The Natural Swimming Hole At The Slab In Texas Will Take You Back To The Good Ole Days

Texas has no shortage of swimming holes to make a splash in during summertime, each one bucket list-worthy in its own right. The Slab in Kingsland, with sandy beaches, unique granite formations, and pristine waters, will surely take you back to the good ole days.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately.

Make sure to wear shoes with good traction, as the rocks can be slippery. Use caution around fast-moving water, as well, since rapids often occur after rainfall and can sweep even expert swimmers away. Heavy rain can flood the road, too, so be careful when driving. The Llano River is prone to flooding in general, so always keep an eye on local weather alerts before heading out.

Also, even though exploring to find a more secluded spot is allowed, stay on the waterbed — you could get caught trespassing for venturing off.
