One of the most beautiful places I’ve been to in the Comox Valley would have to be Barber’s Hole. I don’t recommend taking little ones with you if you don’t have a partner to help you with the hike down. I took a 3-year-old, 9-year-old, and two 11-year-olds. I had a wee bit of a panic attack while climbing down the steep hills with my youngest.
I digress, it was a great experience. The water is refreshing and the insects, creatures, and bugs my little guy found were everywhere.
The older boys found a bunch of clay at the bottom of the lake and took turns diving to grab up clumps. Very exciting stuff!
My daughter didn’t feel comfortable swimming, because there is a little current and she’s still some-what new to solo swimming.
