Great little hike to a beautiful spot to witness the power of the ocean swells! It was too cold for us to swim in the actual Queen's Bath, but the water looked beautiful and clear. The ocean didn't look too dangerous at the time of our visit, but the waves crashing against the rocks still made quite entertaining sprays. A... More

A nice short hike balanced with some great views! The trail is groomed and you see some great plant variations along the way?

This experience was one of the most exciting I have encountered. The hike is a bit difficult and dangerous. Make sure you have a good pair of shoes that have grip. The hike is short but the view is fantastic, you will see a small waterfall that leads into the ocean. The view is great.

The hike down is really nice there is a small waterfall on the way to queens bath. It's a relatively easy hike . Once you break off the path there are.

This is a dangerous spot....many tourists so but with steep trail down and lava rock can be very strenuous -- ocean unpredictable here and many tourists have to get air vac out when hurt - there have been 11 deaths in surf related accidents - especially NOT a good place for children.

At the end of my street (walk straight down Punahele), so I see the ambulances coming down all the time to pick some idiot of the rocks who went down in flip-flops. Its the Pacific, team, with big waves, That said it is the highlight of Princeville for me. You have to be fit and sensible - but if you... More

We visited during the winter months, the site itself is stunning, really something you cannot miss. However, don't expect to swim, it is actually really dangerous (at least in the winter).

We were there in March when the weather was cloudy and wet. This is a tough hike when the trail is wet and a bit dangerous. However, it is beautiful and worth the effort.

great views, interesting little falls on the way down intimidating sign on your approach showing how many have died after being swept out to sea, worth the trip on a calm day

The hike isn't that bad. Be careful going down the steep trail especially if it just rained. Just be smart and don't swim.
