The City & County of Honolulu has closed Hanauma Bay on Saturday due to the monthly influx of box jellyfish.

Ocean Safety will re-evaluate the situation on Sunday to determine if Hanauma Bay will need to be closed another day.

Beachgoers should avoid Hanauma Bay, and should exercise caution if going to other South Shore beaches on Oahu.
