The Queen’s Baths or Hot Tubs are a collection of natural pools that border the rugged Atlantic Ocean side of the island, 0.6 miles south of The Glass Window Bridge. They were formed over the years through erosion of the rocks by the dramatic crashing waves waves of the Atlantic Ocean. The water in the pools is filled with shells and small sea life that wash over from the ocean. Once settled, the crystal clear water is warmed by the sun, creating a bath-like temperature and a tidal pool that is perfect for soaking.

Many travelers like stopping by for a quick dip or to relax in the natural saunas. However, do check the tides before you go and only venture in with calm seas and low tides. It can be dangerous during high tides as the pools can fill up quickly and forcefully. The best time to visit the hot tubs is during low or medium tide.

For easy access, you can park near the stone entrance gate on the east side of Queen’s Highway. When visiting, it is better to wear water or tennis shoes.
