Regular beach users are reporting that the manager of the nearby polo field is sending employees to ask nude beach goers to cover-up as well as complaining about beach nudity to the Honolulu Police Department (HPD).
This has resulted in recent HPD visits to the beach, and citations issued to nude beach goers who refused to cover-up.
Naturists and nudists continue to responsibly enjoy the beach; however, caution is advised. Be on the lookout for suspicious people or police approaching and be prepared to cover-up bottoms as a precaution to avoid confrontations with HPD officers and possible citations. Top-free for both genders should not be an issue at this city and county beach park. Practice aloha and notify other beach users if you see anything suspicious.
Several beach users are contemplating legal action to challenge the harassment of nude beach goers and to protect the rights of naturist and nudist beach users consistent with Hawaii state law. We believe the Hawaii representative of the Naturist Action Committee has been notified of these recent developments.
Reportedly another beach goer is preparing a website to be called “Save Polo Beach”. We will post the URL when available and keep readers of this blog informed of further developments.
