First of all, it's fabulous! The trail down is amazingly scenic - and - challenging. Attempt only if in decent health and good knees. Easy for kids. Also, the area only has parking for 10 or so cars so you can park at the golf course and walk a very pleasant 1mile or wait for a spot to open up.... More

I've been to Queen's Bath three times but could only go in the water once. When the tide is low and the surf is low, this is an amazing place to swim and snorkel. Just please be extremely careful if you visit - always check the local tide times and go only at low tide. High surf is a risk... More

On the north shore of Kuaui, it is a short walk down the hill from a small parking area in a residential neighbourhood. When we were there 28 deaths had been recorded on the rocks. However, as someone that lives on the ocean and understands the power of the sea, we happily jumped off the rocks and swam in the... More

We stayed down the street from Queen's Bath recently. That's the first thing to know - it's in a residential area. Don't complain about the parking - it was never meant to be a big attraction. The reason is clear when you visit. The hike down, though short, requires agility, coordination and good shoes. Once there, there are numerous rock... More

This is definitely worth the short (5-10 min ) hike from the parking lot . Wear runners ... Flip flops and sandels do not give you enough traction on the trail or the rocks . It is a beautiful vista once you are there and you may be lucky enough to see turtles and whales .

This is a pretty amazing place, not the queen's bath itself, but if you walk a few hundred yards past the tourists playing in the bath, it gets pretty extraordinary. Be careful as it is quite dangerous, many have died.

We found a low wave day and hiked into Queen's Bath (we were there in the winter). Heavy sport sandals recommended for the hike in as it's a fairly steep descent with lots of foliage that can be slippery. Then you're walking on volcanic rocks! There are three bowls. The first one is beautiful and has a waterfall coming into... More
