Lydgate Beach Park is a well maintained beach park found in the Kapaa area on the east shore of Kaua'i. It's very much a family beach so expect families and kids here. On the weekends it will really pack them in too, but you can move away from the protected pools if you want some peace and quiet.

Those protected pools are what make this place so special. It's one very large man made pool in the ocean with a stone wall to keep any major wave action out (but it's not watertight so the water filters in and out just fine). Inside of that big pool is a second pool that's even more calm and perfect for small kids.

Not only does this beach have full facilities with bathrooms, showers, picnic tables, and a lifeguard, but it also has large grassy areas and two amazing parks. In fact, we've made separate articles just for the parks. If you have kids, they'll love playing at Lydgate Kamalani Park I which has slides and stuff to climb on and is located just behind the protected ocean pool area (other side of the parking lot).

hen, be sure you also take them to nearby Lydgate Kamalani Park II which is a massive fort type structure with slides, bridges, and more stuff to climb on. It's a pretty amazing play area.

Behind that is the Aston Aloha Beach Hotel so guests staying there will have easy access to this excellent beach.
