“Good boogie boarding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

But be careful those waves will get you! And take you away on the current! It happened to us and also my daughter in-law was getting scared because she went too far out and got repeatedly hit by the big waves. Caution Caution Caution in the big ocean

“Lydgate State Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

This is a great place to take the little ones swimming. There is a protected area that is perfect for them. Also, restrooms and a play area make it a fun way to spend the day with no hassles.
The larger swimming area is fun for anyone who enjoys swimming in tropical ocean waters.

“Great family beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Protected lagoon area great for kids and snorkeling with a lifeguard.. Picnic tables and restrooms. A fun little park across the street with mazes. We packed a picnic lunch and made a day of this trip from Poipu. The drive was about 30 minutes from Poipu.

“Nice beach with safe snorkeling area.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

The surf was rougher than I expected on the island of Kauai, so I appreciated the area behind the rock way for safer snorkeling. The water was not very clear but we were able to see fish near the rock wall.

“Nice Swim”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

Great place for lap swimming. But on the weekends the park is really full so you may not have all the room you would like to swim and be sure to keep a close eye on your beach stuff! Best time to go is early am or weekdays when the kids are in school
