USA: Waikiki Beach Replenishment Completed

The Waikiki Beach replenishment project has been completed, reports cbsnews.com.

The state Department of Land and Natural Resources used machines to haul sand onto the beach. In some areas where tides once lapped at walls, there is now up to 40 feet of new sand.

DLNR covered more than half the cost. The Hawaii Tourism Authority and Kyo-ya Hotels and Resorts, the owner of the Moana Surfrider and other Waikiki hotels, each contributed $500,000. Work began Jan. 23.

This project significantly improves one of Hawaii’s most iconic and heavily used shorelines,” said Gov. Neil Abercrombie.
