The Baths (or Batholiths) were formed hundreds of thousands of years ago from liquid hot magma that cooled several kilometers below the earth's crust. Over time, earthquakes and pressure forced the cooled granite to the surface, where they eroded by wind and waves to form tunnels, tidal pools, arches and grottos.
The most famous section of the Baths, the Cathedral room boasts a high ceiling with a sky light. Sun rays reflect off the minerals in the granite and the shallow water pool. There are plenty of wonderful photo ops here!
Folklore says that this beach was so beautiful that they named it Devil's Bay to keep everyone else away. Others say it was named Devil's Bay because of the menacing skull face that some see in one of the boulders that guards the entrance. We say it is our favorite beach in the world.
