Late last week, I had quite a surprise instead of an intended swim, when I found Kauai’s Salt Pond Beach closed due to jellyfish. This is the first time I can ever remember Salt Pond being impacted by jellyfish. The lifeguard told me that he had counted over 500 of them that day.
Jellyfish are prominent on Oahu’s Waikiki and Ala Moana beaches, among others, but are far less often seen on Kauai, Maui and the Big Island.
I went for a walk instead.
