We stopped on the way to the Waimea Canyon. It was a nice beach with grassy areas, restrooms and good snorkeling.

The beach was so clean and easy to get to. The water was clear and debris free. We went there several times during our stay in Kauai.

We loved this beach so much we went there for 2 out of 7 of our beach vacation days. Shallow, but not too shallow place to swim and snorkel with an adjacent swimming beach divided by bolders. The waters were warm, deep enough to swim and shallow enough to snorkel with tons and tons of brightly colored fish. Would recommend... More

Son and his family pitched their tent for a super camping experience right on the beach... (Nana and Papa got a room down the road at the Sheraton of course...) Power and basic services and ya just can't beat the price if you are still young enough to rough it..

Salt Pond and other south and west shore beaches don't get the pounding winter surfs that the west and north sides of the island often receive. Great swimming and wonderful sunsets! The sandy bottom with only a few rocky areas don't make for a very fishy snorkeling area.

We visited Salt Pond after spending the morning in Waimea Canyon and found it very pleasant. The beach itself isn't very wide but there weren't big crowds here so it was fine. The sand isn't the powdery variety you will find on other beaches, however it was a good place to sit and watch the sun set. There is a... More

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.
