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.

I had read about this place and seen the beautiful pictures of the calm little swimming pool that the odd wave broke into, making it a nice, private swimming hole. Well that's not what we saw. High surf crashing against the shore and into the pool to the extent that the seaside lava rocks were completely covered by surf the... More

Definitely worth the hike down/up the muddy hillside. Beautiful view. Wear shoes you don't care about or can be washed.

Highlight of our day was the incredible, awesome beauty found at Queens bath. Not for the faint of heart , weak of body or unchecked ego A winding, very rutted and often slippery muddy root plagued trail takes you through a gorgeous canopy of tropical rainforest. As you near the coast , your ears are alerted to the power of... More

We went into Queen's Bath in January and the trail was super slippery. The palm reeds were on it and our feet got cut up. When you get there it's a pretty incredible sight though.

Cool sight. Trail is narrow and steep in places and can be VERY muddy and slippery. Once out on the rocks, be extremely conscious of the surf. If it is high, be very careful and never get near the edge. There are signs noting that many people have been killed here when not paying attention to the waves that hit... More
