WARNING: Information on current beach conditions is updated every twenty minutes and can be found at the following site: http://oceansafety.soest.hawaii.edu/ Permits for unencumbered State public beaches are usually for the area makai, or seaward, of the shoreline. The definition of "shoreline" is contained in Hawaii Revised Statutes A§205A-1: " 'Shoreline' means the upper reaches of the wash of the waves, other than storm and seismic waves, at high tide during the season of the year in which the highest wash of the waves occurs, usually evidenced by the edge of vegetation growth, or the upper limit of debris left by the wash of the waves." It is essential that permittees exercise extreme caution when conducting activities makai, or seaward, of the shoreline. Proceed at your own risk. In no event will the State of Hawaii, Department of Land and Natural Resources, or any of its officers or employees be liable to you or to any third party for any direct, indirect, incidental, consequential, special or exemplary damages or lost profit resulting from your activity on unencumbered land.
