Biblical rains in December wiped out the three-mile dirt road to Polihale State Park—just weeks after it had reopened after a months-long closure to make improvements. "Indefinitely," is the word from the government boys, when asked how long it will be closed. There is now no getting to the 12-mile run of sand that is Hawaii's longest. Adjacent access to Majors Beach, which is through a military base (missile launching site), became verbotten after 9-11. The good news for visitors is Kekaha Beach, several miles of sand that is open to beachgoers, located around Mana Point from these other two beaches.
