My husband and I spent a couple of hours here to avoid the rain in Kapaa. The weather was perfect. The beach was great. The only negative was the lack of shade. There were some tourists but it was really s local beach.

We visited this very nice beach in the afternoon. Easy to find a nice spot on the grass close to the water. Easy access to the water in a protected little bay and not as overrun as Poipu. This is worth the slight detour from...More

We were told to check out Salt Pond Beach because it had great snorkeling -- it doesn't -- however, it's a great little beach! Clear water, shade trees, restrooms, close parking -- a quiet, relaxing place to spend half a day.

A mixture of locals and tourists with camping as well: lifeguard, decent restrooms, and often calm waters with snorkeling. There is also a kids area that is very safe. It does get crowded on weekends. Beautiful sunny spot!

I don’t particularly love this beach but it is perfect for families with young children. The water is shallow and the reefs keep the water calm. It is kind of cool to watch the waves crash over the reefs making small natural waterfalls.
