Amazing day here with the kids. There are two swimming areas in the ocean that are encircled by a ring of rocks that protect them from the waves. Smaller area is shallow and great for young kids (fish in there too!) the larger area is bigger and deeper and had fish as well. My daughter saw some puffer fish, blue... More

This is a lovely park with excellent facilities and lots of room to find your own space on the beach or in the park. If you want to swim in the protected area, the beach is a little crowded, but the swimming there is great and feels perfectly safe. If you just want to set up to read and enjoy... More

These protected pools make a nice safe spot for snorkeling or swimming for all ages. They are filled with fish (though limited in variety) and just a calm way to enjoy an otherwise rough side of the island. With okay facilities and showers, both grass and sand beach, and picnic tables it's also good for a picnic. The only thing... More

Visited Lydgate Beach park and went snorkeling in the protected pool because the seas were very rough elsewhere. A few waves occasionally spilled over the but the large swimming area was calm enough for young children and the elderly. A few colorful tropical fish will keep novice snorkelers interested for a while. But the pleasant surprise for advanced snorkelers is... More

We snorkeled here two times; first time was a total bust--visibility was -0- Second time visibility was pretty good, but still not great. We did see lots of fish, just not clearly. The best thing is that it is a totally safe spot with nice bathrooms and outdoor shower area.

We came here to check out the sunrise. It was peaceful and beautiful. Not many people there that time of the morning, so it made it excellent for photos.

What a beautiful, safe, family friendly place to visit and swim at. Unlike the over-crowded beaches on the South Shore, and North Shore, Lydgate Beach is family-friendly and highly accessible.

We chose this location on the island to get married. It was beautiful and serene. Great place to have picnic lunch or just enjoy the beach and ocean. Beautiful spot.
