Ha'ena and Ke'e beaches closed due to high surf; shark sighting at Haena Beach | News
Hā'ena and Kē'ē beaches on the North Shore are closed to swimming today due to high surf conditions.
Ocean Safety officials also report that a shark was sighted in waters off Hā'ena Beach at about 9:30 a.m. this morning.
Lifeguards will remain at the Hā'ena and Kē'ē beach towers throughout the day to notify beachgoers of the closure. However, the Kē'ē Beach tower will close at 4p.m. today due to the Kalihiwai Bridge closure this evening.
Both beaches will reopen as officials deem them safe for swimming, possibly as early as tomorrow.
Swimmers are advised to swim at guarded beaches in Po'ipū and Salt Pond today.
