Are water shoes recommended for a visit to the baths, or can you use flip flops. Taking the ferry over for the day.
Keens would be even better.
I wouldn't chance flip flops.
I have done them in a variety of shoes. My favorite are Reef sandals and bare foot. I love my Keens, but they fill up with sand in the closed toe area. My Saloman water shoes do as well. Reef Sandals have a good grip and don't fill up with sand. If you have good strong feet, that is best.
I agree with ACB, we barefooted it and it was perfect.
Agree with Sandy - flip flops are a recipe for broken ankles or worse
I rocked the old-school Aqua Sox for the Baths and they were perfect. My barefoot family found the moss on the rocks really slippery. You would most likely lose your flips before you even got to the Baths. One other time the Aqua Sox would've been perfect, if I'd worn them, was on White Bay. We swam into the Soggy Dollar barefoot, and my dad wanted to go to Ivan's too. The path between the two parts of White Bay is sharp, hot rock.
