Lydgate Pond

Activities: Swimming
Amenities: Parking, lifeguard, playground
Located in Lydgate State Park, this large salt-water pool is one of Kauaʻi’s safest year-round swimming sites. Constructed by placing huge boulders in a semicircle facing the beach, the pond is divided into one large, deep pool and one small, shallow pool. The boulders provide protection from strong currents and seasonally high surf. It’s a great beach for keiki (children), with a nearby wooden play structure at Kamalani Playground that will occupy them for hours.

Please note: Hawaiʻi's ocean and beach conditions are as unique as the islands themselves. Visit which constantly monitors the surf, wind, and reports from public safety officials that directly affect the conditions for safety of Hawaiian beaches. Use the hazard signs on as well to quickly assess conditions and help you find the appropriate beach for your visit.
