All reviews salt pond bay great hike rocky beach bring water favorite hike moderate hike lots of water high cliffs crashing waves proper footwear barrel cactus start early well worth the effort awesome views blue stone hiking shoes surrounding islands
This is a semi-strenuous hike. Bring plenty of water. We brought about 2 quarts for three of us and should have brought more. There’s not much shade, and a lot of hills and rocky terrain.

Beautiful hike, follow Salt Pond Beach to the very end and you will...More
Amazing views and definitely a trip highlight. We got lost a few times along the trail but were able to find our way, and it was well worth the effort. Very peaceful and barely anyone else along the trail. Highly recommended!

Too late for the original question. You can take the bus from Cruz Bay to Salt Pond for $1 a person. The bus leaves at 25 after the hour from Cruz Bay and 10 after the hour from Salt Pond (verify with the bus website, since the schedule can change). The ride is about 45 minutes and there is a scheduled stop at the medical center and stops to pick up and drop off travelers.
