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.

How Guidescore Works

Creating our proprietary Guidescore is a multifaceted process. We carefully curate a selection of reviews from the travel industry's most respected tourism experts. We then assign independent scores to the reviews, and apply a weighted average to encapsulate the range of opinions found on each service. The end result is a single score that captures the essence of our evaluation in one Guidescore. Each activity, tour, and accommodation available for booking on Guide of Hawaii only receives a Guidescore when we've aggregated at least three critical travel sources.

Why "weighted average" is important

Guidescore is a weighted average in that we assign more importance, or weight, to some sources and travel publications than others, based on their quality and overall stature. In addition, for tours and activities, we also normalize the resulting scores (akin to "grading on a curve" in schools), which ensures our final grades don't cluster together.

Interpreting Guidescore

Each unique Guidescore can range from A-F, with higher scores indicating better overall reviews. To help visitors instantly compare, we also provide a summary of our findings, alongside an aggregation date, that shows three of our most trusted online travel review sources: Tripadvisor, Yelp, and Google.
