Ho’omau ‘O Waikīkī Kahakai 

Serves as a guiding principle for the community visioning process for Waikiki Beach and includes development of several preliminary efforts: 

  1. A community-based beach management and maintenance plan

  2. Economic study of the value of Waikīkī Beach

  3. Stakeholder perception surveys of Waikiki Beach

  4. Coastal and nearshore natural resource valuation model

  5. Beach profile surveying and sediment budget

  6. Beach Research video analysis

  7. Nearshore beach sediment source assessment

  8. and many other related endeavors.

These supporting efforts will be carried out in coordination with the project partners and stakeholders.  Strategic outreach efforts and visioning process will help define the primary project priorities and strategies and create the framework for a comprehensive plan for Waikiki's future.  The WBSIDA has developed a Waikīkī Beach community advisory committee to help inform project development, serving as a community representative to the project team.


Waikiki Beach management plan

The WBMP attempts to balance protection and improvement of coastal resources with the unique economic, cultural, and historical concerns for Waikīkī. The plan will identify and prioritize short-term beach maintenance projects and provide implementation strategies to facilitate progress.
