This area of rock that has been worn away by the Atlantic Ocean’s force is just south of the famous Glass Window Bridge that was the subject of a painting by Winslow Homer.
The guide books remind visitors that the waves can come in fast at high tide and to be careful if there are “swells.” We found out that even at low tide, the waves can be big enough to drench people (and our phones/cameras) standing above the “Baths.”
Relative calm, between waves
Queen’s Bath filling with huge waves at low tide.
Here’s another look at the huge waves that were filling the Queen’s Bath, just a few hundred feet south of the “Glass Window Bridge.”. This was at low tide, too!
See how high these cliffs are, at Queen’s Bath on Eleuthera! Just after I took this picture, the waves came up to drench me.
You can find the Queen’s Baths on the Atlantic side of Queen’s Highway, at the Heritage Marker just south of the bridge.
