Ocean Safety officials are advising no swimming or snorkeling at all north-facing shores including ‘Anini Beach, due to high surf and dangerous ocean conditions.
A High Surf Warning for north- and east-facing shores of Kauai and Ni‘ihau remains in effect until 6 a.m. Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service. The warning may be extended or modified as conditions develop.
Lifeguards are reporting waves of up to 21 feet and rising on the North Shore with very strong rip currents. Spectators are also advised to use extreme caution, as large breaking waves could make it dangerous for those standing along the shoreline.
Beachgoers are urged to heed all posted warnings and advisories.
Additionally, officials continue to advise no swimming at Salt Pond Beach due to reports of Box Jellyfish.
