Aloha, Friends!
Our wonderful island is focusing on keeping safe during the Coronavirus outbreak. COVID-19 is impacting many of our local businesses, including KONAWEB, but we are happy to be onboard with the required preventive measures. We will not be charging our advertisers until personal movement and travel are deemed safe.
We know that many of you are "addicted" to the KONAWEB live webcam at Kailua Bay, and use the Big Island Forum for current info. We will keep them up and running for you! The popular Big Island Calendar of Events will be on hold through June, at least.
Keep Hawai'i in your hearts, and we will LOVE to see you when the time is right!   -Konabob and Shirley
Those of you who are in a position to do so, may to help keep KONAWEB online.

In response to 143866: Beach Parks / Ocean Access, posted by Heloise L on Saturday, 21 March 2020, at 7:17 a.m.


It looks to me as if access itself is also kapu at this time. Here’s the announcement from the Hawaii County Civil Defense website:

Effective Saturday, March 21, 2020, all County of Hawai‘i beach and shoreline parks, public shoreline access easements, public open space shoreline and coastal lands, undeveloped county shoreline and coastal lands are closed to all access and uses until further notice.
All camping, pavilion and use permits associated with these affected lands are also cancelled or suspended until further notice.

“closed to all access and uses until further notice.” pretty much says it all, but adding “shoreline access easements” would also prohibit using those paths marked with “beach access” if I’m not mistaken.

Malama Pono!
