Lydgate Beach Park
A.K.A. Kamalani Playground • Photo by Wasabi
Do you want to feed fish or learn to snorkel...here is the spot! Frequently calm conditions and man made ponds allow swimming on almost any day. There is a large grass field, ideal for kite flying and frisbee, a large playground for the kids, covered tables for picnics, bike paths and plenty of parking. Public parking, bathrooms and showers (3 Locations).
This is the most complete ocean park on Kauai. Great playground for the kids!
Strong currents. Dangerous waves breaking on outer reefs. Sharp coral and slippery rocks.
Sandy and grassy shoreline protected by rocky jetties. Mixed reef and sand underwater.
Not Good For
Surfing and bodyboarding are somewhat limited here. With inconsistent sand bars and unseen rocks and reef, Lydgate is not your best wave riding option.
The Kamalani Playground is an on-going community project supported and maintained by The Friends of Kamalani and Lydgate Park. The Friends built and maintain a children's playground, an interactive bridge, and a pavilion. For information on how you can help, visit www.kamalani.org.
