Kauai’s North Shore beaches closed due to high surf

On Kauai, all North Shore beaches, west of the Hanalei Pavilion to Kee Beach, are closed to swimming Tuesday due to high surf conditions and strong currents, according to the Kauai Fire Department.

Ocean Safety officials report wave heights of up to 12 feet in these areas.

Lifeguards will remain at the beach towers throughout the day to notify beachgoers of the closure. Warning signs have also been posted along the beaches.

All beaches will reopen as officials deem them safe for swimming.

Swimmers are advised to swim at guarded beaches in Po’ipū and Salt Pond instead.

For up-to-date information about ocean conditions, please speak to a county lifeguard or call the Ocean Safety Bureau at 241-4984.
