I wouldn't waste my time at this park. Yes is has public restrooms, and camping is allowed, but it looked more like some folks are living there rather than just camping. There are a ton of wild chickens, so be prepared to listen to them...More

Great beach, not too busy. There’s pavilions and a life guard. A monk seal jut happened to be sunning there that day.

Great Park. Keep your distance from the tent campers. The beach and water are very pleasant. Clean Bathrooms. Midweek the park is never over crowed like some other beach's on Kauai.

For a day at the beach, this is a good place to go and take the family. Sit on the sand, stay on the grass, use the facilities. Camp if you have a permit.

Salt Pond Beach was our favorite beach on Kauai, The beach is shielded from the unsafe currents by curved walls of volcanic rock. This makes it safe to swim and snorkel. The beach is especially beautiful at sunset. We went during the week and had...More
