State officers break up large party on Maui beach

MAKENA, Maui (HawaiiNewsNow) - State officers broke up a large party at Maui’s Little Beach over the weekend.

Department of Land and Natural Resources law enforcement cited one woman for having alcohol and warned others about COVID-19 rules.

The state said this part of a broader crackdown to stop law breaking at the beach, including night parties, drug use, public nudity and littering — issues that have been ongoing for many years.

The DLNR said it would release further details on Monday.
