Beautiful Kawela Bay is one of the most secluded beaches on the North Shore of O'ahu. It is a wonderful place to swim and many sea turtles make it their home. Kawela Bay is a sacred place and should be preserved for future generations. Please help save Kawela Bay. Your voice can make a difference. Mahalo.

I would like to share a letter written by Morgan Dorr of Kahuku that was featured in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser on 01/01/13:

I hope the Trust for Public Land can save Kawela Bay.  Could you please print pictures so people can see how unique this undeveloped area is?  To lose this singular beach to resort housing is a mind-numbing prospect.

The current owners have blanketed the community with a very persuasive brochure promoting "tomorrow's ahupuaa."

I find it appalling that they boast of "only" two hotels.  And they openly admit to the impact on multiple marine species.  Dress it up any way you like, it's still massive development.  The impact of this would be monumental.

There is still time to save Kawela Bay for future generations to treasure.
