We camped here for two nights in April, great spot, the beach is wonderful, lifeguards, showers and electricity in the various shelters. When we arrived the camping area and shelters were mostly full because of a "celebration of life" camp out weekend for a local person. They had some elaborate camps set up. We never felt unwelcomed or uncomfortable in... More

We were in Kauai in June of this year (2014). Stopped and checked the beach out. Liked it so much we went back everyday for about 4 days. They had Junior Life guard training at the time. It still was great! Would recommend it for a 2/3 hour stop to start the day! Even a little food trailer in the... More

We swam here after hiking Waimea Canyon. What a great little beach to cool off and relax. Nice bathrooms, showers to wash off, and easy to get to. Definitely recommend.

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!
