Here’s another great place to visit on a day trip. There is a rocky and sandy bottom you can stand on in many places, and the water bubbles up from small cracks in the rock! It’s very pretty.
The drive is about an hour, and it’s very scenic. You will end up in the Ocala National Forest in a tiny town called Salt Springs. There are bathrooms and showers, paved walkways and steps into the water. The water is refreshing, probably around 74 degrees.

While I was there I did some free diving.
