You are visiting the beautiful island of Kauai for the first time and you want to experience all that a Hawaiian beach has to offer. Salt Pond Beach offers a plethora of activities for people of all ages to enjoy. No matter if you are into swimming sailing or just out for a family day, this beach offers a day of fun and excitement.
Water Sports at Salt Pond Beach Park
Salt Pond is a little different than other beaches you will find in Hawaii, as it is not popular with the surfers. It is encompassed by an outside reef which protects the bay from water swells. The lack of surfers allows visitors to enjoy many other activities.
The calm waters make it an excellent place to go snorkeling. There are several guides who give lessons in the area. Snorkelers will see the most sea life by looking along the shallow sides of the bay. The waters are also mild enough to go swimming or paddling. The combination of wind and calm waters make Salt Pond Beach Park the perfect place to learn to sail.
Salt Pond Beach gets its name because it is right next to the manmade salt flats on the island. The flats are impressive to look at, and you may see salt harvesters working to produce traditional Hawaiian sea salt. This beach has some interesting rock formations and, like all beaches in Hawaii, offers a breathtaking view of the water and palm trees. It is a great place to watch the sunset and it is not overrun with people, so you can enjoy a romantic picnic when night falls.
Camping is allowed on Salt Pond Beach and it is a great place to sleep, because you get the sound and smell of the ocean without the overwhelming sound of crashing waves. There are bathrooms with showers as well as picnic tables at this site.
