This piece of Kauai history is gorgeous. The waves crashing and the flowers were beautiful. The Kings bath was on the other side of the rocks and was a sight to see as well.

The hike down and back is part of the fun ! Wear shoes that are good in slippy mud. Otherwise there are chickens that mock you as you stumble ! Fun little jump off a rock into a pool. If you can, continue to wear...More

The name sounds so serene. That's what I thought before getting there. The entrance to the trail leading to Queen's Bath is just a small opening from the road side, in a residential area. Not much parking. It is a fairly steep trail...not maintained, rocky,...More

This was a must-see for us and we loved it. The hike down IS NOT EASY. Lots of slippery spots. Take your time and you will be fine. Cool walk on the lava over to the bath. Family had fun jumping in.

First off, queen's bath has killed people. So you should only go at low tide and particularly when the seas are calm. With that out of the way, its an awesome destination. The seas crashing onto the volcanic rock around here is amazing to watch...More

Not easy to find as it is in a residential location, and be careful walking as the slope can be trecherous. NO SWIMMING. View on You Tube.

The first couple days of October made it a muddy and somewhat slippery hike, moderately difficult. If yo can’t be flexible to squat or often get on four points you might want to refrain. Children only under you control or confort I would say not...More

Queen's Bath is a must do while in Kauai. It is a nice hike down to the baths. The terrain is very uneven because of all the roots. If it rains the night before, the trail will be very muddy and slippery. Once you get...More

It's a tough hike if it's wet after a rain. Definitely not for your mother in law. I personally would not take a 3 year old unless you are comfortable with holding onto them the whole way. There were many places where we... More

It's only maybe 10 to 15 minutes but it is steepossible and can be muddy. If you are not an avid hiker count on about 20 so you can take your time and be careful :)
