HANAUMA BAY, OAHU (HAWAIINEWSNOW) -

UPDATE:

Hanauma Bay reopened and resumed normal operating hours on Sunday morning. 

ORIGINAL STORY:

The popular east Oahu destination, Hanauma Bay, was closed Saturday and will remain closed until further notice.

Ocean Safety crews report that 5-foot swells are within the bay, created by the current high surf advisory. For safety reasons, the bay will remain closed for at least the remainder of Saturday. 

The Visitor Center at the top of the cliff will remain open for regular visitor hours.

Ocean Safety will re-evaluate the surf on Sunday to determine if the beach needs to remain closed.
