Lydgate State Park Information

Lydgate State Park Information

Lydgate State Park sits along the Coconut coast near the mouth of the Wailua River and includes a rock-walled fishpond that takes the edge off of direct ocean waves. The one-acre beach park offers some of the only protected waters on Kauai's east coast and is a fun place to swim, snorkel, and feed the clouds of fish that will appear if you sprinkle frozen peas in the water for them.

Lydgate also has lifeguards on duty and they, along with the calm and clear water of the enclosed pool, make it a very safe spot.

The sandy beach is also popular for picnics, kite flying, and strolling, and includes restrooms and showers. Volunteers built a playground at this park, where the coconut grove once served as an ancient safe ground for Hawaiians who had broken the law.

It's about 5 miles north of Lihue on Hwy. 56, just before the Kauai Resort Hotel. Turn right on Leho Dr. at mile marker 5 then take the second right into the beach parking lot.
