Very limited parking. Hike down is fairly steep. We went on a day when it was calm and absolutely stunning. Water is crystal clear and If you are going to make the hike you may as well get in. Beautiful hike d in and out as well. A must see.

While there is a bit of a hike to get to Queen's Bath, it's worth it. It's probably a 2 out of 5 in difficulty (5 being very difficult), just don't wear flip flops. And use common sense, if the tide is rough and high, don't go in the pool. We were lucky, and got there when the tide was... More

There should be a sticky note on this page because someone won't get it; won't understand the danger. There has been 19 reported drowning deaths at Queen's Bath. In the usually calm summer it's a fun place but if there are waves it kills. I imagine that I can't link to videos, but go to youtube and look for 'Tourists... More

I saw and read all of the "beware" signs and articles. That has never stopped me. Yes, it can be very dangerous, but use common sense. There were waves coming over the lava and into the pool. I was sitting on the lava as it was and it was invigorating. But it could have easily knocked a small child down.... More

Queen's bath is absolutely beautiful. The experience all depends on the time of day and year that you visit--we happened to get there at the perfect time (lower tide and earlier in the morning) and great time of the year. Parking is limited, so try to get there early. There is an obscure path/mini hike leading down to the rocks... More

The hike down to Queen's Bath was nice. The tide was low and the pool too shallow for swimming, but two nearby jags featured a bit of a surge and several turtles, so we ventured into both. Snorkeling not so much except for the turtle sightings, and the surge waves coming in were a little daunting, but the dips were... More

The hike up to Queens Bath was easy and pretty quick. The view along the hike was pretty also. Queens bath itself was beautiful, more so being able to swim in it along side the fishes. We got there around 8ish and there were only a few people and parking was easy. On our way back a lady was showing... More

Parking is slim but if you wait 5-10 minutes people will come and go. The short hike down is a bit slippery at points, definitely need to watch your step. The views are amazing. The tide was high in the 'bath' and there was NO way anyone would get in. Seeing pics makes me assume you should plan to go... More

Short walk down a trail with some rocks and roots. With good shoes trail is pretty easy. Nice small waterfall on the way. Lava rocks overlook the ocean. Pretty!
