Laid back, shallow water and amazing views. The boats setting out in the water with the sunset in the back ground makes for amazing photo's. The parking lot is sandy and very bumpy. There are many fishermen and paddleboarders. I could have spent many days here but there's so much to see on this amazing island.

Small pier but great views! There is a small beach on 1 side and a large beach that follows the bay on the other. As you look out you see the backside of the mountains that make up the Napali coast and toward the bay the back drop is mountains and waterfalls

Great place for views! Clean, spacious. On one side watching the kids on the smaller surfs - the other side watching the braver ones battling the big waves! Large beach, lots of parking.

What a hopping place. Great views of Bali Hai. I could stay here forever. It should be mandatory scene on every Kauai postcard. Just gorgeous.

We always stop here on our trips to Kauai. The views of the bay are spectacular. Grandson jumped off the pier this visit (mom wasn't pleased!)

We went in the rain but it still was an impressive view of the beautiful Hanalei bay. Great place for pictures and to eat a snack.

Last year the Hawaii Movie Tour took us to Hanalei as one of the movie location stops. We watched a clip from South Pacific that included the pier, then had lunch at Tahiti Nui. Just had to go back the next day and swim in the bay around the pier. Very nostalgic. This year we went back and swam there... More

We visited here as part of a tour that was visiting film locations on the island. Apparently, some scenes were filmed here for South Pacific. Apart from knowing that, the place was pretty ordinary.

This may not be the most picturesque spot on Kauai but it just added to the need for us to be a part of this culture and place. Gives a great view of the surrounding area with a perfect view of Puff... the dragon is right there for the viewing. Great spot to enjoy the breeze and just relax without... More

Worth the look if your into having a great photos of the pier, ocean and those beautiful mountains in the background. If the weather is right and you go at the right time (as it gets busy), you'll have the photos just like the travel brochures.
