If you’re on the North Shore and want to jump in the water, don’t bother stopping at Baldwin Beach Park today–it’s closed.
“Due to the high surf on the North Shore, the Department of Parks and Recreation has closed Baldwin Beach Park in Paia for the day, due to waves flooding the parking lot area,” Maui County Communications Director Rod Antone just emailed.
A high surf warning is in effect for all north- and west-facing shores in Hawaii until 6pm tonight, Hawaii News Now is reporting. So be safe, and please exercise good judgment before getting in the water.
