Beach Walk 580 – Preserve Beach Access Hawaii

This Saturday, Beach Access Hawaii is leading a statewide rally to raise awareness about beach access in Hawaii.

No surprise to most, it is a shrinking resource despite a growing population. You know me and math – and this equation doesn’t work out well! You can read an awesome list of facts and state regulations collected by the Kahea Foundation and the Surfrider Foundation is a perennial source of good data on beaches and ocean activity.

This issue affects both residents and visitors. Locals: I hope you will attend one of the rallies this Saturday. Visitors: I hope you will sign our online petition!

Mahalo to Joe Philipson of Philipson Photography for introducing today’s episode! Check out a couple of pics he posted to Flickr.

Hawaiian Word:
Kahakai: beach

Be in Touch!


  1. Wish I could join you at the rally. I signed this important petition!

  2. Good luck w/the rally, Roxanne!

    Can’t be there to support the effort. but I’ve signed the petitio. Hope that the far-flung network of Beach Walkers will make their voices heard as well!


  3. Aloha,
    Even though I can not be there with you in body on Saturday, please know I will be there in spirit. I signed the online petition, along with the others that came with it, especially the one for the polar bears. They are a great passion of mine and what is happening to them should keep everyone awake trying to stop their demise. The beach seemed to know what you were talking about today and co-operated fully. The colors were so vibrant and the beach so pristine.
    Pomaik’i (good luck)

  4. Yes, the beach did cooperate. Thanks for pointing that out, Glynda! Maybe someday we’ll discover it really does have a mind of its own… I wish it spoke english though.

    I signed the petition. Here’s hoping we break 1000 signatures soon!
