Salt Pond Bay reviews
Great beach. Calm waters. Limited shade, so if you need it get there early to save your spot. picnic tables available. Decent hike down to beach. Small snack stand on main road near entrance.
The hike to Rams Head is fantastic. The snorkeling is great, and we even got to see some turtles.
