Reviews

Short trail to the regal and peaceful Queen's Bath! A few things to note: 1) The parking lot is in a fancy community surrounded by a golf course. We felt unsure if we were in the right spot until we saw the Trailhead sign. 2) The trail itself is a short trek through the woods and is mostly downhill and a bit unstable. We wore flip flops and swimsuits, but I would recommend shoes that are a bit sturdier for handling the hills and roots. 3) Once you get out of the woods, head to the left until you come upon Queen's Bath! It's beautiful to look out on the ocean - we spotted about 8 large sea turtles! Queen's Bath itself is lovely and warm for swimming and snorkeling, but research and pay attention to the tides, as it is very dangerous depending on that! The hike doesn't take long, but leave a lot of time for looking at the ocean and swimming in the bath! Also fun fact: The golf course is the ONLY place on the island I saw the elusive Hawaiian Goose, so take a look there if that's on your bird watching list.
