Kauai East Shore Beaches - Wailua Beach and Lydgate State Park
Two other popular beaches on Kauai’s east shore are Wailua Beach and Lydgate State Park. They are popular for completely different reasons, but they both have their fans. Wailua Beach attracts surfers and boogie boarders for the waves while Lydgate State Park pulls in families and kids for its many amenities and safe swimming.
The Wailua River flows into the beach here as well and this can cause dangerous situations as well. The river and the ocean are always fighting and this results in many fascinating sights yet treacherous situations for swimmers.
Lydgate State Park
There are also bathrooms, picnic areas, playgrounds, lifeguards, and grassy areas. These extras are incredibly appealing to families with small children. Especially with those kids who are easily distracted or want to do something different every hour. Here you can pack a cooler full of drinks, snacks, and sandwiches and enjoy the whole day. You will be able to swim, play, soak up the sun, and never fear the ocean or its treacherous tides and waves.
