This was such a treat to get to walk out to the end of this pier and check out the view. It's iconic for the north shore and you can see the entire bay from here. It's a must-see for Hanalei.

Come to the beach next to the pier and enjoy the swimming and surfing... stay for the magnificent sunset! Bring your chairs and your coolers and don’t forget your camera. Plenty of parking that is free.

if you visit Kauai, I don't know how you could not visit the pier and have your picture taken with Puff The Magic Dragon in the background.

Beautiful doesn't even begin to describe this spot at sunset! Put this on your "must see" list but go early to get a parking spot!

Parking is very tight here. The beach and pier are very crowded. Nice view from the pier and lots of people fishing. A small area of the pier seems to be for kids to jump into the water, even though the sign says no jumping.

Nothing spectacular about this pier other than it gives you a good view of the harbor and the town. We walked out here to take some photos with the fog shrouded mountains in the background. There was also a surf class going on down the...More

Yes! Just grab a fishing license! (I am sure you could get away with not getting one but better safe than sorry because there are hefty fines for not having camping/fishing licenses on Kauai)
