Salt Pond Beach

Named for its traditional Hawaiian salt collecting ponds located near the beach. With its gentle waves rolling in year-round, Salt Pond is a popular spot for family outings and perfect for young boogie boarders. Relax under the coconut trees in the large grassy lawn adjacent to the beach, or have some fun building a sand castle at the waters edge. Generally snorkelers will find clear water at each end of the crescent beach.
