The “Hawaii Beach Safety” Site: Priceless

Posted by Jody on January 2, 2012

Are you headed to the Hawaiian Islands for fun in the sun? You’ll surely be on your way to the beach as soon as your plane touches down!

Hawaii Beach Safety has an awesome interactive website that you’ll definitely want to check out.  You can scope out Beach Alerts (e.g., jellyfish, contamination), Recommended Beaches, Closed Beaches and Beaches With Lifeguards all from Hawaii Beach Safety homepage. “Near Shore” (crucial for beach goers, swimmers, snorkelers and surfers) and “Off Shore” (important for boaters and ocean kayakers) hazard reports and public safety alerts are available for the major Hawaiian Islands, namely Kaua’i, O’ahu, Maui, and Hawai’i and their popular beaches.

This site is so full of useful information!  You’ll wonder how you ever got by without it on your last visit to the Aloha State.

Simply click on the island you’ll be visiting on the Hawaii Beach Safety homepage and check out the detailed beaches. Whether you are looking specifically for a beach with camping facilities, or one that’s known for its family-friendliness, you’ll find the perfect beach for your day in paradise.

For example, are you thinking of heading to Spencer Beach Park on Hawaii’s West Shore?  Right now (January 2, 2012, 9:00 AM entry) the current Hawaii Beach Safety report gives you the near shore hazard (caution) and off shore hazard (high hazard) conditions.  These ratings are updated three times per day, or as conditions warrant. Today’s surf conditions, weather conditions, and wind conditions are all available to you with this very user-friendly website.  Photos, a Google satellite map, and information on amenities such as restrooms, showers and picnic tables are all listed on the Spencer Beach Park page.  There is a wonderful description of the sand and shoreline, the park’s open grassy lawns, shade trees and even the resident birds. Do you want to learn more about the history of Spencer Beach Park? It’s there, too!

Activities for each location (e.g., surfing, fishing, snorkeling) are included. Some beach pages even have more than one webcam, if you would like to see conditions for yourself… or simply daydream about being there!

Aloha!
