Salt pond is a nice short slice of sand that has a few things going for it. It's protected by rock outcrops on both ends so you have protected areas where the open ocean swell won't knock you around, also when it's rainy and dreary at other spots on island salt pond sun will shine right through. There is a... More

You don't always find a good beach with good parking on Kauai but this one fit the bill. Nice salt pond next door too. Nice facilities there also. Great for a day to relax.

This was a beautiful beach with nice white sand and a protected place for the keiki to swim. There was a lifeguard station for the main part of the beach. This was our favorite beach!

Great place to swim, low waves and not many people when we were there. Very salty though! Good for kids and away from the tourist beaches

We have been to Salt Pond Beach many times on this trip 2014. We had never heard of it before on our other trips to Kauai. It is a beach where a lot local Hawaiians go and have Birthday Parties and other special occasions. Some just get together with their family and visit, swim, snorkel and cook out. We have... More

This is a great swimming beach staffed with a lifeguard. Spent an afternoon here and the water was calm and good for snorkeling and swimming even when the trade winds were blowing. Highly recommend!

With so many beach breaks around Kauai, this one is a nice large swimming beach. It is a long beach with lots of sand, fewer rocks, and a shallow cove for swimming. Bring any items you needs, no services here except for a restroom and taco truck (likely seasonal).

We thought this beach would be busy because one of the locals told us that its a good place to watch the sunset, but it was like we had the whole beach to ourselves. The sunset was gorgeous and peaceful. This would've been a wonderful beach to relax at and spend a full day but we only found out about... More

This was a really fun beach! We were able to see a monk seal here. They are endangered, so you’re not allowed to get close to them. The beach is a small crescent shape, and there is a neat rock outcrop that makes some areas good for swimming/wading. It wasn’t crowded at all.

Want to get away from the crowds to watch a tranquil sunset? Pack your beach chairs into the car, and go to Salt Pond Beach Park around 6:45pm-7:00pm for a 7:15pm sunset. Park near the airport landing strip, and settle in. Very few people around, usually some local kids frolicking in the water. We went here after eating dinner from... More
