Absolutely beautiful and stunning views at Queens Bath always best to go at low tide and try to be aware of the tide change

We had heard this was a must-see place to visit by a few friends who have visited Kauai before, but apparently March isn't the ideal time to do so. It is up north in Princeville. The parking is very limited, but we waited around and...More

This hike is very slippery during the rainy season and not for inexperienced hikers. Children should be watched closely when near the water

Breath taking view! And it’s free! Strongly recommend! Just MAKE SURE you wear proper footwear! We were clueless so we were wearing flip flops! What a challenge and we looked ridiculous! We’re lucky the trail wasn’t wet!

Huge chain link fence that was locked closed. No path to get around. Bummed that we came here and couldn’t do the hike or see queens bath. There was a sign that said it’s closed.
