Island Hopping in The Bahamas…with a twist

Imagine this, therapeutic natural hot tubs made of limestone and filled with the crystal clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean. That’s exactly what you’ll find when visiting the Queen’s Bath in Eleuthera. Located right beyond the eye-catching Glass Window Bridge, as you head into Gregory Town is nature’s idea of a day spa. Over many years the crashing waves of the ocean caused the rocks to erode, creating these pools that are heated by the sun. How cool is that? A geology lesson and relaxation all in one.
The best time to visit the Queen’s Bath would be during the low or medium tide. As we all know, nature is sometimes unpredictable, and these natural pools can fill up very quickly if the waves are rough. If you decide to explore during high tide, it can be very dangerous. Remember, the lower the tide the better.
You should definitely wear tennis or water shoes. The walk to the Queen’s Bath is very rocky and rigid. Sandals or flip-flops would not be ideal for this amazing adventure because they can easily tear. Of course, if you’re visiting, you know that there is a possibility that you may get wet, so wear a swimsuit or anything you’re comfortable getting a little or a lot soaked.
Sunscreen is a must, not only for outdoor activities but everyday wear. You have to bring a camera! The Bahamas is so picturesque, so that really goes without saying. The views overlooking the Atlantic Ocean are unbelievable. You really have to see it to appreciate it. Lastly, I’d suggest inviting your adventurous friends and family to join in on the fun at the Queen’s Bath. However, this experience may not be suitable for small children.
Considering that the ocean water fills the baths, definitely anticipate meeting a sea creature also enjoying these natural saunas. Be sure to keep an eye out for sea urchins and small fish. Though, expect to be blown away by the view at the Queen’s Bath and the relaxing experience nature has provided.
