Lydgate State Park, Kauai: 5 reviews and 15 photos

  Lydgate Beach
by sswagner

This is a great family beach on the east side of Kauai. The east coast typically gets some large waves and dangerous currents. In response to this, a barrier has been put in place to create two lagoons. One is ideal for children of all ages. There is also an opportunity for snorkeling as fish can get through the barrier. Only the dangerous current is stopped. There are excellent playgrounds, plenty of places for the beach towels, and nice views. The park is well maintained. I overhead fellow travelers rave about this beach as a place to take the family. For those who like the rougher seas, that can be found adjacent to Lydgate Park.

Directions: North of Poipu on Kauai's east coast
