We spent last weekend there and visited Red Sands Beach at Hana which is really spectacular with a small to mid-size crowd.The natural pool is incredible, and very romantic, as well being one of the most scenic spots we have found anywhere!
Kauai Naturists has verified this by obtaining the KPD police logs showing Takenaka as the complainant. Kauai Naturists obtained a copy of his employment contract under Hawaii's sunshine law.
Takenaka is employed by the Kauaapea Homeiowner's Association, which is a group of homeowners on the bluff above Secret Beach. The homeowner association is the brainchild of one Michele Hughes, a land developer from Aspen and Tiburon, who used to, but no longer, own land above Donkey Beach, a former nude beach and gay hangout on the east side of Kauai.
But, there are several beaches where you can take off your clothes without fear of being hassled.
If you have a Hawaii nude beach experience, I'd love to hear from you.
For a few years his routine was to walk up and down the length of Secret Beach taking phone pictures of nude persons and claiming to email them to Kauai Police.
He called Kauai Police to complain nude persons were at Secret Beach.
From the north (Hanalei and Princeville) go south on highway until you see mile marker 20. Take the left on Koolau Road and go south until you pass a tiny cemetery on left with a sign "Koolau Cemetery 1853" on the fence. Since about 2000 it has been patrolled by a Japanese vigilante named Sakae Takenaka who at times wears a silver belt badge saying "security officer".
He has also been observed at different times carrying a mace cannister, handcuffs, cell phone, walkie talkie, and binoculars.
Private secuirty officers have no authority on public property in Hawaii, and all beches in Hawaii are public. Moreover, topfree for ladies is perfectly legal on becahes in Hawaii.
It is only illegal at Honokohau Beach on Big Island, and at STATE PARK beaches, which have a special rule against tiopfree and nude bathing.
They hope naturists do not know the nuances of the law.
