Tiger Shark Sighting – Hapuna and Mauna Kea Beaches Closed

Scroll down to content


Yesterday, our last day on the Big Island, was a pool day. A tiger shark was spotted off the beach at Hapuna, and the beaches in the area were closed.

We headed to Mauna Kea, just down from Hapuna, the same beautiful strand of beach, and saw that a few people took to the water to watch the sunset after the guard shack closed.

One group had a kiddie pool on the sand to enjoy the water despite the visitor.

The resorts have seemed relatively empty except around restaurants, but this night we practically had the wind and the waves all to ourselves.
