Poipu Beach Having Problems

An article in the Honolulu Star Bulletin reports that erosion is reducing the size of Poipu Beach on Kauai by about a foot a year, and also causing dangerous swimming and snorkeling conditions. Proposals to rebuild the beach are being considered. (Even though these sorts of projects rarely work long-term - its hard to fight Mother Nature...)

[Note: it appears the Star Bulletin article was an AP version of a story that appeared the day before in This article has some additional information, including interesting comments about how the price of sand!]
