This is not a kiddie pool. The wooden boards says 28 deaths have occurred here. The hike down is a steep muddy tangle of tree roots. The rocky coast is manageable but potentially treacherous. Also, if the gate is locked, and you hike around the...More

Very small parking lot and not any other places since the trail starts in a sort of complex where people live. Then, it's a bit of a hike down through roots and some mud to the water/rocks and then you walk over around the corner...More

Avoid the long wait for a spot in the tiny parking lot! Park at the golf course for $15 for the day and enjoy an easy walk of less than half a mile to the Queen’s Bath path entrance.

Gorgeous spot, especially if you hike past the main bath to a more private pool. Only park in designated lots at the trailhead, though! We parked on the street behind other cars and every one of us got nailed with an $85 ticket this AM.

We come to Kauai every summer & have hiked to Queens Bath many times. However this summer the trail seemed to be more challenging. We waited for a few days after the rain for the trail to dry up some & it was still extremely...More

The hike is simple, but slippery if it has been raining. During the winter months this beautiful treasure is not accessible due to the unsafe surf. Take water, sunscreen that is reef friendly, and a towel. This hike is well worth the effort!
