East Side Snorkel Spots


Lydgate Beach Park is located in Wailua just South/East of the Wailua River. Lydgate is a great place for children or beginners to practice snorkeling before trying other locations. A major feature of the park is "Morgan's Ponds". They are two man-made ponds in the ocean by placing large boulders and rocks in a semi-circle. One pond is designed for keiki (children) and is very shallow. The other pond is around 8 feet deep in the middle/deepest portion. The ponds are very calm even when ocean conditions are rough outside the ponds. There is actually a decent number of fish that swim around in the pond and will usually eat granola bars from hand. Lifeguard on duty, shower and restroom facilities as well.
