About this Site


The purpose of this website, and the associated map viewer, is:

  • To identify access locations to Maui’s shorelines that are appropriate for the public
  • To provide supporting information about environmental conditions, culturally-based codes of conduct, and legal frameworks for shoreline access in Hawaii.


Funding for this website, along with an updated shoreline access inventory, was provided by the Hawaii Coastal Zone Management (CZM) Program under Section 309 of the Coastal Zone Management Act (CZMA), which encourages states to improve their CZM programs in nine areas, including public access.
