Make sure you bring an umbrella (there's not too many shady options), goggles, food, snorkel gear and sunscreen! The waves are a bit rough for kids but the water is calmer to swim in in the salt pond with the fishies. There is a life guard and restrooms nearby.

Great place for swimming and snorkeling in protected beach. My 11 year old loved the fish and the quiet waters.

This is a great beach for families. The water is calm, the beach has nice sand. There are picnic tables and bathrooms available, as well as shade spots to stay cool. Bring beach chairs, boogie boards, towels, and food and drink. Easy parking and have fun. When the kids get tired of the ocean, they can cut across the grass... More

When we arrived, we saw people with fins and masks swimming in what appeared to be rather shallow water. Lame! Until we got in the water. WOW! no buffeting from the waves and no noticeable undertow. And fish everywhere, especially near the rocks. Love this beach!

So we set out to visit this beach area because of the protected area and easy swimming for the little ones. Yes, that is or was all correct until my 8 year old came out of the water with a jellyfish latched onto her thigh. When I approached the lifeguard, he advised that the east shore has many of them....

This is an interesting beach with a rock enclosed swimming area. The time pushes waves over the rocks, and there are some rocks that you need to navigate on the ocean floor while out, but it is a great swimming area. And, there are a lot of fish. This would be a nice place to snorkel because lots of fish... More

When the rest of the ocean is roaring, Lydgate is very calm due to the couple of pools. There is a smaller pool for the kids, and a larger, deeper pool for the grown ups. It was great for a nice little splash around without being worried about being swept out to sea.

This beach park is great. There is plenty of parking and very close to the Kauai Beach Resort. There is a place for kids to swim as well as adults. It is worthy of your time to say the least. The views are incredible. We loved it!

The lifeguard protected beach is perfect for families with small children. There is an area perfect for first time snorkeling.
