ACTIVITIES: Swimming, snorkeling, picnics, and beach lounging. AMENITIES: Parking, restrooms, picnic benches with shelters, barbeques, and showers. It is more laid back and local-style then near the more developed resort regions, making for a nice change of pace.
There are many picnic benches and shelters throughout the 5.9 acre park, making it a great destination for a South side rest stop.
The Salt Pond: In Hawaiian language salt making is called "pa'akai" (pronounced as pa-a kigh) the name refers to the solid part of ocean.
An outer break wall protecting the pool here is a combination of naturally cemented sand and lava rock creating a barrier from the open ocean.
Even Hawaiian monk seals, a native endemic mammal, occasionally land on the beach to rest.
Unfortunately, no same day booking available online.
All reservations have a 48 hour cancellation policy. All costs, except gratuity (tips), are included in price.
AT A GLANCE: HIGHLIGHTS: The calmest ocean access in this region featuring a protected inner swimming area. Swimming is only recommended in the protected pool in front of the lifeguard tower, tides and surf can affect the currents inside the pool.
