HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - With the return of sea turtle nesting season, overnight camping at Bellows Field Beach Park will be suspended this summer.

That’s according to Marine Corps Base Hawaii and the Honolulu Department of Park and Recreation.

It will be closed starting on Tuesday through Aug. 31 to make way for the return of nesting sea turtles.

The bathrooms and showers will also be off limits during night-time hours.

Normal day-time activities will be allowed although nesting areas will be blocked off, officials said.

The city will also use this three month window to renovate bathrooms and trim ironwood trees.
