My husband and I always come here when we visit for a relaxing day of snorkeling. We visit during the winter so the north shore can be tricky but Salt Pond is always a success! This perfect little cove is perfect for snorkeling and swimming and we even got to see some seals! It's calm and very pretty and would... More

This is one of our favourite beaches on Kauai. Nice stretch of sand, good for kids to swim, water isn't too rough. Very relaxed atmosphere. Love it!

We were most lucky today to visit the park and see 4 Monk seals on the beach sunning themselves. The park is nice and not crowded. The beach is a little tough for walking but pretty to look at. There are ample facilities for picnics and sunbathing with several rest rooms. The water is very clear. A nice place to... More

We loved snorkeling and relaxing at Salt Pond Beach Park. Ample beach space as it is quiet and hidden.

The beach is very nice, with a shallow lagoon on the left side and some nice snorkeling on the right side. There are showers, picnic tables, restrooms, etc. Kauai weather can vary from one part of the island to the other, so if you want to try a beach on the west side (near Waimea) this is a good one...

We came here, curious of the name. The rock formations were quite interesting and made great shots. This is also a very popular spot for locals in the late afternoon.

One of my favorite beaches on Kauai. Skip the turnoff for the park, follow the sign for the airport. Drive past the heliport to the end of the road. Park next to the beach. If you have small kids the lagoon at this spot is perfect. Enjoy👍

Very low-key beach, with lifeguard - though the cove is protected by a reef so it's already very safe! There are (rudimentary) change rooms, barbecues (BYO briquettes), picnic tables and a couple of shelters. There's usually a taco truck there for lunch, too! Great spot to bring a book and a towel and while away the hours. Snorkeling is poor,... More

Beautiful beach with lots of covered areas for picnics. A local's beach. Rocks have shells and interesting sea life.
