The Owia Salt Pond is a unique and beautiful ocean fed bathing pool, perched at the northern tip of the windward side of St Vincent. Volcanic rock formations surround the pool and reef fish and coral formations add colour and life to the pool. Above the pond is a peaceful garden, with gazebos, food and drink, and a children’s play area. The park is connected to the pool with approximately 217 steps. A littoral forest is a significant feature of the park and the forest serves to protect the steep slopes rising from the pond to the park. Owia village is home to some of the indigenous people of St. Vincent and the Grenadines – the Calinago.
