Family Beach Day

Discover the Beaches of the Royal Coconut Coast

There are many options for beaches along the east side, among six beach parks, depending on what you would like to do: sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling, or surfing. Many of the beaches offer restrooms, showers, picnic grounds, and lifeguards. Lydgate State Park is a great option for families as it offers a wonderful stretch of white sand beach and features a lava-rock pool, perfect for young children. There is also an incredible community-built playground nearby that will keep children of all ages happy for hours. Other beach parks include: Wailua, Waipouli, Kapaa, Kealia and Paliku (Donkey Beach).

Check with lifeguards, and “when in doubt, don’t go out”.

The beach is a wonderful outing for visitors of all types, but be sure to take necessary precautions. Stay hydrated and consistently apply sunblock, as the sun in Hawaii is often much stronger than what you are used to back home and you can get badly sunburned, even on a cloudy day. Check weather and surf reports before venturing into the ocean, especially if you are not a strong swimmer. Rocky shorelines can be especially dangerous when tide is high. Always obey posted warning signs, as certain beaches on Kauai are prone to strong currents or big shore break.
