The Queen’s Bath, located in Princeville, on the north shore of Kauai, Hawaii, is a gorgeous and unique pool that’s separated from the ocean by lava rock. Water spills over the rocks to refresh the pool with water, and even some sea creatures live there.

The pool was named the Queen’s Bath because it was, theoretically, once used as a royal bathing place.

In the summer, the tide pool is a beautiful and romantic place to visit. During the warmer months, the waters are generally calmer and waves make it a great swimming spot. Visitors are encouraged to check the daily surf report — and are warned to be extra cautious to avoid the pool on days when waves reach above four feet.

At These Beaches, You’ll Find Sand That’s Naturally Green

  At These Beaches, You’ll Find Sand That’s Naturally Green Seeing green at the beach is usually reserved for swaying palm trees or seaweed that washes ashore.&nbsp;Found in such varied destinations as Norway and Guam, the grains of naturally green sand contain crystalline particles called olivine — a heavy green silicate that’s not easily washed out to sea. And the result is lake and ocean-front beaches with a verdant hue.

The winter, however, is a slightly different story. The season is marked with unpredictable tides, which are pretty hazardous even for experienced surfers and swimmers, let alone tourists who don’t know much about the ocean.

While the lava shelf that protects the pool from the ocean tides is around 10 to 15 feet high in most areas, many waves in the winter can reach at least 12 to 15 feet, leaving very little protection.

According to HawaiiGaga, there have been seven drownings at the pool between 1970 and 2012. Other visitors have been injured by unexpected waves and slippery mud trails leading to the pool. In order to deter tourists from trying to swim in dangerous conditions, locals have put up warning signs, including one that claims 28 people have died there.
