feel like royalty in The Queen's BAths
Nestled on the rugged Atlantic coast of Eleuthera, the Queen’s Baths is a natural wonder that promises an unparalleled experience to all its visitors. This picturesque spot boasts a series of turquoise pools that have been carved out of the rocks by the relentless force of the ocean waves. This hidden gem of the Bahamas is waiting to be explored by those who want to escape the tourist crowds and experience the natural beauty of the islands.
The Queens Baths or the Hot Tubs can be found 0.6 miles south of Glass Window Bridge, on the Atlantic side of the island. Carved by centuries of waves eroding the rocks, these natural pools are filled with a myriad of shells, and small sea life that washes over from the Atlantic side. Once the ocean settles, this crystal clear water is warmed by the sun, creating a bath-like temperature tidal pool that’s perfect for soaking. Best time to visit the hot tubs is during low or medium tide. We recommend you wear water or tennis shoes to protect your feet.

The stunning views of the crystal-clear water and the surrounding cliffs make for an ideal backdrop for capturing Instagram-worthy shots. But, the real highlight of this place is the natural pools that offer a unique swimming experience. These pools are filled with salt water that cascades from the ocean, and it’s a treat to take a dip in them.
The journey to the Queen’s Baths is not for the faint-hearted, but it’s an adventure in itself. It involves a short hike through the rocky terrain, but the effort is worth it. Once you reach the spot, you will be greeted by the sound of crashing waves and the cool breeze. It’s a surreal experience to see the natural pools up close and witness the power of the ocean that has carved out this beautiful spot. It’s no surprise that the Queen’s Baths is one of the most sought-after destinations on Eleuthera.
As you explore the area around the pools, you will come across many hidden caves and crevices that add to the charm of the place. You can spend hours exploring these nooks and crannies, admiring marine life, and listening to the sounds of the ocean. The Queen’s Baths is also a popular spot for cliff jumping, but be cautious as the ocean can be unpredictable at times.
