Baldwin Beach Park and Ho'okipa Beach Park to close Wednesday in anticipation of extra-large swell along north and west shores of Maui


For immediate release
Monday, January 10, 2023

The County of Maui will close Baldwin Beach Park and Ho'okipa Beach Park in Paia on Wednesday, January 11 in anticipation of an extra-large north-northwest swell forecast by the National Weather Service.

Gates to the two beach parks will remain locked Wednesday morning while the County of Maui Parks and Recreation Department and Emergency Management Agency closely monitor and assess impacts from the high surf throughout the day.

A high surf warning was issued Tuesday morning by the National Weather Service forecasting surf of 40 to 50 feet along north-facing shores, with possible impacts that include ocean water surging and sweeping across beaches and periodically overtopping vulnerable coastal roadways.

The public is advised to stay away from the shoreline along affected coasts and to take precautionary measures.

Updates will be available at www.mauicounty.gov/mema and on the County of Maui 
Facebook page. For latest forecast information by the National Weather Service go to www.weather.gov/hfo.
