Great views, too rough to swim but it was beautiful to see. There where whales an turtles nearby. It was a fairly easy hike but you should have proper footwear as it is slippery in some places.

For the most part, we found Queen's Bath to be beautiful and calm. In my opinion, a must see when visiting Kauai. But... With little or no warning a huge crashing wave can knock you off the lava rocks. I saw it happen to a couple swimming in the bath... just as SC was about to jump in. Luckily, the... More

Day 1 of January vacation in Kaua'i: it rains buckets; we take naps, get unpacked. Day 2: hike to Queen's Bath; slip on rocks; suffer broken ankle; get airlifted from wet rocks; ride 45 mins. in splint and incredible pain to hospital in Lihue. Result: in bed with leg elevated for the rest of the vacation. Oh, except for trips... More

Once you get down to the bath it is so breath taking! You must make sure that when you go it is on a day when the ocean is not rough as this can be a dangerous place! Safety is key here. I love the bath and the fish. It is a must see in my books.

A little hike down to the area. Wear with hiking shoes or water shoes as it gets wet on the rocks and can be very slippery. An Amazing site to see in the winter months - not safe for swimming in the winter months. So gorgeous!

The day we visited the Queen’s Bath the tide was low but there was still some crazy wave action in the nearby inlet. Basically this is a place you should not visit October – April or when the waves are high as high waves that have literally washed people out to sea. Disclaimer! While I think the Queen’s Bath is...

We slipped and slided our way down to the Queens Baths and pleased we did. It was a rainy day and still enjoyed it. Extremely slippery at times so hiker beware! We took our thongs off and went down barefoot and came across other folks who had taken their runners (sandshoes) off and were braving it on foot too.

Don't be traped by the trail that may look like it's a hard one. Very easy to do, just pay attention for the slippery parts and bring some sports shoes if you can. On your left there is a beautiful place where you can walk and see the ocean. On your right you'll be able to reach the Queen's bath.... More

great for pictures but be careful, the waves are dangerous...they will crash up and pull anything on rocks down with them. The week were there 2 people got caught and were not found. You don't need much time here, just a stop by for pictures is fine.
