Salt Pond Beach Park Information

Salt Pond Beach Park Information

Salt Pond Beach Park in West Kauai just outside Hanapepe is the only natural salt pond in the state still in production - descendants of ancient Hawaiians still use the salt crystals dried in sun beds to make tangy sea salt.

You need permission to enter the salt-making area but the rest of the crescent-shaped white sand beach is open to the public and it's a great place to windsurf, swim, and collect shells.

A reef partially protects the waters and rocks create a shallow bathing pool, small lagoons, and tidepools to explore. Swimming is generally safe year-round in the clear-watered cove created by two lava shelf rock outcroppings on either end of the pond. Snorkel, swim, scuba dive, fish, or explore the sea life.

Sunsets are particularly stunning, with coconut trees swaying nearby and colorful reflections off gentle waves.

Camping is allowed with a permit and this beach has a lifeguard, picnic area with pavilions and grills, parking, and restrooms with showers.

Located at the end of Route 543 from Hanapepe (take Hwy. 50 past Hanapepe and turn onto Lokokai Rd.).
