A wonderful way to experience the healing waters of the Esalen hot springs is to join us for public night bathing from 1:00 a.m. to 3:00 a.m. Reservations are required and can only be made online. The cost is $35 per person, payable by credit card.

You must book the same day for the evening you wish to visit. Registration opens at 9:00 a.m. PST and can sell out quickly. Reservations cannot be made in advance. Public night bathing is generally available seven days a week depending on weather, with the exception of some public holidays and Esalen events. We do not accept reservations for more than four in a group.

Please bring a towel, a flashlight, and walking shoes. A phone is available at the baths for emergencies.
