North Kauai Queen's Bath is one of the most unique and refreshing swimming areas on the island. The "pool" is carved into a lava shelf and is the size of several large swimming pools.
The government has recently closed this site during the winter months due to lawsuits from tourist who have been hurt from natural conditions.
A small, freshwater stream flows nearby and is the perfect place to rinse off after sunning and swimming in the Bath. Views of the ocean and the rocky shoreline here are fantastic. When the surf is cooperating, usually in the summer months, the water is calm and crystal clear. However, if the surf is pounding you can't even find the pool.
Even when the surf is fairly calm, waves crash on the rocks shooting spray high into the air. Only enter the pool when the surf is calm Use caution as the rocks are often slippery Do not swim in the open ocean here due to strong currents and rocks. Use extreme caution on the path to the pool as it is often slippery and wet DO NOT dive into the pool due to large rocks and shallow areas.
