This beach is amazing place to take kids - there is a great, protected area for them to play, learn to snorkel, swim, etc. And there is plenty of slightly more exciting beach for adults too! Perfect family spot. Good facilities too.

Took the path from Lydgate to the south for a nice 3 mile RT stroll along the beach at sunrise. Was very nice. saw several whales breaching along the way.

Today the wind was up a bit, but the breaker protected swim areas remained calm. The sand beach is clean and great for sun bathing. There are separate children and adult swim areas under lifeguard supervision. Snorkeling is fun, equipment not available here, because large blue fish have been stocked for viewing. Walkways add to the options as do a... More

This is just a nice spot to relax, let the kids swim, or snorkel and enjoy a lazy afternoon. The beach is long and has bathrooms and showers, camping, and a protected kids swimming area and snorkeling area. There are grassy areas to relax, and plenty of sand. Plenty of parking and no fee to enter.

This beach & park has beautiful views, convenient amenities such as washroom facilities, & a huge adventure playground to keep children entertained after they have finished swimming. There is an easy beach walk on lovely golden sand & a safe & interesting cove where many tropical fishes can be observed. I would recommend that you pack a lunch & plenty... More

This beach park has a really big and cool playground area. Great for young kids. The beach are area has a protected swimming area for adults or larger kids and another smaller and shallow area for the really young ones. This and Poipu beach park are the best for kids. I'd go to whichever is closer as they are comparable... More

Lydgate is on the east side, so the snorkeling is best in the morning up until the early afternoon. Lava rock walls make for a calm swimming pool and there's fun fish schools to follow around. It's an easy entry for snorkeling, no pesky rocks on the bottom scraping up your knees, and practically no waves at all. Bathrooms, post-snorkel... More

Took my wife here based on local suggestion, and it was a hit. #1...free! Walled off swimming areas give you a safe place to gain snorkeling skills while still allowing a view of all kinds of undersea life. The facilities were good and clean, plenty of parking, and easy to get to. Recommend going early in the day as this... More
