State says sandbag groin in Waikiki is working well

Local News

It’s been a few months since the state installed a sandbag groin at Kuhio Beach Park to combat erosion. They say it’s working really well.

The groin is made up of 83, 10-thousand pound bags of sand. It stabilizes that part of the beach so that the old Waikiki Tavern Foundation is now buried, allowing pedestrians to safely get to the water.
