Salt Pond Bay

Why Salt Pond Bay
Salt Pond Bay is a conveniently-located white sand beach for those residing in, or visiting the Coral Bay side of the island. It is also an excellent alternative for those seeking calm water on days when the surf is breaking on the north.

Getting There
To reach Salt Pond Bay take route 107 heading south for 3.9 miles starting from the Moravian Church in Coral Bay. The quarter mile Salt Pond Bay Trail to the beach begins at the parking area.

Snorkeling
The best snorkeling is along the rocky eastern coastline. The Blue Cobblestone Beach "Best Snorkel" can be accessed by snorkeling along this coast toward the Blue Cobblestone Beach.
