Salt Pond Beach Park: A trip to Hanapepe may seem a little dusty and dry, especially after passing the Port Allen area. But remember, you’re in Hawaii, on an island best known for beaches. There are always beautiful coastlines and crystal-clear waters to be found. In fact, just past Hanapepe is the gorgeous Salt Pond Beach Park. Named after the natural sea salt ponds used by generations of Hawaiians, and still used to this day.

Salt Pond Beach Park has a swimming lagoon protected by reef that makes it safe for children and a great place for snorkeling, especially in the winter when the waves are too big on the northern shores. It has full facilities including barbecue grills, showers, and campsites.

There's also a lifeguard at Salt Pond Beach Park. To find it from Kuamaulii Hwy, turn left on Lele Road immediately after mile-marker 17. You’ll see the sign prompting you to turn left. Just under a half mile, as views of the ocean appear, you’ll see a smaller green sign telling you to turn right. This is Salt Pond Road. Take this road to the end and you’re there.

"This beach has some of the whitest sand and clearest water"

I thought it was time to turn around until we stumbled onto this beautiful beach on Kauai’s south side. This beach has some of the whitest sand and clearest water I could hope for.
