Fodor's Review

A great family spot, Salt Pond Beach Park features a naturally made, shallow swimming pond behind a curling finger of rock where keiki (children) splash and snorkel. This pool is generally safe except during a large south swell, which usually occurs in summer, if at all. The center and western edge of the beach is popular with bodyboarders and bodysurfers. Pavilions with picnic tables offer shade, and there's a campground at the eastern end. On a cultural note,

the flat stretch of land to the east of the beach is the last spot in Hawaii where ponds are used to harvest salt in the dry heat of summer. The beach park is popular with locals and it can get crowded on weekends and holidays. Amenities: lifeguard; parking; showers, toilets. Best For: swimming; sunset; walking.
