Visits to Waiopae tidepools limited to foot entry during cleanup


The state Department of Land and Natural Resources Division of Aquatic Resources, in cooperation with the Kapoho Vacationland community association, is advising the public that access to the state marine life conservation district at Waiopae tidepools in Kapoho will be allowed by foot only through the Vacationland subdivision until removal of storm debris from Hurricane Iselle can be completed.

The Vacationland community association is opening access to the conservation district beginning Saturday for foot traffic only, until further notice, due to its ongoing cleanup efforts. All nonresident vehicles must park outside on Kapohokai Road. Please follow the directions and stay off private property to avoid hazards, DLNR stated in a news release Friday.

Community association members have expressed their gratitude to visitors who have shown understanding and respect for residents who are working to clean up, repair damaged homes and maintain security.
