Beware of strong currents, dangerous waves breaking on the outer reefs, sharp coral and slippery rocks.
High surf usually always means dangerous conditions including rip currents.
During high surf, particularly in the winter, the current that is running parallel to Anini Beach can become strong. At times strong enough to pull even the best of swimmers out through the channel in the reef and into the open ocean. This channel in the reef is located at the western end of the park. Make sure to stay away from this area, if in doubt, and inside the reef.
The channel at the very western part of the beach is where the water flows out so stay away from this part.
Historically (as of 2012), 11 drownings have occurred at Anini Beach.
