Kauai : The Queen's Bath

The lava holes are filled with seawater and opening up for natural pools with outstanding views. The problem is that the surf splashes in softly most of the time, but big waves come in sets… So after a 20 minute period of calm, a 4m wave appears, seemingly out of nowhere. 28 people have already died there, by walking along the ledge used to access it. 

First, we were scared of crossing. But watching kids coming back and forth, we followed some locals to the other side.

Here's the deadly ledge that you need to cross, to reach the pools on the other side.

Creepy signs all over.

But we did our best, to cross.

And reached the beautiful rock formations on the other side.

Nice, huh?

This pool is the so-called Queen's Bath. Filled up with seawater and emptied over and over, by the strong swell.

Time for sunset, time to cross the ledge once again… Until safe terrain.

The mini-trail between the road and the cliff is also quite charming, with some waterfalls and greenery over the reddish terrain.
