Lydgate State Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Lydgate Park is a popular 40-acre ocean-front park at the mouth of the Wailua River. The long stretch of sand fronts a beautiful grass park with picnic areas, facilities and groves of ironwood trees. Two sandy, boulder-enclosed ponds are ideal for kids and snorkeling.

Near the river at the north end of the park are the ruins of Hauola (City of Refuge) and Hikina A Ka La (Rising of the Sun), two sacred religious sites from the 1300s. An interpretive trail circles the temple through a coconut grove. The views inland include the Nounou Mountains and the Kalepa Ridge."

This is a nice family beach and park protected from the surf by a lava pool. There is a lifeguard at this beach.

This was a great beach to go for a stroll. Nothing too spectacular, but the sunsets are amazing here. Supposedly turtles frequent this beach. Nice sandy beach, not too many tourists but there is a resort nearby so I’m sure it gets crowded at times. But it was enjoyable for your stereotype of a state park.
