Create an itinerary including Queen's Bath
Bathe in the crystal clear waters and take in views of the Pacific Ocean at Queen's Bath. Access this natural tide pool via a short trail. You'll discover abundant sea life including urchins, angelfish, and local ghost fish. The collapse of a lava tube shaped the pool and natural springs filled it with water. Natives considered the pool sacred in ancient times. Be aware that when wave activity is violent (usually in winter) the tide pool can be dangerous.

  • Queens Bath is a gem. BUT, go at low tide and a calm sea day to avoid being swept to sea by the waves that can wash over Queens Bath. There is a small parking area at the trailhead, so get there...

  • An absolute must do absolutely beautiful and our favorite part of the whole trip. Plan to get muddy but you’ll be able to run south in the bath. Worth every step

  • Epic views of the ocean surging against the cliffs. It is totally worth the short hike. Pretty slippery path so be sure if your footing. Very dangerous place if you’re not keeping aware of your surroundings when walking along the cliffs. The Bath itself was completely submerged at times so we didn’t venture in too close.
  • Queen's Bath was worth the wait and worth the hike. We went at 5:30pm and there was only a 15 minute wait to park. The day had been dry so the trail down was easy to walk. There are many ruts to navigate but it was not as hard as the sign at the trail head, and many other reviews, lead you to believe. Once there, you will see sea turtles, great views of the ocean, and the sink holes. Two of the sink holes are difficult to swim in. The third, and farthest from the trail, is calm and safe to swim in. Plan on spending about 2 hours on this adventure.
