Heading north on Highway 56 the road begins to move more toward the west than north. Our next stop is called Queen's Bath and is located inside the high class neighborhood of Princeville.Queen's Bath is a large natural pool which has been carved out of a lava shelf. The ocean acts as its filter which makes it dangerous to visit during the winter months when the surf is rougher. In the summer months the water is often calmer and you can see into the pool even without goggles. Small fish and other ocean life enjoy the beauty of Queens Bath and you will meet them if you decide to take a dip. Occasionally the government will close the bath due to dangerous conditions. This location is not without danger as many people have been swept into the ocean by rogue waves. Proceed at your own caution.
