A dispute between the state Department of Land and Natural Resources and residents over public access to the sandy shoreline of Paiko Peninsula stretches back more than a decade. Signs warning against trespassing have been improperly posted in the area, according to DLNR officials.
DISPUTED PUBLIC BEACH ACCESS
A homeowner has settled state claims over alleged improper use of state land on Paiko Peninsula, but contention remains over public access to the public property, including the beach. The peninsula was once part of 618 acres in Kuliouou owned by Joseph Paiko Jr., who subdivided his land for residential development more than 65 years ago and gave some to the state as a gift.
