The trail to get to Queen's bath is very slippery, and it is approximately/ equivalent of 8 stories, so take it slow, and carefully! Also wear shoes that have some traction! The views of the ocean are amazing, but don't turn your back to the ocean, it can be dangerous. Take lot's of pictures, this is an amazing place!

It was a short but intense and muddy hike down to Queen's bath but it was very rewarding. Super cool to climb the cliffs and watch the cool natural swimming pool.

Spectacular views when the ocean is angry. Don't ever underestimate the power of the waves. While we were well away from the surf an occasional wave would sweep well within reach of where we were standing. Take note of the postings about those who have ventured too close when the sea is rough and are no longer around to share... More

Limited parking and not an easy hike, but totally worth it once you get there. This place is NOT SAFE. I went on a day where the winds were high and the waves were huge. I stayed as far back from the edge as I could as I had heard too many accounts of people slipping on the rocks or... More

Don't hike after it's been raining because the train is super steep already but trust me that this is the most gorgeous place ever! Make sure to go during low tide so you can enjoy this EPIC swimming hole with a view that will make everyone in your life jealous!

The trek down to Queen's Bath is a bit treacherous but if I can do it anyone can. Just be very careful. We were there in Feb 2017 so the north shore is churned up in the winter. I personally did not go in the Queen's Bath. It was way to rough that day but it was worth going to... More

This is an awesome thing to do on your vacation spot on Kauai. The only trouble is that there isn't a lot of parking. Park on the street you will definitely get a ticket. The locals will call it in. When you get here. The hike down is amazing. Listening to birds and waterfalls. The Terran has definitely changed in... More

This was a neat place to visit right in Princeville. We hiked down to this out of the way tide pool in the evening after a few days in a row of rain out on the north shore of Kauai. The trail leading down is very, very hazardous near the top so bring sturdy shoes. Just before the end of... More

We were lucky on this trip and the path was dry which made the trip down easier. We come here every year and never get tired of it. Today, we saw lots of crabs along the rocks which we had never seen before. A very peaceful place. During the summer and fall months, it is a nice little place to... More

We went in winter and at low tide so it was definitely too volatile for swimming. It was stunningly beautiful and we enjoyed watching the awesome power of the waves crashing against the rocks. You need to be a bit sure-footed to get down there but definitely worth the walk.
