This is a quiet beach that is child friendly and great for families. We snorkled and swam and played in the water for several hours. It is called salt pond beach because right beside it there is an area where the ancient practice of making salt from the ocesn is practiced by a group of people trained in the art.

We live in Hanapepe so Salt Pond Beach Park is our local beach. It's a very popular beach for locals and a great place to stop on your way to or from Waimea Canyon. It is a life guarded beach, protected by a breakwater of rocks. We like to drive down the back side of the runway and park right... More

We were here on a Friday morning for a couple of hours and had the beach practically to ourselves. The facilities were clean and the beach had great small waves for kids.

Great place to go on the west side. Lifeguard. Relatively protected, though not without some waves and rocks. Restrooms and a food truck are there.

We stayed here for 5 days and camped on the left side, right next to the salt pond. It was very windy but we had the best view from our tent, palm trees and the ocean! There was a cleaner there every day so the bathrooms were clean and the trash cans empty. Geckos in the bathroom and plenty of... More

This is such a better alternative to Poipu beach. Not crowded, lifeguards, bathrooms, showers. The tide can be wild at times, but manageable if good swimmers. We had a blast here and will return before we head home.

I stayed here for a full week camping. It's a little windy but I liked it. Good facilities, cold shower outside, electricity to cook on the pavilions and I met some kind people. Swimming is good.

This beach has nice surf--can be strong when coming in and it can be windy (due to being on the South Shore) but it's a beautiful beach for swimming as long as you can handle the waves. Lifeguarded. The sand is a touch coarse, but it's very clean and there are a few pavilions where you can get out of... More

Usually a really nice place to go but surf has been rough across whole island so please pay heed to warning signs. We took our grandson there today. He had a blast but again had to pay heed to water conditions. Never turn back on ocean , it can be very unforgiving. Beach time can be fun so pay heed... More

Beautiful beach with great swimming and not many people. Weather tends to be drier here though we did get caught in a downpour once but that was fun anyways!!
