“Breathtaking!”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

This place is definitely worth the stop. A hidden gem - if you cannot find it - stop and ask a local.
The view was amazing!

“Beautiful but VERY dangerous”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

We went at low tide which was very deceptive. If you walk to the edge and view down into the baths you should watch for a good ten minutes to check the surf. There were 7 of us aged 12-51 and once we got all the way underneath the small cavern like area the surge was tsunami like. Had anyone been in the pools instead of on the elevated rock area there's a good chance someone would've been killed. Also you should wear shows (not flip flops) The rock surface has the texture of barnacles.

“Simply Amazing”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

My trip to Queen's Bath was amazing! It's easy to find if you know where to look. About 1 mile south of the Window Glass Bridge on the east side of Queens Hwy you will see two stone walls. Park your car on the side of the Hwy and hike along the path through the stone walls. As the path widens head towards the right. You will soon see the Tidal Pools cut in the rocks. Check the tide levels before you go as you won't be able to go in during high tide. Also make sure you have sturdy water shoes on as the rocks are jagged and there are sea urchins in the sides of some of the pools. But it is well worth the effort - a truly beautiful spot with the Atlantic Ocean crashing all around and the calm still water of the pools filling up.

“Best Bath Ever”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

You feel like your walking on the moon, so bring sneakers. The coral is amazing and as you explore you will find natural baths carved into the coral where you can soak or just enjoy the beauty.

“A Rugged Attraction”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

Visiting the Queens Bath takes a little work and preparation. First their is No signage. Look for two stone monuments on the east side of the road about a mile south of the window bridge. Parking is along the highway. Rugged footwear is recommended, getting to the baths requires a walk across a couple hundred yards of uneven and rough volcanic rock. If you want to approach the bath or the area around it good sturdy water shoes are a must. Swimming in the bath is fun if your timing is right. At high tide and rough seas the area is just too dangerous with the waves crashing in. But if you get there when waves flush gently into the bath it is wonderful. The waves have also scoured out a small cave behind the bath. The bath area can be a dangerous place for children, if you are visiting with children I recommend visiting around low tide on a calm day. Definitely one of the island's memorable sites.

This is a semi natural area with no amenities. Part of the charm, but plan accordingly.
