Such an amazing stretch to stroll and enjoy the Pacific coastline. The views, breeze, the sun & surf, it's why we came here and it so close to town, you can be here often. Park & walk the paved walkway, it is great!!!

Terrible, horrible, no good beach! I chose this beach for the tidal pools and it looked really good on the satellite map. However, some catastrophic event occurred and there are massive amounts of driftwood debris strewn about. The tidal pools were clear and calm while...More

It is a nice beach but I don't recommend it for swimming or snorkeling unless you do it in any of the two manmade pools. The waves and currents are very strong which in my opinion, make this beach a little dangerous. The best thing...More

I figured this would be a good place to swim, because of the enclosed swimming areas, but boy was I wrong. The water was filthy. Full of all kinds of debris. The beach was also covered in sticks. This beach is beautiful to look at...More

This is a great place to hang out for families. The areas inside the reef are good for snorkeling (though this trip they were dirty because of the recent rains. Still the kids love the playground here.

Laid back beach behind the Hilton Garden Inn. Great for snorkeling.. We saw puffer fish, tropical varieties, and an eel! It's also whale season and we saw a few breach in the distance!

I stayed in Kauai a month and Lydgate Park is great to spend an afternoon. The main reason you might want to come here is for snorkeling, especially if you have kids - even though you don't have kids, you should check it out, I...More
