically fascinating. Indeed, Spanish explorers began mining on the island in the 1900s. They mined iron, copper and gold, while today the island has limestone quarries.

The island is also ideal for scuba diving, boasting warm, high-visibility waters. Furthermore, boats and kayaks may be rented to enjoy the island’s breathtaking coastlines.
