Disclaimer: do not attempt this hike after a good rain if you don’t like getting dirty. It’s a pretty steep and slippery incline most of the way down so I would recommend shoes with traction. Also, check the tide report so you can plan a...More

It is beautiful, but it can be dangerous. But really that’s life. I recommend going down, it is a little bit of a hike down so watch your step, once you get down to the cliff you go to the left and around the corner...More

This was one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. If you can get down the trail.., it is amazing. The trail wasn’t bad for my husband and I.. but you better have good balance. You will be stepping down paths with tree...More

We loved this place! We went at low tide (because otherwise it's even more dangerous!) and had an amazing time. The water was calm and clear. It was a longer hike than I expected, and very muddy...but that was part of the adventure!

The trail was extremely muddy. I fell twice and am thankful I only bruised my side and my ego. I would recommend no flip flops when muddy and grab a walking stick! You come to a beautiful water fall, then to the “toilet bowl.” The...More

Although it is advised not to come here in the winter, the surf was much calmer on the North Side so we decided to head over here. WE found plenty of families leaving with young children and they all concurred that both the water in...More

Be sure to put Queen's Bath on your list of Things to Do in Kauai! The hike is not super easy but well worth it!! It's muddy and a bit tricky in parts but anyone without any health conditions or limitations can do it. Best...More
