Be aware of rip currents where the Kilauea river flows into the ocean. This beach does not have a reef barrier to protect it from large ocean waves. Swimmers and snorkelers are advised to stay out of the water when the sea is rough. If the water is murky, though, you want to avoid it as sharks and rip tides have been know to occur at this time.
