Real cute little pool, temperature about 90 % in the water, some colder areas. The ocean water pours into the pool. Lots of ladders to climb in. I didn't all the Coconut trees on the walls where you sit because it was windy, I was afraid the coconuts may fall off and hit me in the head.

Of all the places I visited during my three weeks on the Big Island, this was the most disappointing. My wife gets cold easily when swimming at most beaches, so I thought a naturally-heated pool would be a great treat for her. But the water was lukewarm at best. There were no bathroom facilities (a porta potty is not a... More

I thought it was just ok but the kids really enjoyed playing in the water here. There's also good shower facilities available and plenty of free parking.

We stopped here on a tour of the coast. There were great picnic facilities and a good view of the ocean. The place was swarming with tourists so we got some great people watching in as well. We only dipped our toes in after reading about the bacteria risks, and were glad we stayed out, as the next day our... More

This is a popular place for locals and travelers to soak and swim in the naturally heated pond right next to the ocean.

We were spending the afternoon driving around the Puna region and happened upon this place frequented by locals. Not fancy - no amenities. A perfect calm place for young children to take a dip in the sea in an area otherwise characterized by crashing waves and strong currents. This is actually a stone enclosure built by the WPA which encircles... More

My second visit to this spot, this time there was a sea turtle sunning itself of the beach (attracting everybody that was there) they should never be approached to close as this is one of their last beaches they will come ashore, but absolutely amazing. Always a great, only slightly out of the way to go for a great memory.... More

We loved this warm pond after snorkeling in the tidepools all afternoon. Very relaxing and they even had a lifeguard. There were little fish that nibbled on my heels at first but I got used to it. Guess they liked the dry skin. Showers and picnic tables. Quite the find.

We loved the warm and relaxing pool at ocean's edge. It was a bit out of the way and so was not crowded. Although not "hot" it will certainly compete with the onsen beauty in Japan. Plan to spend some time here. You will need to feel your way around the pool as some areas are warmer than others. Although... More

We so enjoyed the heated waters here. Very healing and relaxing. Really did my tired muscles some good. I noted an earlier post about dirty water. I did not find the pool dirty at all. In fact, I had a cut on my finger that was not healing and the warm salt water of the pool was apparently what was... More
