I have to say that sitting in a warm pool with a lot of other people is not my thing. However, if this does not bother you then it's a nice place to visit.

Nice place for a relaxing swim. Water was super warm and the salt content allows you to float. There were some odd ppl however and I wouldn't have been comfortable with the kids there.... they were swimming naked and the lifeguard on duty wasn't overly worried. Worth the trip

We heard about these springs so decided to make a morning of visiting these hot springs as well Pohoiki Warm Springs a couple miles away at Isaac Hale Beach Park. These springs are very large...you can see fish below you as you are floating or swimming. Some people were using snorkels...I would not recommend, as we opted not to put... More

We made our way here from Waikoloa (about two hours). It had been a rainy day, but that stopped as we arrived. The thermal heated pool has a sand and rock bottom. It is protected from the Pacific by a sea wall that does have an open passage through it. The depth is about 3 to 5 feet and the... More

The lava pool is awesome but it's flooded with tourists and elderly on tour busses. The pool itself is warm.

As with all the other beaches on The Big Island, you have to cross the lava rock to get into the water. The current was strong the day we visited so you had to be careful

We were directed here from the staff at Klimos where we stayed. Its a large rock pool protected from the ocean by a wall which when the surfs up gets gets cooler with breaking waves. The floor is sandy with some small rocks. There were about 60 people there but its large enough not to feel crowded. Great for a... More

Another stop on our drive. Pool was decent size and fed from the ocean. There wasn't anyone snorkelling in the pool. We took of our shoes and waded in to our knees and were surprised to find the water about bath tub warm!

We visited the Hot Pond for a quick relaxing swim before going to the Kalapana Farmer's Market. The water is always a comfortable temperature and there are enough Fish to keep my 11 year old busy snorkeling. There is usually a lifeguard on duty and a refreshing mix of age groups on hand. This is Puna District so if you... More
