    Erosion at Black Pot Beach in Hanalei, Kauai.

Starting today, vehicles will not be allowed to park along the shoreline at Black Pot Beach in Hanalei as a precautionary measure due to beach erosion.

Vehicular access at the beach between the Hanalei River mouth and Hanalei Pier is prohibited until further notice.

Lenny Rapozo, director of Kauai County’s Department of Parks and Recreation, said, “We have been monitoring the area for the past few days and the erosion has come to a point where it is dangerous for vehicles to attempt to access this area.”

“Vehicular access in the area will be blocked until further notice as a safety precaution,” Rapozo said in a news release.

Public parking is available along Weke Road, across the beach.

Meanwhile, crews will be trimming ironwood trees along the shoreline to address safety concerns.
