Fodor's Expert Review Queen's Bath

Princeville and Kilauea Body Of Water/Waterfall Fodor's Choice
A tropical path tucked away in a North Shore neighborhood winds its way down to the oceanfront, where a large tide pool has been carved into the dark lava rock creating nature’s version of an infinity pool. It takes some dexterity (and reef shoes) to get there, but once in you can dawdle like a regal queen, emerging only to scramble up the rocks for a short cliff dive back in. Every now and again a wave breaks the barrier, sending squealing bathers asunder. Be careful, though: October through May brings big surf, and people have been swept off the rocks and have drowned. Look for green sea turtles swimming in the surf beyond the pool.
