Reading many good reviews, we went to Lydgate Beach Park for snorkeling. What a huge disappointment! The water was so murky, I almost hit a rock with my mask. Maybe it was just bad luck, and I suppose it's a safe place to go swimming...More

Great little beach with a rockwall built around to create a safe swimming area. You can snorkel as there are all kinds of fish in. Public toilets there and showers. On the otherside of the carpark is a really cool wooden park for the kids....More

A good portion of this beach is covered with logs. It has a really nice paved path, but walking on the beach is limited in spots. The snorkeling was not great, but is ok for beginners. The surf is very rough too.

This park was right behind our hotel (Hilton Garden Inn) and was a great place to swim and avoid the strong surf. We also walked on the paved walkway for over a mile toward the golf course.

Usually a very beautiful beach, I imagine. But in April 2018 was strewn with dead trees that washed down with the flood. If you are wanting beach pictures, they will include all these drifttrees.

Currently, both swimming lagoons are completely full of flood debris. The adjacent coastline is full of trees and driftwood. NO SWIMMING IN LAGOONS. The playground is amazing though and a beautiful spot to sunbathe. Would have loved to visit prior to the flood. I'm sure...More
