LAST UPDATED: 01:31 a.m. HST, Jul 04, 2012

The state Department of Land and Natural Resources will close Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area and Kekaha Kai State Park at 5 p.m. today to protect the areas from fireworks and potential damage from holiday revelers. 

Kekaha Kai State Park, 2.6 miles north of Keahole Airport, was formerly known as Kona Coast State Park.

“We are closing the park early to discourage use of fireworks, which is prohibited in state parks, and to protect the public and natural resources of the area,” DLNR Chairman William Aila Jr. said in a news release.

The closures include the Waialea Bay section of Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area and the Manini‘owali (Kua Bay) and Mahaiula sections, of Kekaha Kai State Park, the department said. 

Normal park hours will resume on Thursday. Kekaha Kai State Park is normally open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area is normally open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
