Description

Salt Pond Bay Trail is a dirt road that leads down to Salt Pond Bay. It ends at a white sand beach with access to Rams Head Point and Ram Head Trail. There are pit toilets at this location as well as picnic tables, and excellent snorkeling when north shore swell comes in. There is room for about 12-15 cars in the parking lot and the transit (the public bus) runs from the parking lot every hour on the hour from 8-6 pm. This is an excellent place to spend the day on the beach with the family.

Flora & Fauna

Dry climate - mostly shrubby bushes and cacti. Beware of Christmas Bush, which is poisonous.
