This Swimming Spot Has The Clearest, Most Pristine Water In Maine

There is certainly no shortage of places to swim in Maine. For beach lovers, we’ve got that rocky coast interspersed with some lovely sandy beaches. For those who prefer being inland, there are plenty of lakes and rivers to spend a nice summer day. But, there’s a special, pristine spot nestled in the woods that just might be our favorite.

Located in Evans Notch, you’ll find Rattlesnake Pool. This perfect swimming hole is hidden near Blueberry Mountain and can be found after a hike in the area. Sure, swimming holes are wonderful, but what makes this one extra special is the absolutely perfect water. The clear blue will make you feel like you’re in the Caribbean and even just a quick dip will cool you off during these last few weeks of summer.

Michelle has lived in many places, but counts Maine as one of the best. In addition to the smell of ocean water in the air on rainy days in Portland, she loves puppies, photography, funny people, the Maine Red Claws, traveling, fresh tomatoes, Cambodia and filling out forms.
