Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at Salt Pond

The Salt Pond is a beautiful area with restrooms, water, and showers. It is perfect for getting your feet wet with snorkeling or shorediving for the first time! Take a picnic lunch and enjoy the beach between dives. Follow Highway 50 West to mile 17 (In Hanapepe), and make a left on Highway 543. Follow the signs to Salt Pond Beach Park.

A pure sand beach greets you! Heading West, it is clearly marked where to turn left off the main highway. Notice that the swimming area is well protected.

I tried snorkeling here but there were lots of ocean motion and it made the water cloudy. Only saw a couple of fish. I'm sure it would have been better at a more calmer time.

Visibility not that good, 20 feet max. Explored out to breakers, 1/4 mile and nothing over 20 feet deep. Disappointing.
