Although beaches have opened for solo activities, DTS says no parking will be allowed on all streets and shoulders in Lanikai.

Officials say this measure is to prevent beach goers from congregating and gathering in large groups on the Lanikai-Kaʻōhao shoreline. 

Temporary “sawhorse” type signs have been placed near the streets to warn drivers of the parking restriction.
