The 'Queens Bath' of Hawaii
Found after a 10 minute walk nearby a waterfall, with breathtaking views of rocky landscape of lava rock, The Queens Bath is a natural tide pool surrounded by igneous rock, found at the north shore of Kaua'i Island, Hawaii.
Made up beautifully of turquoise and emerald water, set in black lava! GORGEOUS!
The Queens Bath was formed when a lava tube collapsed and filled with fresh water, supplied by natural springs. This used to be known as Keanalele, as a royal bathing place, in Hawaiian history.
With all the beauty that The Queens Bath possesses, like most natural pools, it is quite dangerous and must be approached with caution. It is most dangerous in the Winter time (October-May) as it possesses high waves and several mood changes.
However, it is still one of Hawaiis favourite summertime attractions! As it is safe to visit and swim in when the waves are up to 4ft high or less. (Do check surf reports before visiting.)
The Queens Bath has calm waters during the summer and tropical fish can be found in it, with Hawaiian sea urchins and angel fish.
Certainly one of the amazing designs of nature! Pencil a safe visit to The Queens Bath on your summer escape to Hawaii! Aloha!!!
