Swimming Outdoors with Google Maps
The Wild Swim Map from the Outdoor Swimming Society is a crowd-sourced Google Map of great places to swim outdoors.
The markers on the map are color-coded to indicate whether the location is an outdoor pool, a river, a lake etc. It is also possible to filter the results shown on the map by other activities, such as if there are opportunities for jumping / diving, skinny dipping or endurance swimming.
Each location listed on the map includes a description and comments and many also include photographs of the outdoor swimming spot.
