Hot Springs Cove is only accessible by boat or plane, but even then you need to hike an extra 2 kilometres to get to this jaw-dropping spot. The cove is made up of a series of natural pools that are each around a sizzling 47°C. Don’t stress about the heat though, the water flushing in from the Pacific Ocean cools it to a lovely hot spring temperature.
Daily charters from Tofino, BC, are available for anyone looking to take the plunge (literally and figuratively).
Our advice if you’re nearby? Leave work early to go Tofino Friday, walk around Saturday, then spend Sunday at the springs before you head back to metropolitan life.
When: Open year round, weather permitting
Where: Here’s a Google Maps link
Cost: Free, but charters to get there start at $109 for boats
