Beautiful view!

Quiet beach with amazing scenery. We visited twice. Can't go wrong. Not too packed and very family friendly.

Small pier into the bay. Lots of close parking so it's easy to get to. It's a great little hangout spot especially in the evening at sunset. You can see surfers catching their last few waves, people fishing off the pier, sea turtles, etc. you can jump off the pier if you're feeling adventurous. It's not very high up so... More

A pier from a bygone era and the place for those wonderful Hanalei Bay panoramas. Any time of day but sunset by far is the best.

This spot is heaven on Earth. Pure paradise. Where mountains backdrop the ocean/bay. Simple as that. : Don't miss it. :)

We packed a small basket with drinks and eats and set up on the beach so that we could watch the sun set over the pier. You can also walk out on the pier, but we preferred the view from our spot. Quite a show without any pandering Hollywood celebrities.

We always visit the pier and hangout for awhile. No better place to get you on island time and just relax!

There's a beautiful view from the pier. It is possible to look up and see the lovely St. Regis hotel. It appeared to be a good place to see youngsters learning to surf. There were also older people surfing and paddle boarding. Nice place to take pictures. Plenty of parking.

If you head there around sunset, the place is just beautiful. Lots of people still there but lots of movement as well.

The pier is iconic. Just take a moment to stop and go to the end of the pier and take a panorama picture.

The pier itself is simply a pier with a nice beach and very pretty view. BUT -- stand on the beach (or pier), and look across the bay to see the land formation that gave us Puff, the Magic Dragon. The hills across the bay resemble a sleeping dragon, with a bare brown patch serving at the eye with the... More
