Big disappointment. We stopped at this attraction. There was graffiti everywhere. There was some information about how the pond was created that was interesting. Not much to see.

We were so close to our condo we decided to take a peek, not really something special to see or do but when in Kauai you must take in EVERYTHING!! Turns out to be kind of cool though. Only took about 10 minutes. But anything...More

This is listed as a World Heritage site, so if you're close and not in a hurry, you should definitely swing by to check it out. We got out, parked, hung out for 5 minutes and left. I was glad it was only a 10...More

Accessible from either the Nawiliwili harbor side on Hulemalu Road or from the Kauai community College on Puhi Road. There is an overlook that looks down on the pond that is being renovated and cleared. New signs explain the history of the ponds very well.

Great views from the lookout. It was very close to our condo, so definitely worth the short trip. The Land Owner is cleaning things up there, so hopefully things will look nicer in the future.

Nice stop off to take pictures. Beautiful views. There’s a plaque that discusses some of the history of the fish pond at the pull off.

Wouldn't go out of the way for this, but if you're in the area, it's quite interesting. Pretty views, but, you're on Kauai and everything is pretty! Very limited parking. GPS actually took us past it! Easy to miss!

Nothing much to do or see here, but it can be worth a quick stop with the right weather. On a sunny or partly cloudy day it's quite pretty. Full clouds and it's just meh. The overlook area is obviously a frequent place for people...More
