Imagine swimming in a bath. The temperature is usually awesome!! You can snorkel- there are some fish to see. One of my favorite places to swim. I highly recommend going when the tide is getting high. Not too deep- maybe 12 feet in the center.

What can I say that hasn't been said already... One tip: Check out the tide tables... If you want the warm experience of the heated water... go at low tide. If you want to have fun splashing in the spray of the rushing incoming water - go at high tide. As has been mentioned before... warm water breeds bacteria and... More

There are some strange characters or at least that day and i believe we spelled someone smoking pot to. But... More

This warm water pool is walled off from the ocean to keep the spring fed warm water in, but I still was on the ocean. Beautiful location and it is free.

We visited this spot almost as an afterthought one afternoon. Wow, what a nice surprise! It is a volcanically-heated, man-made plunge fed by both hot, freshwater springs and the ocean. Access is easy. . . just park in the parking lot, walk on over, and walk down the steps right into the water. We were there at low tide, when... More

Great thermal spring soaking pool. We went early in the morning our second time thinking we would avoid crowds, wrong! Many locals use the pool. The first time someone told us to be sure to shower with anti bacterial soap, risk of staph infection, etc. The next time a local told us they check it weekly and he has been... More

Happened to be there on a Monday. A group of locals gather there every Monday for a music jam session, they play stuff from the 60's to the 80's & are very good. It's very casual & friendly, if you stand back to listen you're invited to join in. I went intending to do some reading, was there for 3... More

Natural Hot Spring fed pool on the coast. Hi tide refreshes the water. Pool is surrounded by rock and cement sides (done back in the day) Grass areas, Life Guard, sometimes vendors sell snacks too. Nice place for the whole family. Week ends can be crowded, best to go week days. Not a lot of parking.

Surprisingly warm water. Great for kids to swim around and do some snorkeling. A really safe place with porter potties, showers and a life guard. Best to visit on a weekday if you are a tourist.

A full size outdoor pool, cement and rocks. Thermal. Life guard. County park. Pavilions. Lots of local people, especially on weekends. Be polite. It is their park.
