“wash off the stress”

Queen's Bath is a unique tide pool on the island of Kauaʻi, Hawaii. The pool is a sinkhole surrounded by igneous rock. It is located on the north shore of Kauaʻi in the town of Princeville. The swimming area is accessible via a short trail. In the winter during periods of high surf it is considered dangerous. Seven people have drowned after being swept off rocks by unexpected waves. In small surf—usually in the summer—the water in the pool is calm. Small fish and tiny sea life also live in the tide pool, such as Hawaiʻian sea urchins, angelfish and the so-called "ghost fish". The original "Queen's Bath" was located in Kalapana on the Big Island of Hawaiʻi. It was formed after a lava tube collapsed and filled with fresh water supplied by natural springs. In ancient times only the Aliʻi (Royalty) were permitted entry to the sacred waters. In 1983 Kilauea Volcano erupted and in 1987 the original site was destroyed by lava flow. Only after the original site on the Big Island of Hawaiʻi was destroyed did the location on Kauai become better known as "Queen's Bath". This tide pool was used for what it sounds like; it was a royal bathing place. It was also used as a place of relaxation when an Aliʻi needed to "wash off the stress". Modern day tourists frequent the queen's bath as a romantic secluded swimming location.

If you come here… we do ask that you keep the trails and the bath clean.. if you bring snacks, drinks, etc.. please take it out with you as well. Thank you!!! :)

Also don't get to close to the edge…especially if you're not a strong swimmer

It's pretty hard to find but when you hit the bottom of the path, go left and it's about a 10 minute hike/walk

WEAR GOOD SHOES! It's so slippery and the rocks and cliffs can be a bit dangerous. Just go slow and you'll be fine. Once you get to Queen's Bath be careful because the waves can push you out to sea, the best advice would be to bring a floaty down with you. A cool thing to see though.
