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.

  • This place was awesome! One of the highlights of our trip. As long as you go during low tide you are totally safe. I would also take some goggles because there are some cool fish in there and it's very clear. The hike down is a little rough, but with good shoes you'd be fine
  • Check the tide tables before you go and remain on land for your own safety. I went early in the morning and had the place to myself for about 30 minutes before the hordes of people showed up. During my visit I observed multiple turtles in the water. I recommend good footwear for the walk down. Leave the flip flops in the car.
